“I practice yoga and breathing exercises regularly.”
When Dinesh Upadhyaya is not teaching science to his Mumbai pupils, he bides his time breaking world records by stuffing objects into his mouth.
Nicknamed ‘Maximouth’, one of his latest feats saw him clutching at straws, cramming all 1,001 of them in his gob for 60 seconds!
In a recent challenge published on YouTube, the 6ft 6 inch-tall professor squeezed a whopping 76 cherry tomatoes into his mouth and released them all fully intact.
Dinesh’s other mouth-cramming records include 100 marbles, 208 chopsticks, 14 glass test tubes and 102 pencils.
Watch some of Maximouth’s record-breaking conquests here:
208 chopsticks ~ that’s a lot of Chinese takeaways!
249 dice ~ his students can no longer play Snakes and Ladders at lunch time!
’17 nails in nose’ ~ that’s one way to unblock it!
Dinesh has been breaking world records since 2010, when he discovered his new found talent
When asked about his preparation techniques, he says: “To enhance my mouth stuffing capacity, I practice yoga and breathing exercises regularly.”
His unusual ability does however take its toll on the record setter, who admits: “After practice or a record attempt, I usually experience swellings in my mouth.
“During the attempt, I feel sensations of suffocation. I always overcome such minor things though.”
Apart from being the highest Indian Guinness World Record holder with 48 records to his mouth (so to speak), Dinesh’s talents are not purely oral.
In total, he holds over 200 world records for bizarre triumphs registered by institutions such as RecordSetter and Limca Book of Records.
And he wants more, saying: “My dream is to break all possible mouth stuffing records as soon as possible.”
