Yoga teacher's fishy record bid
An Indian yoga teacher is hoping to get in the record books by swallowing fish and blowing them out of his nose.
G P Vijaya Kumar swallowed 509 small fish through his mouth and blew them out of his nose within one hour, reports The Asian Age.
He was inspired by American Kevin Cole who holds the record for the longest spaghetti strand blown out of a nostril in a single blow.
Mr Kumar, of Gunduppalavadi in Tamil Nadu, started experimenting with live fish after successfully ejecting peas and corn through his nose.
He said: "This is a kriya (method) in yoga where the nostrils are purified by swallowing fishes and bringing them out of the nose.
"I swallow the fish and take deep breaths to guide it through my nose. There are times the fish might glide back to the mouth, but by inhaling hard it can be brought up quickly."
