Ludhiana, March 4
In what took city residents by surprise, a group of people broke out in a sudden dance, piquing the interest of onlookers.

It was at about 5 pm when the “flash mob” started dancing in the main market of Sarabha Nagar for about 10 minutes.

This was the second such event in the city, but first time in the open.

People of all ages and from different walks of life let their hair loose as they performed impromptu on various songs, including Desi Girl, Desi Boys, Senorita and Jai Ho.

They had come together only three-four days ago as the word spread and they decided to have some fun.

Some participants were enrolled with a dance academy. Alice Bachy, a French national pursuing sociology at the PAU under a student exchange programme, was elated to be a part of the group.

“I wanted to learn dancing, so when I came to know about this event, I was excited,” she said. “I have participated in a flash mob once before in France, but it was more fun here,” she added.

Iqbal Singh Gill, a 66-year-old retired Army officer, said it was great fun to be part of the dance. It was fun to learn dance moves over a period of a few days. He participated in the event along with his wife.

Another PAU student from Vietnam, Levan, pursuing an MSc degree, said it was exhilarating to watch the “mob” perform.

Harjinder Kukreja, another participant, said the “flash mob” was a new phenomenon in the city and suddenly changed the atmosphere into a celebration.

Vineet, a resident of Rishi Nagar, said it seemed like they were on the streets of France as they had not seen any such thing here before.
