Haldwani (Uttarakhand): Meet the Uttarakhand man Prakash Chandra Upadhyay Indian artist who set a record by making world’s smallest pencil which is only 5mm long and 0.5 mm wide and has an H.B lead. The pencil is carved out of a single piece of wood and an H.B. lead is fixed in it.“This pencil is made of a single piece of wood. The wood has been drilled and the lid has been fixed in it,” told ANI. Upadhyay said that it took nearly three to four days for him to make the pencil.
Before this, Upadhyay has also made a Hanuman Chalisa which is 3x3x4 mm in size and a miniature charkha, which brought him a lot of recognition. Due to his extraordinary talent, he has been conferred with the Assist World Records. Assist World Records Research Foundation (AWRRF) has been formed with a motive to help all people who have extraordinary talent.
The pencil is so tiny that if one loses grip on it and it falls on the ground, there is a high possibility that the lead may break and you may lose it.However, this is not Upadhyay’s first stint in creating world records.
