Berhampur:12/11/17: Conferring recognition to his creative feats, India Book of Records today felicitated Satya Narayan Maharana, a youth from Odisha’s Berhampur city.
Maharana was felicitated today at New Delhi in a special function.
The miniature wooden chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Subhadra and Goddess Subhadra carved out by Maharana were major attractions in the function.
“The visitors admired the chariots by chanting ‘Jay Jagannath’. It was a fulfilling moment for me’, he said.
Maharana who built replicas of 14″ X 9″ Jagannath, 13″ X 7″ Blabhadra and 12.5″ X 6″ Devi Subadhara chariots using waste wood had entered into prestigious India Book of Records on July 21, 2016.
“I am still nurturing the hope that someday the Limca Book of Records and Guinness book of Records would accord recognition to the miniature chariots as World’s smallest roadworthy chariots built ever. My soap craving has also been appreciated. However I am yet to be awarded in soap craving field. I hope someday, my soap sculptures will recognition”, he said.
