M. Savithru completed his B.Tech in Fashion Technology and is passionate about micro art since the age of 16. He has carved Tamil letters, statues of leaders like Kamaraj, Jayalalithaa, and Nethaji on the pencil tips.

Apart from pencil tips, he has done carvings in soaps, chalk piece, fruits and vegetables too. He attempted to enter the Universal Book of World Records on January 24 this year by making 100 carvings from 1.10 p.m. on January 24 to 1.10 p.m. the next day. He had created 30 micro arts on pencil tips, 50 in soaps, 10 in chalk pieces and another 10 in vegetables and fruits. His attempt was witnessed by a representative from the Universal Book of Records.

He also plans to enter the Guinness Book of World Records by creating world’s tiny chess board in the size of 1 cm x 1 cm, as the previous world record was 1.53 cm x 1.53 cm.
