M. Dileef record holding cartoonist is ready to set another World Record!!

‘Panthibhojanam’ was an act of revolution. The revolution triggered by Sahodaran Ayyappan is being commemorated in a different context in Kozhikode on May 10 under the aegis of a few artists led by Cartoonist M. Dileef. The centre of attention this time will be a chapatti, 6 metres in diameter and weighing 175 kilograms. This would be the largest chapatti in the world till date and hence the organisers are vying for a Guinness World Records as well. Panthibhojanam, also known as Mishra Bhojanam, in which people of upper castes dined with those in lower castes, was held on May 29, 1917, at Sahodaran Ayyappan’s house in Cherai. “Though it has been 100 years since, Panthibhojanam is still relevant. The organisers are planning the event also as a protest against the recent intrusions into one’s right to eat, dress and free movement nationally. The chapatti will be made by Mr. Dileef and his friends on a pan that is 6.5 metres in diameter. Later, the guests, estimated to be around 1,000, would sit together and eat the chapatti. They chose chapatti as the medium because it is very healthy, compared with the traditional dishes of Kerala. Two representatives of Guinness World Records would attend the event, which will be completely recorded.Mr. Dileef himself is a Guinness record holder for creating the biggest caricature in the world.
