What its organizers are claiming is the world's largest tea party ever took place in the Indian city of Indore over the weekend when 32,681 people attended the event.
"From an industrialist to the man on the street, a cup of tea is a major bonding factor in India," said Sanjay Mani, general manager of the Dainik Bhaskar newspaper, which helped arrange the event.
A representative of the Guinness Book of World Records, which judges such claims, was in attendance. Nearly 1,000 volunteers served the tea at Nehru Stadium.
The largest prior such event was held in Nishio, Japan, in 2006 when 14,718 people participated.
