Virudhunagar: A 20-year-old engineering student from Thiruthangal in Virudhunagar district has made it into the Indian Book of Records for having the longest tongue in India and drawing realistic pictures of personalities out of his tongue and writing Tamil alphabets as well.

K Praveen, has been certified as having a 10.8-cm-long tongue, perhaps making him eligible for the world record for the one with the longest tongue. An average length of a male tongue is estimated to grow about 8.5 cms-long.

The existing record, according to Guinness Book of Records, is held by a man whose tongue measures 10.1cm from the tip to the middle of the closed top lip.

“Even though my achievements have been recorded in India, yet I seek to take my talent worldwide. This would only be possible if the Tamil Nadu government provides me the aid, since I couldn’t exhibit my achievements globally owing to lack of financial assistance. In the days to come, I’m aiming to write all the 1330 Thirukkural for the Guinness Book of World Records due to my fascination ​towards the Tamil language,” Praveen was quoted speaking to News 18.

Praveen also has a pretty unique way of painting using his tongue. He puts up a tiny piece of glove to cover one half of his tongue and then begins writing Tamil letters in a chart.

Similarly he has also painted portraits of many leaders, including the Late President of India, Abdul Kalam.

According to the India Book of Records, Praveen has the longest tongue of 10.8 cms in India, touching his nose 110 times on average in a minute, as well as touching his elbow for 142 times on average in a minute and writing all the 247 letters in Tamil language in 1 hour 22 minutes and 26 seconds.

He also holds the title of Grand Master of the Asia Book of Records for touching his nose 219 times in a minute, breaking his own record.
