From making the record for fastest typing with the nose, typing fastest with a blindfold, and typing fastest with the mouth stick in 2014, Vinod Kumar Choudhary is now a computer operator at JNU and also runs a center at his home for poor and handicapped children.
Vinod Kumar Choudhary, a computer operator at JNU’s School of Environmental Sciences (SES), who also runs a computer center at his home, where he teaches poor students and needy people, holds 9 Guinness World Records.
Surprisingly, 8 of these Guinness Records have been found for them only for typing skills, while 1 has been achieved in sports.
While talking to news agency ANI, Vinod said, “I have records of typing with my nose, blindfolded and mouth stick. I made the first record of typing with my nose in 2014. I have other records like blindfolded, one hand typing, one finger typing and mouth stick typing. Nobody has broken my record. I break my own record and try to improve. My last record is the maximum number of hands touched by a tennis ball in 1 minute. I did it 205 times.”
Vinod further added, “I set the record for typing 103 character text determined by nose in about 46.3 seconds. When I typed with one hand, the time was around 6 seconds. When I typed blindfolded, it It was about 6 seconds. When I first typed with a mouth stick, its time was about 18 seconds. I broke that record and the new record time is 7.01 seconds.”
The 41-year-old computer operator said he had the idea when he saw a man on the news typing with his nose.
He said, “In 2014, I saw a man in the news who was typing with his nose. I thought I could do that too. I couldn’t sleep that night. After that, whenever I got time, I would Definitely used to practice it, then, until the record was broken, I practiced. I think by the grace of God I will continue to make records.”
Vinod said that athlete Milkha Singh has been his inspiration since childhood. He said that though his dream of becoming an athlete could not be fulfilled, the speed he wanted to achieve as an athlete has now been achieved in typing.
“My childhood inspiration is athlete Milkha Singh. I have loved him since childhood. My dream of becoming an athlete did not come true,” he said.
The computer operator claimed that former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar achieved 19 Guinness World Records and said that he aspires to surpass the legendary batsman’s record.
