Henna artist, Pavan is the Guinness World Record holder for being the fastest in her trade. In just one hour she painted a staggering 511 armbands in February 2012 – where each design had to be different from the other – beating her own previous record of 314 armbands in 2008 by a mind-blowing 197 armbands. …514 in one hour…. Breaking her own record to date!
Pavan has taken an everyday form of leisure in many Asian household – our own the heritage we take for granted to another degree , in the form of body art…the art is Henna
World Punjab Organisation who are supporting the launch of Pavan’s book has followed their ethos to encourage the next generation…’like any business you have Capital, invest in it but most important gain interest- look after your interest and it will look after you.’
Bombay Palace hosted Pavan’s book launch, a small gathering for the very near and dear to Pavan and her family. There was an atmosphere that echoed throughout the room and was one to be proud of!
What an amazing achievement for such a young woman who not in her wildest dreams thought she would be standing amongst such prestige business women and men. Also from the entertainment business with the likes of Magician Magic Singh , entertainer Madhu Singh (Britain’s Got Talent) and actress/ singer Priya Kaladis.
Pavan’s parents excelled with proudness in their daughters success as all parents should.
I wish Pavan plenty of success as this young lady is talented beyond imagination as book 2 comes out in April.
I shall enjoy the rest of the afternoon by tucking into my gulaab jamun!
