Ahmedabad has just made its mark in Guinness World Record Book with the inauguration of world’s biggest lamp in GMDC Ground by the state’s Chief Minister, Vijay Rupani. Rupani, who recently took an oath as the 16th Chief Minister of Gujarat, replacing Anandiben Patel who resigned in the midst of his tenure because of old age, reciprocated, “Celebration is not just buying things, but doing things that increase our contribution in the economy and also help those poor sisters of ours who are involved in the small-scale business.”
Rupani called the Lamp, “a celebration of women power”. He said, “only that society can progress where women are respected and given importance.”
“Lamp of Humanity” is a 34-foot long structure, made entirely of stainless steel, and has a diameter of 15.8 feet, making it the largest lamp in the world. If what the authorities claim is true, “Lamp of Humanity” will feature in next iteration of Guinness Book of World Records, as the ‘world’s biggest lamp’.
