Prof. S. Ramesh Babu, A Retired Metallurgical Scientist (Ph.D. from IISc., Bangalore in 1985). As a hobby been setting world records, recognized by various Books of Records. Few of His recent records are WR64 12 Bananas manually cut into 350 slices in 1 Minute ; WR63 1822 Sideward Rollings in 1 Hr., in
Pavana Mukthasana Yoga Posture; WR62 1700 Abdominal Push-Ups in 1 Hr using an open Gym equipment, etc. He is am happy to inform that following very rigorous systematic practice during the last 3 months , he has successfully set his 65th (Inaugural) World record “1 Hr. ABSOLUTE NON-STOP NAUKASANAS”, on Sunday, 14 April, 2019, commencing at 7.30 A.M., at Prof. Satish Dhawan Park, Tatanagar Kodigehalli, Bangalore 560092. This extremely taxing and physically quite challenging record of balancing in the boat posture was attempted defying my present age of 63! He had committed to the Books of World Records to perform 300 consecutive Naukasanas in under 45 Minutes. However, with a high level of focus and hard determination,
he succeeded in making the committed 300 Naukasanas in just 28 Min. 30 Sec, surpassing his best performance of 300 Naukasanas in 32 Min. during the practice sessions. Not only that, but he went beyond 300 which he had never ever ventured earlier, performing almost at the same pace, pushing my stamina and endurance to humam limits and achieved a aggering 652 Naukasanas 1 exactly 1 Hr., averaging a fast pace of 10.9 Naukasanas per minute. Remarkably, in the last minute, having completed 634 Naukasanas in 59 Minutes, determined to cross 650 in 1 Hr., He achieved an unbelievable pace of 18 Naukasanas in the last minute and reached 652 the Timing official announced STOP at the end of 1 Hr. This achievement was possible mainly because of a perfect harmony between his strong mind and strong body, systematic planning of his practice ns with pre-determined time bound targets, high level of concentration and more importantly excellent control over my breathing and pacing. At the r. punishing feat, he was neither completely exhausted nor gasping for breath. He performed Shavasana to quickly bring back the heart end of the 1 pacing to normalcy.
