Pala’s hotel management institute enters Limca book of records for marking over 100 napkin folds under 5 minutes by students

Tuesday, June 26, 2018, 14:15 Hrs  [IST]

St. Joseph’s Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology, Pala entered into the Limca Book of records, as a team of 12 BHM (Bachelor in Hotel Management) students made 145 different napkin folds in 3 minutes, 37 seconds and 96 milliseconds. 

The function held at St. Francis Hall, SJCET, Palai on June 13, 2018 was titled as ‘Servietten Falten’ which means ‘napkin folding’ in German and was judged by two Taj Malabar Cochin officials, General Manager Sibi Mathew and L&D Manager Reshmi Menon, along with Tojo M. Thomas, Joint RTO, Pala and George Sebastian, Assistant Director-Agriculture Department Pala.

The fifth semester students, namely Sam K Eldhose, Prasanth, Jinsan Johnson, Jiss Scaria, Albin Benny, Tessy Philip, Mebin Varghese, Ebin Binoy, Josen Roy, Mathews Dawn Dennis, Don Scaria and Solomon P.Shajan had set 12 counters of varied napkin folds pertaining to themes such as Hat, Animals, Flowers, Leaves, Valentine, Buffet, etc.

"It's a great achievement for us and I am really proud of my students for making it to the Limca books of records. It was a collective effort and the entire management was supportive since the training days. The team had undergone a 3-4 months intensive training. Our next aim is to make it into the Guinness World Records," said P. C. Georgekutty, the institute's principal.

Apart from entering into the Limca book of records, the students also made it big at the recently concluded India Skill Submit-2018, as they won both the first and second prize of INR 1 lakh and INR 50,000 respectively.

"We believe that equal attention should be given to the academic and as well as to extracurricular activities which help in the overall development of the students. So students here spend a lot of time to build their other skills apart from academics," added Georgekutty.
