    19 Girls in One Car - World Record in Karachi

    Guinness World Records, known until 2000 as The Guinness Book of Records , is a reference book published annually,

    containing a collection of world records, both human achievements and the extremes of the natural world.

    The book itself holds a world record, as the best-selling copyrighted book series of all time.

    It is also one of the most frequently stolen books from public libraries in the United States.

    Here is the detaitls of the record :

    Aymen Saleem, a second-year A’ Level student at Karachi Grammar School, was browsing newspaper headlines in her living room,

    when she came across a story about the world’s largest cake. The story sparked her curiosity and soon enough she was searching

    for her very own record to break. After a quick search on Google, she found the perfect challenge. All she needed was 19 willing girls

    and a Smart Car, a two-door micro-car manufactured by Daimler AG in France and Germany. Luckily for Aymen, she happened to have

    one of them parked in her very own driveway. It was a birthday present from her father Yousuf Saleem.

    On Wednesday, Aymen and 18 other girls, from different A’ Level institutions across the city, including KGS and Southshore School,

    managed to break a previous record by fitting into the vehicle with its doors closed for five seconds. The current official record

    holders are the Climb FitTeam of Australia who compressed 18 students into a standard SmartCar at the Warringah Mall,

    Sydney Australia on January 25, 2010.

    The girls managed to meet the challenge at the BBQ lawn of Creek Club in front of a jury at a historic event organised

    by Karim Mohammadi and Rehan Elahi. The chief guests included the federal adviser on textiles Dr Mirza Ikhtiar Baig,

    adviser Sharmila Farooqi, Sindh Assembly Speaker Nisar Khuhro and former cricketers Wasim Akram and Saleem Yousuf.

    The girls had been through the drill numerous times. They positioned themselves and with precision crammed one by one

    into the two-door car in layers. Within a minute they were all inside the car and not only did they manage to break the world record,

    they managed to stay in the car for a gruelling 10 seconds, double the current record time.

    “I want parents around the country to encourage their children to achieve greater things and believe that when you try,

    you achieve,” said Aymen. Other participants Tanya Pabani, Fatima Ismail and Zahshanné Malik were thrilled about their

    feat but more interested in meeting Wasim Akram.

    The participants included Sarah Ahmad, Hafsa Naveed, Alina Akram (the extra in case someone got injured), Zashanne Malik,

    Fatima Ismail, Rabbya Kamran, Anam Afridi, Muneezeh Jamal, Hala Faruqi, Dania Fayyaz, Sana Ghazi, Sana Currimbhoy,

    Zoya Currimbhoy, Hiba Javad, Sana Javad, Nadia Khan, Neha Salauddin, Rida Ashraf, Eman Samir, Tanya Pabani and Aymen Saleem.

    The team coaches were Hassan Aslam, Sharam Saleem and Shereen Saleem.
