India! The country with amazing diversity and wonders has many champions. All these are real facts and real records. Most of them are certified by authentic record books like Guiness Book of Records & Limca Book of Records. I am trying to tabulate as many as I can. Please help me in my efforts by adding more facts and records.

In November 2006, Kishan Srikanth was recognised by the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest person to direct a professional feature film. He replaces Sydney Ling, who was thirteen in 1973 when he directed the Dutch film Lex the Wonderdog.

Kishan directed the film 'C/o Footpath' at the age of 9 and became the world's youngest director of a professionally made feature film. 'C/O Footpath' is the story of an orphan slum boy who is adopted by an elderly woman who finds him on a footpath. Kishan is already such a big name in the industry that he managed to convince Bollywood star Jackie Shroff, comedy actor Saurav Shukla and national award-winning Kannada actress Thaara to star in his film.

Latest News: Kishan won The Chamber of the Deputies award and The Children's Right award at the Giffoni International Film Festival on July 21, 2007, in Italy.
