There is also a mythological story behind clapping. Let us know about it in detail…

this is how the applause started

According to a legend, the practice of clapping was started by Prahlad, a devotee of Lord Vishnu. Actually, Prahlad’s father Hiranyakashyap did not like the worship of Vishnu. For this he took many measures, but all of them had no effect on Prahlad. Ultimately Hiranyakashyap destroyed Prahlad’s instrument. Hiranyakashyap felt that by doing this Prahlad would not be able to worship Lord Vishnu. But this did not happen, Prahlad did not give up.

He started clapping with both his hands to the rhythm of Sri Hari Vishnu’s hymns. This created a rhythm. That is why its name was Tali.
