In pictures: Shillong drum rolls into the record books
Record breakers

Shillong - capital of India's north-eastern state of Meghalaya - has literally "beaten" its way into the record books. The Meghalaya Tourism Development Forum (MTDF) assembled no fewer than 7,951 drummers in the picturesque hill town to set the new record, which was verified by an official from Guinness World Records. The Meghalayan drummers broke the record of a Hong Kong charity, which in February 2005 brought together 7,727 drummers.
