The guitarists of all ages and skills performed Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" in the hill state of Meghalaya to start a month-long Autumn Festival in state capital Shillong.
The world record will be declared after officials nominated by the Guinness World Records submit their report, Robert G. Lyngdoh, chairman of the local tourism development forum told the gathering, which included a four-year-old guitarist.
"Meghalaya has once again broken a world record with the 1,730-strong guitar ensemble which played for a continuous five minutes in perfect rhythm," said Lyngdoh.
The current Guinness record -- 1,683 guitarists -- for the largest ensemble performance, of Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water," was set on June 3, 2007 at Kansas city in the United States.
The annual Indian festival, aimed at promoting Meghalaya and seven northeast sister states, created a new world record last year for the largest drum ensemble, comprising 7,951 people.

Not only will D.C. teach you all of the technical aspects of the foreclosure industry and his proprietary 3 income stream Preforeclosure Formula, he will also teach you how to build the business so it runs without you, which is and should be the ultimate goal for any business owner.
D.C. is a natural born Entrepreneur. He was born and raised in Weymouth, MA. At the age of 14, D.C. started his first business detailing yachts. Within a month of opening the business, he was making $1000.00 per week and he quickly surpassed all of his friends’ income levels. He continued to run this business until he graduated from Bentley College with a B.S. in Business Management and a Minor in Computer Information Systems.
Upon Graduation, D.C was recruited by a startup Internet Business during the Dot Com boom. D.C. was an integral part in developing the sales process for the business.
A year later, D.C. jumped at the opportunity to help his family’s dry cleaning business turn around a struggling division. After the successful turnaround in only a few months, which is huge accomplishment in itself for a multi-million dollar company, he noticed the plant ran much smoother when he took the day off. The ultimate success scorecard for any manager or business owner is to be able to remove yourself from the day to day operations of your business because it sets you FREE.
After his huge success in the turnaround, D.C. was asked to aid in the acquisition of a local mom and pop Dry Cleaning Business. The project consisted of a rehab and process improvement of a large commercial building and a complete business integration. This is where he discovered that his true passion was in real estate. After this project was complete, D.C. left the business to pursue his MBA in marketing, Finance, and Management.
At the graduate school of Pepperdine University, D.C. was an integral part of developing a curriculum for real estate investing for the school. D.C. served as portfolio manager for the school’s Stock Investment Fund. Here he learned that real estate beats the stock market as an investment hands down.
D.C. has been investing in Real Estate since 1996 and is an expert in foreclosure investing, creative finance, low cost direct response marketing, negotiating to win, and business automation systems. D.C. has completed over $25,000,000 in transactions to date. With only one marketing piece he created, D.C. acquired 103 deeds within a 3 month period. D.C.’s Team of Loss Mitigators negotiates over 150 deals at any given time.
He has 20 full time and part time people working for him and has truly mastered how to outsource every job function in the short sale business. He’ll show you how you’ll have the freedom to go golfing, fishing, or take a vacation whenever you want. D.C. has proven that you don’t have to work 90 hours a week to get rich; that’s not what owning a business is all about.
D.C. is now dedicated to helping real estate investors develop new entrepreneurial ventures in all aspects of foreclosure investing including short sales, loss mitigation, foreclosure leasebacks, and most importantly building a team to run the business for you. His proven marketing pieces and business strategies will put you on the fast track to creating huge income.
D.C. now lives a lifestyle that is admired by many. Living in a beautiful waterfront home in South Florida, he is free to do what he wants when he wants. He lives life on his terms and he wants to show you how you can too. In his free time, D.C. enjoys boating, fishing, wakeboarding, snow skiing, snowboarding, drag racing his race car and spending time with his friends and family.
D.C. has taken the real estate investing model to a new level by expanding his business from a one man team to a company that runs without him, replicating exactly what he did in the dry cleaning business.
He has developed the only foreclosure business model that has three income streams and he has coined it The Preforeclosure Formula. He is the only trainer that knows how to do Foreclosure Lease Backs the right way. He has developed a system to eliminate the risk and put huge chunks of cash in the amount of $25,000 -$200,000 in your bank account within weeks, without ever having to sell a house which is one of the biggest challenges in a buyers market. For more Info about the Lease Back program, ask us about the Renegade Foreclosure System.

Snowball the cockatoo cannot get enough of the Backstreet Boys.
The 11-year-old medium sulfur-crested cockatoo lifts his legs, squawks and bobs his head, flashing his bright yellow crest to the beat of the boy band's Everybody (Backstreet's Back). He even takes a bow with a vigorous bob of his head at the end of the 1997 pop tune.
When Snowball was given to a bird rescue shelter a few months ago, the man included the CD and instructions to watch his reaction.
Irena Schulz said she almost fainted at the sight.
Patricia Bays Haroski registered National Boss's Day with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958. She was working for State Farm Insurance Company at the time and chose October 16 because it was the birthday of her boss, who happened to be her father.
National Boss's Day is usually celebrated by presenting one's boss with a small gift or greeting card. It is also customary to treat one's boss with extreme kindness, very similar to a birthday. However, the highly commercial nature of this holiday has caused it to take much criticism and many refuse to observe it for that reason. Others refuse to observe it because they believe their boss is undeserving of celebration.
An international initiative of bloggers known as "Blog Action Day" launched today, with the aim of uniting thousands of blogging voices, talking about one issue for one day. This year on Blog Action Day, which is slated for Oct. 15, 2007, bloggers will be discussing the environment. Major blogs have signed up to participate, including Lifehacker, Dumb Little Man, Lifehack.org, Get Rich Slowly, Web Worker Daily, GigaOm, The Simple Dollar, Zen Habits, Freelance Switch, LifeClever, Unclutterer, Pronet Advertising, Wise Bread and many more.
"For just one day, we'd like to unite as many of the millions of bloggers around the world and speak about one issue - the environment," said Collis Ta'eed, an Australian blogger from FreelanceSwitch.com, and a cofounder of Blog Action Day. "We want to display the potential and the power of the blogging community, which is a disparate community but one with an amazing size, breadth and diversity. By bringing everyone together for one day, we can see just how much can be achieved, and how much we can be heard."
Blog Action Day is a non-profit initiative, and will be an annual event. As an alternative to blogging about the environment on Blog Action Day, bloggers can opt to participate by donating their blog's proceeds from Oct. 15 to one of several environmental organizations chosen for this purpose: Greenpeace International, The Nature Conservancy, the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), the Conservation Fund, and the Sierra Club. Bloggers who would like to participate in Blog Action Day should visit BlogActionDay.org or email Collis Ta'eed at email@example.com, so they can be listed on the Blog Action Day site. To participate, a blog just needs to write about the issue of the environment on Oct. 15, 2007, or donate its proceeds for the day to one of the chosen environmental organizations.
