For the past seven days, people in India have been celebrating the festival of Navratri with gusto. The nine-day-long festivities that reach a peak on Dussehra have taken over not just the internet but also our daily lives. A video showing this celebratory spirit is now going viral on social media.
What Happened In The Clip?
In the video, passengers on a train were seen gathering in the narrow alleyway of the transport to indulge in the music and jolly of garba. Men gathered around a Gujarati singer as an elderly man was seen leading the pack and dancing his troubles away on the train.
When Was This?
The video was shared on the Twitter page Mumbai Heritage on October 18. Although the exact date when the video was shot is unclear, it is assumed that the impromptu celebration was captured sometime around Navratri.
Where Did The Incident Take Place?
The passengers were having a ball inside a local train in Mumbai. While the infamous transport is known for its overcrowding hazards, in the clip it was obvious that the passengers had enough time and space to have fun on some traditional beats.
Why Were The Men Dancing?
There is no sane answer to this query. It was simply an impromptu celebration, inspired by the merry of Navratri season. The clip clearly demonstrates the spirit of India that allows people to throw it back at any time and at any place.
How Did The Internet React?
The internet gave a mixed reaction to the viral clip. While some people were overjoyed to see the men enjoy their time on the dreaded Mumbai local, others worried about the people who had no interest in indulging in collective festivities and would have been rather irritated with all the noise and the hustle of the amateur dancers.
So good to see the bonding. ❤️

Imagine the plight of someone in the coach traveling to attend the funeral of a loved one. Someone may be unwell. This is public transport.
