Day – 2
Today is the second day of India’s Lockdown and our training on entering Asia’s Records Book, the incredible Record book of entire Asia showcasing the real talents and the unique deeds. Our Asia Book of Record Holders is pride in developing new record holders and building all the aspirants to have their pie of the toast of pride.
So, now coming back to where we left yesterday with five basic steps to kick start your journey for entering our Records Book. By now, we believe you would have set your mission and plan your strategy for achieving, what to date was looking to you unachievable. Now on being set the goal and finalizing a planning chart on how much to achieve daily, we are ready to start.
- Cut short your first-week performance: As a first step of the second day, we would like you to cut short your first-week target by 20% and add it to the next week’s goal. We want you to art gently without any stress and pain. After the first week, you will get accustomed to the process and your body will get used to it to carry the stress we have curtailed at this moment.
- Take Action at the right time: As discussed in our earlier session we have to be punctual and disciplined to do the required action at the stipulated time and not whenever you will feel like doing. You may repeat it at the later time of the day but must have to perform at the marked time.
- Measure your attempt: Ask your trainer to measure your performance and make a note of it and at the same time also update the bar chart. Otherwise, if you are computer savvy you could add the figures to the computer and it could make the chart of your performance. Howsoever, you do but must fill the readings manually in the card and display it somewhere clearly on the wall to always remain in front of you with clear visibility to make the figures keep hovering in your mind. It will keep you on your toes of doing better the next day and this single thought will keep you inspired for the rest of your day.
- Celebrate your start: Congratulate yourself on making a start and taking the first step towards being a record holder. The first step is the most important step of any journey, without which nothing can be accomplished.
- Write your diary: After the attempt, jot down your today’s experience in your diary of how you are feeling and what you are going to improve upon tomorrow. It is your personal asset and guide, so remain honest to yourself. It need not be flowery but at the same time should not be in a negative tone, no matter howsoever you performed on your first day of starting your record journey. We have instances of people, who took a week or so to come to their real strength, There are hundreds of factors which may hinder you at the beginning of your 100%
Send us your updates and keep us posted in our mail about your daily performance. We would be happy to see you growing and heading towards your mission of rising to the platform that you very well deserve. Our trainers are available online, you could consult them during office hours from 10:00 to 5:00.
So we are here closing for the day and would see you tomorrow with new enthusiasm and tons of energy. Stay fit and pampered.
Training Day – 1
These 21 days of the Covid-19 Lockdown is the right time for one to sharpen one’s skill and work towards one’s goal of being a record holder. Anyone could work on the skill set he/she believes can stands him apart and provides an elevated platform. We all are different in quality as well as the quantity, and this is exactly where the competition comes into play. This clear edge over another let us enter the records book.
How can we start?
The first question now that arises is from where to start and how to start. Here we are listing a checklist that will help one in keeping a self-review of what one has done and how much one is leading or lagging from the earlier task.
- Mission: Before embarking on any journey one has to first mark the objective or the agenda of the journey that where one wants to go and why. This mission should be clearly written and it should be measurable. In case it is not measurable than one cannot improve it or again work on it to further enhance it the next time.
- Planning: Next planning is of prime importance. It sets the navigation for our mission and the steps one has to daily take to make it a success. Without proper planning the efforts are a mere waste, no matter how so ever rigorous or hard work one has put. The planning on paper set the road map one has to follow to keep moving in the right direction and take the right step daily.
- Resources: After one has planned well, and chalked out a map taking to the goal, one needs to work on one’s resources. The availability of resources is important to not to let not lose focus once started. Otherwise, one would end up executing the task by compromising here and there. This will drastically reduce the performance or may even rather change the entire navigation. It can either let one badly trail as per the plans or will not yield the type of initial result one has to achieve step after step.
- Minimum Resources: While collecting resources, it is not necessary to massively collect extra resources or spend lots of money on materialistic things. What one needs is to collect the basic resources that could help one in performing the task.
- Correct Measuring tools: The tools should be calibrated and right to serve the purpose of measuring the performance. A wrong tool can take one directly off the track without even realizing it. And by the time one will realize it, it would be too late to correct from that stage without paying dearly for it.
- Bar Chart: The graphical analysis of any project is a must to have a glimpse of where one is exactly in its mission and how much one is achieving daily. As goes an old proverb that a picture speaks thousands words is a good fit here. What one see has more impact on one’s mind rather than what one reads Therefore, preparing a proper graph showing one’s daily performance is quite significant when one is working to achieve some time-bounded task.
- Place: Selecting the right place for daily work without any disturbance or diversion is as important as ones dreaming of becoming a record holder. After all, it is going to be one’s temple or the most sacred place where one will be tirelessly working day and night chasing one’s dreams. Any disturbance during training can divert one’s attention and can tilt the inclination to achieve something which needs a hard blow. So, don’t give up on selecting the right place in some isolation away from the daily disturbances of life.
- Trainer: Trainer or a Guru is the most important person in any mission or training as it keeps one on the task. A friend could also be a Guru even if the friend doesn’t know about the act one is going to master. The Guru could at least measure one’s performance with respect to what one is supposed to achieve and how much it is achieved. It not only helps but is vital for any mission or a journey to reach its destination in time and as per the expectations.
So, by now you would have learned how to embark on the journey of being a record holder in a given time. We at Asia’s Records Book, the Asia Book of Record Holders provide comprehensive training on how to be a record holder.
Don’t let the Coronavirus Lockdown lock your future.

