Udaipurís Prince Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar Receives the Guinness Book of World Record Honours


Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar, an Udaipur royalty won the Guinness Book Record for a campaign that collects for the under-privileged and thereafter distributes them to the needy. The campaign named ‘VASTRADAN’ collected over 3,29,250 pieces of clothing material from 76000 donors and the campaign reached out to over 120 schools, 15 colleges and around 30 NGO’s during the campaign period.

Commenting on this special occasion, Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar, says, “Not me, but the Vastradaan Campaign has won the record. I dedicate this award to the sheer beauty of a human heart, the spirit of brotherhood and the deep connect that Udaipur has for all its citizens. I started the campaign as an innovative exercise in giving. I could have asked some organizations to fund the same, but I wanted the citizens, young boys and girls of this remarkable city to show what a large heart they have”.



The cloth donations came from 12 countries including Australia, USA, Oman, Sri Lanka and UAE.  Previous record was held by Dubai where the local citizens had donated 2,95,122 articles of clothing in 2016. Along with that, he also has plans to make the campaign an annual affair and believes it instills the dedication and discipline of giving.



Being a direct descendant of icons like Maharana Pratap, Lakshyaraj Singh takes the responsibility to carry forward the legacies he has been entrusted with. Acknowledged as the world’s oldest-serving dynasty, House of Mewar is 1500 years old and Lakshyarak Singh Mewar’s awe inspiring responsibility keeps alive its multi-dimensional heritage. He studied in Australia and travelled around the world to make the lives of people around him better.
