    (1937- )
    Born in Pune, India
    Recognized by the Guinness Book of Records for having the longest fingernails on one hand
    Combined length (as of 2016) of 358.1 inches (909.6 centimeters)
    Longest single nail, his thumbnail, measures 77.9 inches (197.8 centimeters)
    Those nails just look freaky.
    The weight of the nails permanently disfigured his left hand, cause chronic pain in his wrist, elbow and shoulder, and damaged a nerve, causing deafness in his left ear.
    He said, ‘I have so much tension as a result of worry that my nails are going to break, that with every heartbeat I’m tense.’
    He made an offer on the internet to cut off and sell his nails, but no one would agree to his price of nearly a quarter of a million dollars (2000).
    He stopped cutting the nails of his left hand in 1952, three years before Guinness even published a book of records, so he had a motive other than making the book.
    Since his right hand remained normal, he was able to follow a career as a photographer.
    He is recognized wherever he goes and claims, ‘I never have to wait in a queue.’
