A representative from Malaysia Book of Records presented the award certificate to Dr. Rajamani Chellamuthu, Senior Vice President, Indian Customer Business, Astro, today.
This design of this record-breaking kolam features a lady holding a lit Indian oil lamp and will be on display to everyone at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya from 29 October till 2 November. This work of art measures 1600 square feet and took 10 hours to complete by a total of 20 people, a mix of volunteers and the Astro Seithigal team.
Dr. Rajamani Chellamuthu, Senior Vice President, Indian Customer Business, Astro, said,
“Congratulations to all the volunteers and the Astro Seithigal team who made this vast and beautiful kolam, making it into the Malaysia Book of Records. This achievement would not have been made possible without their dedication and hard work. The design of the kolam is symbolic to the true meaning of Deepavali as it represents our inner light that protects from spiritual darkness and we invite everyone to view the kolam while it is on display.”
At the same event today, Astro announced the upcoming release of a 1-hour documentary on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad titled “MAHA Sarithiram”.
