Soni Chaurasia sets world record in Kathak

Soni Chaurasia, a 30 year-old Kathak dancer, has broken the world record of the "longest dance marathon" with a non-stop performance lasting 124 hours. The previous record was set by Kalamandalam Hemalatha of Kerala in 2011.

Soni's trainer has a lot of good things to say about her. "She is a very hardworking girl. We knew she had it in her. Now that she has broken her the world record, I recall her first attempt in November last year. Despite failing, she did not give up and started practicing and training for her next attempt within mere 4-5 months."
