The person who posted this item on You Tube made sure to belittle the event’s stats – 25,000 guests. They wrote:

As huge as this wedding was, it is dwarfed by the nuptials of V.N. Sudhakaran and N. Sathyalakshmi, who hosted 150,000 guests on their Big Day in India in 1995.

To which I can only add that the Sudhakaran-Sathyalakshmi event was put to shame by the crowd of 15 million that attended the funeral of C. N. Annadurai in Tamil Nadu, India, in 1969.


Goodness, where do you get enough punch for 15 million guests?