One of the eight wonders of SCO, discovered in 1957, this imperial beauty cherishes the deep history of china and its culture. Its outlook and charisma are modelled by dynasties and their design, especially Tang dynasty. Located in northeast present-day Xian, the Daming palace is one of the three great palaces of Chang’an (Xi’an) together with the Taiji Palace and the Xingqing Palace. This exquisite land of palace surrounds an area of 3.2 square kilometres, equaling 3.5 Forbidden City, 3 Palace of Versailles, 12 Kremlin, 13 Louvre, 15 Billingham, or 500 football fields.
The palace is divided into two courts- “Front Court” and “inner Court”
Front Court, the Hunyuan Hall is 600 meters away from the main entrance of the palace, Danfeng gate. This hall relishes the history of important ceremonies and celebrations of the state. Walk 300 meters more to reach Xuanzheng hall. The isolation and security of place define the importance of discussions on national affairs between the emperor and his ministers. 95meters north stands Zichen Hall for the emperor, his ministers and private audience. Hall of Supreme Harmony, the Hall of Central Harmony and the Hall of Preserving Harmony of the Forbidden City in Beijing is a typical representation of that
Inner Court: The Linde Hall, spread across an area of 130×80 meters welcomed banquets, performances, foreign envoys in the presence of the emperor of Tang dynasty.
This palace is evidence of sacredness of the rich culture of China and people’s love for it.
In this hour of courage, Asia’s Records Book awakens the history to lead the future. For more information, please visit asiasrecordsbook.com
One of the eight wonders of SCO, The colossal epitome of unity, integrity, compassion and faith enchants history and diverse culture of ‘Incredible India’.

The height 182m, signifying the no. of seats of legislative assemblies, makes it twice taller than the statue of liberty(approx.) and ten times taller than an avg. height of a human being(5”5). The head is up, a shawl flung from shoulders and hands are on the side as if he is set to walk are some notable remarks sculpted by Ram V. Sutar. The enigmatic charisma of the statue’s face and posture have sorted their resemblance from the statue at Ahemdabad International Airport.
Larsen and Turbo employed
3,000 workers and 250 engineers for 57 months to create this magnificent tourist destination. The core of the statue used 210 thousand cubic metres of concrete cement, 65 hundred tonnes of structural steel, and 185 hundred tonnes of reinforced steel. The outer structure is made up of
17 hundred tonnes of bronze plates and 18 hundred tonnes of bronze cladding which in turn consist of 565 macro and 6000 micro panels. The complex is divided into five zones as its base to the level of Patel’s shins is the first zone dispersed into three levels and includes an exhibition area, mezzanine and roof. Zone 1

The Rafflesia Flower has entered Asia’s Records Book for being the Largest Flower ever bloomed.
It sized 4 feet in diameter and was traced in West Sumatran forests of Malaysia.
Renowned as the ‘Monster Flower’ owing to its patristic properties, it bears a very repugnant stench.
The Largest Flower sized around 4 feet in diameter and bloomed in a West Sumatran forest was reported by the Natural Resources and Conservation Center in West Sumatra.
This flower is about 4 inches wider than the previous Largest Flower that was also recorded in the same region in 2017.
The Rafflesia is parasitic in nature and is dependent upon other plants for it nutrients and water. It keeps on growing in the parent plant, eating away its nutrients and consuming away its absorbed water for its growth and remain latent for a long period till it burst out from the parent plant and flowers.
Not to surprise, It has no roots or leaves of its own.
How it smells: But this flower has a repugnant smell and emits a very foul odour, much more like that of rotting meat. This led it to be known among people as ‘Corpse Flower’.
What about its Life: The flower has a very short life of close to one week only. After a week of its blooming and attaining its full bloom it rots and dies. But that nowhere shrinks its pride of being the Largest Flower of the World.
How dies Pollination takes place: The insects are attracted towards the stench of the flower and that leads to its pollination.

Congratulations, Mr. Nirmal Purja, 36, for setting a seem to be tough World Record to break for others – to summit world’s 14 highest mountains in just over six months, which took others years to complete. Asia’s Records Book is proud of your feat and will encourage all our Asia Book Record Holders to take inspirations from your efforts and raise their own bar to set new records.
He reached the summit along with his other team members Mingma David Sherpa, Galjen Sherpa and Gesman Tamang.
Though Mr. Purja has summited the Everest several times earlier also, to set a world record in such a deadly season where 11 people died during the same short period speaks volumes of the daunting task he did. On the top, he had exceptionally limited days to make it to the summit.
Mr. Purja makes the mark that anything is possible with determination, self-belief, and positivity. What he did in just six months is not even imaginable and seemed insane before he achieved it.
He started in April 2019 to be the fastest to achieve this feat to begin with scaling with Annapurna and then remaining 13 mountains in the Himalayan and Karakoram ranges across India, Nepal, China, and Pakistan.
We inspire all to learn determination, self-belief and positivity from Mr. Purja and apply to enter our Asia Book.
