Coimbatore’s Camford International School student has created a mosaic depicting former President APJ Abdul Kalam using paper cups on Thursday. A whopping amount of 2.35 lakh disposable paper cups in four different colors were used to create the mosaic in a bid to enter the Guinness World Record for the largest-ever paper cup mosaic. The eco-friendly paper cups were used to create awareness about usage of environment-friendly products that will keep our surroundings clean. In a time span of four hours over 160 students from Grades 6 to 11 designed the mosaic. The mosaic design was created over an area of 981 square meters.
The event began at 6: 30 am and the mosaic was ready at 10: 30 am. The whole event was held in the presence of eight surveyors and witnesses who were appointed by the Camford International School as per Guinness guidelines. This event aims to break the existing Guinness record of the largest paper cup mosaic made in Lucknow in April last year. A Vodafone logo was created using 1.40 lakh cups in 627 square meter area in 4 hours and 15 minutes then.

The video recording of the event and their affidavits will be sent to Guinness as proof of their entry. The school had earlier made a Gunness attempt in 2013 by making postcard mosaic of a tiger based on ‘Save Tiger’ initiative. PTI quoted school Correspondent (administrator) Poongothai Arul Ramesh as saying, “This is our second Guinness attempt. The first one was in 2013 when students made the largest postcard mosaic of a tiger using 35,000 postcards on the theme ‘Save Tiger’.”
