Shridhar Chillal from Pune, who held the record for the Longest Fingernails On a Single Hand Ever, has decided to cut off his nails after growing them since 1952.The eighty-two-year-old began growing his nails at the age of 14, after being told off by a teacher for accidentally breaking his long nail.When asked by Guinness World Records (in 2015) about how his nails affect his life, Shridhar said, “I can’t move much, so every half an hour or so, I wake up and move my hand to the other side of the bed.”When last measured, his nails had a combined length of 29 ft 10.1 inches-about the same length as that of a London bus!His parents opposed his decision but he said he would work with one hand and become a photographer, with a customised handle to accommodate his nails when he used his camera.After 66 years of growing his nails, his left hand is permanently handicapped."I am in pain. With every heart beat, all five fingers, my wrist, elbow and shoulder are hurting a lot and at the tip of the nail, there's a burning sensation always," said Shridhar in an interview for Guinness World Records.Take a look at his fingernails cutting ceremony:This record has got Tweeple feeling all kinds of mixed emotions.Did Shridhar Nail it?What About Hygiene?Shridhar’s nails are displayed at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Times Square.What are your thoughts on Shridhar’s nails?
