NAGPUR, INDIA: A city doctor is set to enter the Guiness Book of Records for creating the tallest lamp on Earth -- 48 feet. The electric lamp is 12 feet in diameter and features four elephant heads around the base and a series of yakshas, mythical figures, which appear to carry the lamp. It was created for the Divali festival this year and erected in the Jerryl Lawn of the city. The lamp is made of resin. Guiness is sending its own people to Nagpur to verify the record.
