flags tattooed on his body to in order to have his name inscribed in the Guinness book of world records.

The now toothless Har Prkash Rishi, who claims to have set more than 20 records, now, calls himself Guinness Rishi as he hopes to put nearly 500 drinking straws and more than 50 burning candles in his mouth.

Born in 1942 in a cinema hall in the capital, New Delhi, Rishi first got into the Guinness Book of World Records in 1990 when, with two friends, he rode a scooter for 1,001 hours.

The passion to get his name in the record book led him to perform some bizarre acts, including delivering a pizza from New Delhi to San Francisco and gulping a bottle of tomato ketchup in less than four minutes.

He even got his family involved – his wife Bimla holds a 1991 record for writing the world’s shortest will: “All to Son”.

According Rishi, an auto parts manufacturer by profession, the toughest record he broke was stuffing the straws in his mouth.

“I am the world record holder of 496 straws in my mouth … For that record, I needed space, I had to remove every tooth so that I could put maximum straws in my mouth,” Rishi told Reuters Television before re-enacting the feat on camera.
