Kandivali's Kapol Young Couple community aim to make a world record in origami mosaics
The Kapol Gujarati community ought to be proud for the Kapol Young Couple (KYC) association has taken on the challenge to produce the largest Origami mosaic in order to make a new Guinness World Record.
Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding into different patterns, will be combined together to create a 6433 sq ft mosaic by incorporating 32,125 pieces. The earlier record holders were Greeks who successfully created a 403 sq metres-sized structure.
KYC has envisioned the mosaic to be a representation of the diversity India is known for along with inculcating the country’s national flag in the centre. Bharti Sanghavi, Prachi Sanghavi and Hetal Doshi are the origami experts that have guided the KYC members.
A majority of the participants in the event will be women. Formed in 1986, the 500-young couple-strong association is expecting to mark Indian pride in the realm of world records, this Monday.
On November 11 and 12, 10.30 am to 6 pm
At Raghuleela Mega Mall, Boraspada Road, Kandivali (W).
