  • What do you know about India?

  • Yeah, the land of spices, the Taj Mahal, and all that jazz.

  • But what about all the bizarre world records held in this country?

  • From the world's longest mustache to the fastest nose-typer on the planet and every oddity in between!

  • Ok, let's start with something that'll really tug at your heartstrings.

  • Standing at just 2 feet tall is an adorable little cow that goes by the name Manikyam.

  • But she's not just any tiny cow, she's the world's shortest!

  • And cutest if you ask me!

  • But you didn't, so let's move on!

  • Hey, you feeling a little hungry?

  • How about some chapati?

  • In case you've never heard of it, chapati is a flatbread that's traditional to Indian cuisine.

  • If you wanna cook it yourself, all you need is whole wheat flour, or chapati flour, ice cold water, and a bit of salt.

  • Oh, sorry, this isn't a cooking channel now, is it?

  • Anyway, for anyone with eyes bigger than their belly, how'd you like to have a go at the world's biggest chapati?

  • It only weighs 319 pounds!

  • Yeah, good luck!

  • Since we're on the topic of food, here's another record-breaking, mouth-watering item.

  • Biryani is a traditional Indian dish made with rice, meat, vegetables, and eggs.

  • Well, a company called Kohinoor Foods decided to make a whole bunch of it back in 2008.

  • And when I say a whole bunch, I mean 31,000 pounds of the stuff!

  • You could feed a whole village!

  • Ok, let's move away from the food before my stomach decides it's time for lunch.

  • Let me tell you about Major Singh.

  • This guy carries around 77 pounds of pure turban made from 1,312 feet of cloth.

  • And, yes, it is the world's longest, for now.

  • But it looks like Avtar Singh Mauni and his 2,116-foot-long turban are coming for that title!

  • Until that day comes, Guinness has Major Singh's turban as the longest.

  • Now let's delve a little deeper into the most bizarre records India holds.

  • A guy named Vinod Kumar Chaudhary, from New Delhi, holds the world record for the fastest typing using only his nose.

  • In 46.3 seconds, he typed the sentence "Guinness world records have challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time."

  • You think you can beat his record?

  • You better get to practicing then!

  • March 4, 2010 marked a very important event.

  • At least when it comes to the fascinating world of facial hair.

  • A man named Ram Singh Chauhan broke the world record for the longest mustache ever.

  • His whiskers are about 14 feet long, and it took him, get ready for this, 32 years to grow!

  • On October 26, 2017, 578 women formed the longest head massage chain in the world!

  • The probably very relaxing event was organized by Bajaj Almond Drops Hair Oil in order to promote their new product.

  • Man, I bet those guys carrying around those larger-than-life turbans could use a nice head massage, don't you think?

  • We all know that yoga is a really important part of Indian culture.

  • Well, have you ever seen the world's largest yoga class?

  • It might come as no surprise that it took place in India, but exactly how large it was might come as a shock.

  • On June 21, 2018⁠—which is World Yoga Day, by the way⁠—100,984 people gathered in the Indian town of Kota for one massive yoga sesh!

  • They nearly doubled the previous record that was also set in India with 54,522 participants in 2017.

  • Hm, I wonder how many people will be there this year!

  • Now, this one proves that India is one of the most neighborly countries on our planet.

  • In 2018, 1,730 people gathered in Kerala for a nice friendly handshake and a world record for the longest handshake relay!

  • Congrats to Suraj and Rajesh Kumar Meher for creating the world's largest remote control in 2018.

  • The remote is almost 15 feet long, and, get this, it actually works and everything!

  • All I gotta say is one, there's a remote you'd never have to worry about losing, and two, how big is the TV it goes to?

  • If you're ever feeling down and really in need of a hug, just head to India!

  • And if you want a whole bunch of them, just find Jayasimha Ravirala, who broke the world record for the most hugs given in one hour by an individual with 2,436 hugs!

  • Ah, warms my heart!

  • When most people think of famous Indians, they probably imagine Mohandas Gandhi.

  • But what if you saw 4,772 of him?

  • Well, I'd probably be getting my eyes checked right away.

  • Anyway, you could've on October 2, 2018, if you happened to be in the city of Nalgonda, where the world's largest gathering of People Dressed as Mohandas Gandhi took place.

  • They even had fake mustaches, glasses, and walking sticks!

  • Remember Ram Singh Chauhan and his epic mustache?

  • Well, how about the world's longest hair?

  • Technically, it's the longest hair on a teenager, 16-year-old Nilanshi Patel to be exact.

  • This teen's record-breaking hair is 5 feet 7 inches long!

  • Wanna know how she achieved it?

  • It's kinda simple, she just stopped cutting her hair.

  • No, seriously, she said that she'd decided never to cut it again after getting a really bad haircut when she was 6.

  • Must've been pretty traumatic for her!

  • Well, since we're on the topic of hair,

  • an Indian man named Victor Anthony has the longest ear hair in the world.

  • It's a little over 7 inches long. So, yeah, there's that.

  • On March 21, 2017, 4,620 people in India set

  • a new world record for the largest tree hug.

  • This record was part of the International Day of Forests, and each participant had to

  • hug one tree for at least 60 seconds.

  • Hey, nature needs our love too!

  • Let's go back to hilariously large items, like a giant flute!

  • Yup, it's the longest one you can find in the world, and it's just shy of 12 feet

  • long!

  • And in case you were wondering, yes, you can play it.

  • In fact, it was used to play the Indian national anthem!

  • Now, meet the lovely Jyoti Kisanji Amge.

  • You might know her from "American Horror Story: Freak Show," where she played the role of Ma

  • Petite.

  • But she's not just famous on the big screen, she's also the world's shortest woman!

  • She got the title at the age of 18 and stands at 2 foot 1.

  • Guinness World Record judge, Mike Janela, is quoted as saying, “She may be the shortest

  • living woman, but Jyoti Amge is one of the biggest personalities we have in the Guinness

  • World Records universe.”

  • Man, I'd like to meet her too!

  • Speaking of the big screen, here's a movie poster you couldn't miss if you tried!

  • Actually, we have two records broken here: the world's largest poster advertises the

  • most expensive film produced in India!

  • The poster itself covers an area of about 51,600 square feet.

  • That's almost as big as a football field, by the way.

  • Now I see why the movie was so expensive!

  • The Central Institute of Plastics Engineering & Technology managed to break a new world

  • record on January 23, 2019 when they got 3,373 people together to form the largest human

  • recycling logo.

  • Now that's an eye-catching way to draw attention to the world's plastic waste crisis!

  • India sure does know a thing or two about

  • recycling, and they don't just stand around and make big signs with their body.

  • On October 2, 2018, over 73,500 pounds of plastic bottles were recycled within a period

  • of 12 hours, breaking the new world record.

  • Looks like they're really trying to do something about the country's pollution epidemic,

  • which is definitely good news!

  • Alright, since we're talking about India, you know I have to mention dance, and this

  • country does hold several records connected to it.

  • In February 2017, 9,219 participants presented the largest Bollywood dance in order to show

  • love and respect to their country.

  • But that's just the beginning!

  • Have you ever heard of the Karma Naach dance?

  • It's a pretty mesmerizing traditional Indian dance, especially when performed by 3,049

  • people in 61 synchronized circles.

  • Now that'll make you dizzy!

  • The number one spot on today's list is a real gem.

  • No, seriously, it's a giant gem!

  • Well, a ruby to be exact, and it's the largest one in the world.

  • Rightfully dubbed The King Ruby, this 48-pound beauty can be found in the Prestige Gems & Jewels

  • showroom in Bangalore, India.
