Maharana had earlier built up three wooden miniature chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra. Creative attributes of Maharana has won national recognition.

I am still nurturing the hope that someday the Limca Book of Records and Guinness book of Records accord recognition to the miniature chariots as World’s smallest roadworthy chariots built ever.
