X-ray technician eyes Guinness entry with 3,000-year

Kottayam - June 25 - How many of us know that the day India became independent - Aug 15, 1947 - was a Friday? Or that then prime minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated on a Wednesday, and that Princess Diana of Britain died on a Sunday?

All you need to figure out the day of the year, no matter what year, is to refer to a 14-page calendar that an X-ray technician here has printed.

Shaji Thomas, 47-year-old X-ray technician, now eyes an entry in the Guinness World Records for his calendar, which in 28 pages captures 3,000 years.
