Abu Dhabi: A 10-year-old Indian girl has set a new Guinness World Record for making and popping a paper banger, three times, in 23.32 seconds.
UAE-based Pratyusha Jain, who hails from Maharashtra, is a Grade 6 student at the Dubai International Academy.
Pratyusha has been fond of playing papers since a very young age. She broke the last world record of 28 seconds and had been practicing for months before showcasing her skills in front of the judges.
“I am just so overwhelmed I could make it to the record book. It is such a great achievement for me at this age,” Pratyusha told Khaleej Times.
Her interests include chess, solving Rubik cubes, and playing basketball.
Pratyusha’s next goal would be to make it to Harvard/MIT, for higher studies in the field of Engineering/Sciences.
