Students Make A Massive Paper-Cup Portrait Of India’s Missile Man

Students of a school in Coimbatore created the face of former President A P J Abdul Kalam, using 2.35 lakh disposable paper cups in four shades, in a bid to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest paper-cup mosaic.

As many as 167 students of Grades VI to XI put in a four-hour effort to create the effect with 2.35 lakh cups in four different colours arranging in a 981 sq-metre area to depict the missile man's face.

The students’ aim was to break the existing Guinness mark of the largest paper cup mosaic set in Lucknow in April last year, where a Vodafone logo was created using 1.40 lakh cups in 627 sq-metre area in 4 hours and 15 minutes.
