World's Longest Beard

On Tuesday, November 11th 2008, Swaran Singh went a step closer to an entry in Guinness Book of World Record for a feat which every sikh is going to be proud of. Residing in Surrey, Canada Sarwan Singh’s beard was measured 2.36 meters or 7.7 3/4 ft at fully packed, Akal Academy in Surrey BC, . Sarwan Singh is teaching music at Akal Academy in Surrey,BC.

The results of the beard measuring will now be submitted to Guinness Book of World Records for official recognition and the 2.3 meters in length, measurement on Tuesday, made his beard the longest in the whole world. The previous record was held by Shamsher Singh of Punjab, India, with a beard last measured at 1.83 metres in 1977.

“This is history in the making,” said Dr. Pargat S Bhurji, the principal and president of Akal Academy, where Singh is a popular and respected music teacher. “Mr. Sarwan Singh is a devout, humble, spiritual man and his beard is considered as a divine gift. He’s blessed, he’s gifted. Hair is a divine gift. So this is a divine gift from God,” said Dr. Bhurji. Singh stood on a stool while his beard was dipped in water, brushed and then measured three times on a flat service with a measuring tape as the judges, media and over 200 other witnesses looked on.You can have a look at the pic where beard is being measured for official entry.
