From a young age it was always Dinesh Upadhyaya's dream to become a record breaker, and now he is the proud owner of a multitude of titles.

However, "stuffing" records are his speciality: He holds the title for the Most grapes eaten in one minute after cramming 73 grapes on 7 June 2014, and he is especially proud to have surpassed the record of 64 set by his idol Ashrita Furman.


The science teacher from Mumbai, India attained another record by stuffing 12 lit candles in his mouth – a dangerous endeavour.


Also talented with his hands, Dinesh set a 30-sec record on 16 Feb 2014 for Most dice caught with cupped hands while blindfolded (43) with the help of his brother Manish, who threw them.

Watch behind-the-scenes footage of Dinesh’s photoshoot and demonstrations of some of his record-breaking skills as he teams together with Manish and attempt to break their own record for the Fastest time to peel and eat an orange blindfolded in a team of two.


Dinesh’s impressive "stuffing" records appear alongside loads of amazing human achievements in Guinness World Records 2016: out now.
