Brahmanbaria’s Partha writes name in Guinness Book with longest safety pin chain

He plans to break his own record in future

Update : 26 Sep 2020, 03:59 PM

Partha Chandradev, of Fandauk village in Nasirnagar upazila of Brahmanbaria, Bangladesh, recorded his name in the Guinness Book of World Records by making the longest chain in the world with small golden safety pins.

Partha is currently a BSS (Degree) final year student at Brahmanbaria Government College.

Also, he helps his elder brother run their father’s business in the market of Fandauk village.

On September 17, he got the official certificate of the world record by post.

With this record he broke the record made by India’s Harsha Nune and Sri Navya Nune in 2018.

Now he wants to break his own record by making the longest chain with stapler pins. 

Partha says he feels the urge to do something innovative, alongside looking after their family business. 

A Google search on a computer revealed that in 2018, two young men named Harsha Nune and Navya Nune from Gujarat, India, made the world's largest and longest chain with a length of 1733.1 metres and entered the Guinness Book of World Records. 

To break this record and create his own, he started on the path of realizing his dream on July 23, 2019. 

Connecting 187,823 safety pins one after the other, he worked day and night to make a chain that is 670 metres longer than the previous record. 

Partha himself completed the entire work of making the 2401.83 meters long chain without any help.

It took him 45 days to make the chain or 241 hours and 42 minutes.

CC camera footage has been used to calculate the time.

On September 6, 2019, he displayed an almost two and a half kilometres long chain made of safety pins in the premises of the Sri Sri Pagal Shankar Temple in his hometown of Fandauk. 

At that time the length of the chain was measured with the help of lecturer Rajiv Acharya, Pallab Haldar and Surveyor Marjan Shah.

After successfully completing all the tests, he sent all the data to the Guinness Book of World Records via email. 

Later, on February 12 this year at 9:01 pm, the name of the indomitable young man Partha Chandradev was included in the Guinness Book of World Records. 

The Guinness Book of World Records later sent the World Record Certificate to Partha Chandradev on September 17 this year. 

Partha says his inspiration in this regard is his elder brother Jayant Dev and his sister-in-law.

After setting the world record, the passionate indomitable young man Partha said: "This time I am preparing to break my own record. I will make a bigger chain with mere stapler pins.” 

Partha Chandradev's entry in the Guinness Book of World Records has spread the name of Bangladesh in the whole world. 

Curious people have gathered in Partha’s house to see him after he set the world record. Partha said he is grateful for all the love he is getting.
