Ahmedabad, Gujarat India (PressExposure) May 31, 2007 -- Record. After Record. After Record. A fabulous hattrick of them is what Nikhil Parekh, 29 yr old Internationally acclaimed poet from India has now achieved. Parekh, has yet again entered the prestigious Limca Book of Records India for a 3rd National Record. The Limca Book of Records, which is ranked only 2nd to Guinness Book of World Records will now list Nikhil Parekh as record holder for being 'The 1st Indian to be published in the Commonwealth Newsletter for his poem on AIDS '. An email from the Senior Editor of Limca book of Records confirmed his entry into the 2008 edition of the prestigious book which chronicles some of the most spectacular records from amongst a billion Indians.
Parekh's record making spree started in 2005 when he entered the Limca Book for the record of 'Writing most number of letters to and receiving the most number of replies from World Leaders and World Organizations'. In yr 2006 he was once again published in the book for a record of 'Being India's 1st and Only winner of the EPPIE award for best poetry ebook in the history of the EPPIE Awards'. Recently elected 'Poet of the Year' at Canadian Federation of Poets, Parekh's poems also feature in McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme which is the World's No. 1 Rhyming Dictionary.
A recluse by nature and inexhaustibly writing poems on global causes like terror, peace, female foeticide, environment conservation, love etc..., Parekh attributes each ounce of his success to God. Enunciating poetry as his first and only love he says ' It is God's infinite chapter of unending creations around me that inspires me to be a poet each instant along each of my heartbeat which is again by the grace of God'.
The 2005 issue of the Commonwealth HIV-AIDS Newsletter featuring Parekh's poem 'Aids doesn't kill. Your Attitude kills' can be viewed and downloaded from the website of the Commonwealth, TheCommonwealth.org under head of 'Newsletters' . "This poem is the closest to my heart as it globally aims at ending stigma and discrimination associated with the killer AIDS disease" says an ecstatic Parekh.
Entering Limca Book of Records as World Record Holder is the ultimate honor to be salvaged by any Indian. And each of those who make or break a record undergo rare degrees of human endurance, skill and daring. Parekh's now done it thrice in a row, doing his country proud and truly justifying his title of being a 'World Record Holder Poet'. A visit to his website NikhilParekh.com, richly embellished with his world records and numerous felicitations, leaves readers gasping for more. The Poet can also be contacted for an interview via the same.
