Kundapur, May 6: A twelve-year-old boy hit news headlines after swimming into record books on Saturday May 5. Harshith Kharvi, of Kharvi Keri here set a new record by swimming a distance of 25 kilometres with his hands and legs bound in chains.

Harshith plunged into the Arabian sea at Gangolli at 10 am and reached the shores at Herikudru at 2.30.  Thus by covering a distance of 25 kilometres in 4.30 hours he re-wrote records. His achievement would soon go into “Shabaash India” book of Record.

Harshith took to swimming at an early age just as fish takes to water.  It would not be an exaggeration if one says that swimming has become the middle name of Harshith.  His achievements even at this tender age are mind-boggling.

Just as the fragrance of a flower cannot be hidden so too Harshith’s records cannot be ignored.  He was notice by another ace-swimmer Dayanand Kharvi and his achievement caught the attention of the latter. 

Though he suggested him to try to enter into Limca and Guinnes books of records, Shabaash India came forward first and reached here on Saturday May 5.

Prabhakar Sharma, Assistant Commissioner who was present on the spot appreciated Harshith and wished all the best.
