HYDERABAD: Breaking the records of Jayasimha, Mohammed Khursheed Hussain, Pothireddy Krishna Teja and Sridhar Raju, B V A Manoj Varma, a junior analyst at the Wordworks Apex ITES (India) Pvt Ltd set a new record.
This confirmed his entry into the India Book of Records for typing all the 26 English alphabets in just 2.16 seconds without any space in between the letters, and 3.90 seconds with space between the letters.
However, he has his dreams, set high.
A native of West Godavari district, BVA Manoj Varma Penmetsa pursued his masters in computer applications from Karimnagar and is also an expert with the lower hand in typewriting.
“I have been practicing this for almost two years and it is my dream is to become a Guinness World Record holder.” His stint at the India Book of records, Varma says, is his first step to the Guinness Books of Records.
“Two years ago, when I saw Jayasimha breaking the world record, I have been working on it. And this is very important to me as people get recognised for their talents in different fields and being one among them would be a great feeling.”
Evidently excited Manoj, flanked by his friends and teachers cheering him up, did have to struggle a bit with the second task where he had to type each letter with a space.
And he was successful after quite some attempts.
He used a Dell key board for typing the alphabets without space, while he used a Logitech one for typing with space.
He says, “The type of keys on the keyboard are very important and spacing your fingers between them is also vital. Keys on laptops are surely placed close to each other, but are really soft, hence they reduce the speed of typing.”
Guests who were judging this attempt were DSP G Nageshwar Rao, Krishnaiah Goud, dept of commerce, AV College and R Ramchandhar Rao, head master, ZPHS, Miyapur.
