‘Scrap Guitar’ built by Berhampur ITI students enters Asia book of records


Berhampur: Where there’s a will there’s a way! The students of state government-run Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in Berhampur have proved this saying true by earning a place in the Asia Book of Records with a huge structure of a guitar made out of scrap materials.

According to reports, around 150 students of five trades – fitter, electrician, welder, turner, and painter- have come up with a 70-feet high guitar made from scrap and waste materials.

“They are giving final touches to the guitar which will perhaps be the tallest guitar sculpture in the World,” said Principal of the ITI-Berhampur, Rajat Kumar Panigrahi.

Their unique sculpture was approved for registration under the Grand Master Category of Asia Book of Records, he added.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has also appreciated the efforts of the ITI students and congratulated them for their grand success.

“Congratulations to students of ITI Berhampur for their artistic creation, 70-ft guitar from waste materials, entering into Asia Book Records. Happy to see our youth embrace such worthy causes to show their skills and shine on global platforms,” Patnaik wrote on Twitter.
