After six days, Sudarshan could finally  sleep on July 13

London based Bangladeshi Pandit Sudarshan Das is attempting to achieve his 4th Guinness World Record in the Longest Individual Drum Kit Marathon for over 140 hours. 

In order to chase his dream, Sudarshan played drums for 140 hours 5 minutes at the London Enterprise Academy, starting on July 8. He played drums for the next six days straight. The whole process was recorded on two different cameras. He got a 5 minute break every hour, in accordance with Guinness rules and regulations.  

After six days, Sudarshan could finally  sleep on July 13. 

Video footage and log files had to be submitted in two weeks to the Guinness World Record authorities.  He has submitted all the required files and signatures from local witnesses and is waiting for the final decision from the Guinness Record authorities. 

He aspires to raise £3,500 to provide money for orphaned children around the world as part of his Guinness World Record attempt.

This World Record will build on the 3 previous records that Pandit Sudarshan Das has already achieved. 

He is currently the Guinness World Record holder for Longest Tabla Marathon (557hrs 11min), Longest Dhol Marathon (27hrs) & Longest Individual Drum Roll (14hrs).

Last year, as part of his Guinness World Record attempt for the Longest Individual Drum Roll, Pandit Das raised money for displaced Rohingya refugees. 

As part of his performance tour later in the year, he and his team visited the Rohingya Camp near Cox's Bazar and gave school books, bags, pens, and pencils to school children in the camp.
