Yet Another Feather In Our Cap – The World’s Largest Ball Point Pen !

We Telugu people have been setting some rather impressive records over the years. We even did a story on it! And now, the newest feather in our cap is in the form of the world’s largest ball-point pen, set by Acharya Makunuri Srinivas.
The enormous pen was made by Archarya Makunuri Srinivasa and part of its meaningfulness comes from the fact that it was inspired by a pen his mother gave him as a young boy.
Engraved with scenes from mythology, Archarya’s magnificent creation measures 5.5 m in length – about 38 times the size of a regular biro – and weighs a hefty 37.23 kg.
When the writing device is held upright there is fear that it will split in two – but thankfully it stays in one piece with Archarya even able to draw a smiley face!
As per the Guinness World Records guidelines, the supersized pen dispenses ink at its tip during use by the rolling action of a small metal sphere, performing just like its smaller siblings.
This record achievement was an incredibly proud moment for inventor Archarya, and his whole village turned out to witness the pen’s momentous debut demonstration.
