Flash Mob – Happiness Guaranteed.

Kam karo aisa ke pehchan ban jaye
Har kadam aisa chalo ke nishan ban jaye
Yaha zindegi to sabhi kat lete hain
Zindegi jiyo aisi ke misal ban jaye

And Mumbai CST is the perfect example. All thanks to Shonan Kothari for organizing an event like this, to organize India’s first ever flash mob. Initiatives are the most difficult task to undertake and to make 200 people dance at Mumbai Railway station is a difficult task. So this blog post is dedicated to Flash Mob. 

flash mob is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and sometimes seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, or artistic expression.

So why this Flash Mob? I’ve never seen a video like this on Youtube, without any purpose of advertising or publicity but with a purpose of “Publicizing” Happiness, spreading happiness. Many question that, “Dancing just after the 3rd anniversary of 26/11 attacks, is it justified?” To which many answer, “To Show that we Indians are one” But actually, the flash mob has no relation whatsoever with the 26/11 attacks. It was solely meant to spread happiness.
Strange thing na; when people gather to fight, a whole lot of Drama is produced which we like to watch and when people gather to spread happiness – People question.
Nobody questioned the planning of the same 26/11 attack by Kasab and co. Even if it was questioned, nobody voiced their opinion. Strange thing na; People question here that since the choreography for this Flash mob was done before hand, it isn’t really a FLASH mob.
Talking of Mumbai or even Kolkata, when everyday the signals are clogged with cars, which adds the “Teekha” Spice to our life and a large credit goes to the police. Nobody blames it for hectic lifestyle. Strange thing na; Just 200 people gathered somewhere and people found it disturbing.

It is not strange because we have learnt and been taught to live like this. Live in the midst of problems, issues and “Drama”. It is like, we can’t take Happiness. Approach the head of any office that you see on the street, tell him a joke and he will not laugh. He will turn you out, and you are lucky if you’re not getting kicked.
And so these were my views. Cheers people like this in India who spend so much time, effort and money in creating collective art to make other people happy with only YouTube views as return on time/money invested. Cheers with glasses full of Miranda – “Pagalpanti bhi zaroori hain”

Wherever and Whenever you play the dhol in Punjab, it’s a flashmob my friend. Haha! 😛
