Mumbaikars And Delhiites Partook In A Global Flash Mob To Celebrate World Peace Day
In order to celebrate the UN’s International Day Of Peace on September 21, hundreds of people from all around the world spontaneously burst into flash mobs in their respective countries. Not to be left out, people from all over Mumbai and New Delhi joined over 160 cities in 48 countries in the global demonstration of peace.
Along with every other country, India’s participants performed a flash mob based on the Zouk dance form, native to Brazil and known worldwide as the “dance of love.” They used the same song and choreography as all those partaking worldwide.
In Mumbai, the flash mob began on Carter Road in Bandra, and then progressed to five other venues across the city, including Marine Drive, the International Airport Terminal, as well as Viviana Mall and Korum Mall in Thane.
The performers also handed out “peace cards” and white roses as symbols of spreading peace.
After their performance at Marine Drive, the performers maintained 2 minutes of silence at 12 p.m. in solidarity with people affected by conflicts across the world.
To ensure that several dance enthusiasts had a chance to partake in this global phenomenon, Dance Villa Productions, the company behind the initiative, hosted widespread dance workshops across MNCs and colleges in Mumbai.
Over a hundred people – a mix of working professionals, students, and dance enthusiasts – participated in total in Mumbai.
