Loneliness is a growing concern in India and with this world record our objective is to convey a message to the nation that a small gesture is enough to make someone feel less left out, less lonely and loved and cared for. The world record is another step in fostering togetherness & inclusivity by bringing people together. I am extremely thankful to the children and the people of Lucknow who played a crucial role in making this achievement possible. Today, we’ve become ‘We’ for the children, and we aspire to continue this journey of togetherness for others as well.”

Previously this record happened in 2019 with 7674 notebooks, I had adjudicated that one as well. And, I was here today to verify what Vodafone Idea does and how many notebooks they use etc. The design and the notebooks were already pre-approved. After running the final checks, I am very happy to announce that with 23071 notebooks, Vodafone Idea has broken the previous record and created a new Guinness World Record title for largest notebook sentence. I would like to congratulate Vi for achieving this feat.”
