When I was a schoolboy, we were once beaten badly by our teacher, because my friend broke his nail. The teacher had grown a very long nail. We asked him why he had beaten us so much just for breaking his nail. He said that we would not understand as we had never grown long nails. Unless we grew long nails, we would never understand the kind of care required not to break them. After that we took it as a challenge and started to grow our own nails. As the nails grew, the problems started to increase. First our family members opposed, then teachers were opposed, but I decided from that point on I would never cut my nails again. Initially, difficulties appeared everywhere in my daily life. My family really didn’t like it. No one would wash my clothes, and I had to wash them by hand. Finding a job was also difficult, as no one was ready to employ me. When I was to get married, no one was ready to marry me, I saw nearly 10-12 girls. If the girl agreed to marry, her parents would say I would strangle their daughter’s neck and refuse. if the parents agreed, the girl would say she would not marry such a dirty person. Finally, I got married to my elder brother’s sister-in-law at the age of 29. After being recognised by Guinness World Records, I felt like I had achieved the biggest goal in my life. And now I can tell people wherever I go with pride about my title and while travelling, people will recognise me as someone who has appeared in the Guinness World Records book. Even when I travel on the road, people will say I am in the Guinness World Records book and I will get preference wherever I need to go. If I had decided to cut my nails, I would not have a Guinness World Records title now. I have been growing my nails since 1952 so it is now 62 years since I first started to let my nails grow. Now that I am 78 years old , my nails have become much more delicate due to my age, so my wish is to preserve these nails in a museum. To date I have not been able to earn much because of these nails, so my last wish is to get some compensation for it.
