Kannur man creates record by carving 5 historic monuments in India on soap
Kannur: With his hobby of carving beautiful sculptures on different types of soaps, Poovathur native Nidhin has entered the India Book of Records. He has created the record by making miniature figures of five historic monuments in India on soap.
Nidhin made Taj Mahal, Qutub Minar, India Gate, Charminar and Gateway of India by carving soap bars. He took about 8-10 hours on an average to complete each sculpture. The sculpture of Taj Mahal was completed taking 15 hours.
Nidhin applied for the record on the website of India Book of Records. He obtained permission for exhibiting the skill and was given the record later. He started carving soaps after making a ring using the thorn of an Indian coral tree (Murikku in Malayalam) when he was in school.
Currently, Nidhin works in the IT industry in Bengaluru and is now working from home owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. He is the son of Narayanan and Sathi.
