Two New Guinness World Records Set By India With Yoga Event At Rajpath In Delhi

India created two world records on International Yoga Day with the yoga performance at Rajpath led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The record for largest yoga class, with 35,985 people, and the record for most nationalities participating in a single yoga event — 84, performing yoga at one place. But the organizers will have to wait for more than a year for an entry in the Guinness book.

The announcement was made at the headquarters of United Nations, where foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj has participated in the first IYD (International Yoga Day) at the UN.

Swaraj has represented India there and thanked 192 member states who have passed the resolution proclaiming June 21 as IYD.
