World's Biggest Greeting Card?
From Daily India.
A 62-feet New Year greeting card for President APJ Abdul Kalam.
An ardent fan of President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, from Madhubani in Bihar, has posted a 62-feet long New Year greeting card carrying signatures of 2,500 students. Alamgir Dilkash, who works as a schoolteacher in Madhubani, decorated the greeting card by penning down President Kalam's achievements on it.
Dilkash said he had sent a fifty-feet greeting card to President Kalam last year.
"I have prepared 62 feet long greeting card for him. I have mentioned President Kalam's lifetime achievements in the card. The card carries children's signatures because he loves them a lot. It took me over two months to prepare it. Initially, the children were hesitant to sign but when they were told it is for President Kalam, they signed it with enthusiasm," said Alamgir.
