Thirteen students of ISM have found a place in THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS by being a part of a team called MICQ (based in Chennai) in making the WORLDS LONGEST CROCHETED SCARF measuring 14.09 kilo metres. Nearly 700 women and children across India & Indian diaspora in different countries have come together in making this scarf. 52 Indian women & 27 children from Oman have contributed towards making the world’s longest crocheted scarf.
Kids from Team Oman have contributed 2 scarves per head ,each measuring 7 inches wide & 80 inches long which were later sent to Chennai & were joined together with the rest of contributed scarves to make this longest scarf. This was not only a Guinness record attempt but also a mission with a cause. The world-record scarf was dismantled into nearly 5400 individual pieces, most of which was donated to local NGOs across India. Around 900 scarfs were sent to the Secretary-General of the United Nations and heads of state and government as a step towards global democracy & solidarity and spreading peace.
The finale was held on 21st May,2017 at MNM Jain Engineering college, Chennai where it was officially announced that the group has crossed the benchmark of 1 km distance set by Guinness and achieved 14.09 kilometer scarf .
