Eyeing the Guinness world record, 550 school students in New Delhi dressed up as Noble Prize-winning scientist Albert Einstein during the ongoing India Science Festival. The students were all dressed in green sweaters complete with a tie and wearing giant white hair wigs and white moustaches.

The record of largest gathering of people dressed as Albert Einstein was earlier held by a school in California where 304 students participated in a similar event in 2015.

Minister of Science and Technology, Dr Harsh Vardhan, also attended the event. “To win big awards our scientists need to develop more of a killer instinct from this stage. We need to develop in these students a passion for science. When that happens in the next 20 to 40 years one may see more Sir C V Ramans in India and that is what we are doing by such efforts to inculcate a deep passion to pursue science as a worthwhile career,” NDTV quoted him as saying.
