Thousands of Indian children gathered in the southern city of Bangalore to brush their teeth, altogether, in an effort to raise awareness about good oral hygiene.

Dr. Girish Rao from My Dental Plan, a program that organized Thursday’s event, says the 17,505 kids from 20 schools who participated set a new record for mass teeth-brushing activity.

    using hundreds of innocent school children to get into Guinness ? the kids had no choice maybe. not to mention that 4 children fainted. meaningless record. not only this school and the medical plan. whoever it is. please enter Guinness by virtue of your own achievement rather than at the cost of others.
