Did you Know?
Acharya Makunuri Srinivasa, a visionary and inventor from India, has created history by breaking the Guinness World Record. He created the world’s largest ballpoint pen, which he made in 2011.
Srinivasa’s masterpiece is the redefinition of the very essence of penmanship. This record-breaking pen measures 5.5 metres long, weighs 37.23 kg, and was created after Acharya found it challenging to write with regular-sized pens due to his big hands.

This colossal creation is more than just a writing tool; it celebrates ingenuity and the indomitable human spirit. The pen, adorned with intricate detailing and vivid colours, mirrors the depth of its creator’s imagination. It was no small feat to craft this monumental pen. Srinivasa, an artist and engineer, spent months meticulously designing and assembling the pen, ensuring every detail was a brushstroke of perfection. The sheer size of the pen is awe-inspiring, attracting attention from art enthusiasts and curious minds alike.
