Thiruvananthapuram: A fingerprint painting, created by a group of Indian doctors as a symbolic representation to end frequent attacks against the fraternity, has found place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's largest such artwork.

Titled "Ray of Hope", the painting was made up of 15 lakh finger impressions of doctors from different parts of the country, collected over a period of four months.

The record title is in the name of Dr Naveen Koval, an assistant professor of Pediatrics at Kannur Medical College, Kerala, who conceptualised the work, and Indian medical association.

The Guinness Certificates states that "the largest fingerprint painting measures 469.75 m (5,054 ft ) and was achieved in an event organised by Indian medical association, in Kerala, India, on 30 September 2016."

According to Naveen, "It s not just a painting. It's a symbolic representation of our fight to end the violence against doctors."

"It was done with the support of Indian Medical Association, Kerala and with the participation of thousands of doctors across the country."

Most of the work was done by students of Kannur Medical College, where it was displayed for the first time," Naveen said.

He said over 75 per cent of doctors have faced some form of violence at work.

"It is unfortunate that the violence against doctors is increasing day by day at work. This painting is an effort to raise our voice against such violence that a doctor has to face in his daily life," he added.
