Gandhavalla Umasankar, a miniature artist based in Mulapet here, used his imagination to make a miniature pressure cooker that drew much attention in the city.

In the 3.5-cm home appliance, the artist used aluminium and fitted it with a handle, whistle and other features. The replica resembles an original pressure cooker.

Stating that miniature art has been his passion for a long time, Mr. Umasankar said that he would send the present piece for entry into the Limca Book of Records. He works as a Telugu pandit in Nellore district.
