Rohan Ajit Kokane, a Class III student from St. Xavier’s High School of Belgaum, successfully cleared the Guinness World Record attempt in blindfold limbo skating by passing under a car blindfolded in Hubli on Friday.

Unfazed by the failure of the first two attempts, Rohan passed under the car (clearing a height of 6.75 inches) with ease in his third and final attempt to create a new Guinness Record in a new category.

As the sun was setting, the crowd mainly comprising engineering students of BVB College of Engineering and Technology, cheered Rohan chanting his name.

As the name “Rohan” reverberated in the air, the boy cleared the record attempt. As the crowd applauded him with a standing ovation, tears of happiness rolled down the eyes of Anupama, Rohan’s mother, while the proud father Ajit stood speechless for a moment.

Then it was celebration time with students entering the basketball ring where the record attempt was made to greet the achiever. Meanwhile, the crowd continued clapping for as principal of BVB College Ashok Shettar greeted the boy with a bouquet and memento.

When reporters asked Rohan how he felt, he said “Achcha lagta hai” (It feels good). And, he didn’t forget to thank his parents and coach for his achievement.

The record attempt was organised as part of a national-level technical festival “Pleiades”.

As per the Guinness Record authorities, the organisers got the entire event recorded. They would send the video recording to the authorities for verification. The authorities would then declare whether it is Guinness Record or not.
