Shonan KothariIt is said that each Mumbai local travels from the city's historic Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus at least once. And that is why on Sunday, 27th of November, the railway station was the location for 200 local Mumbaikars to carry out something unusual and exceptional. And the entire credit goes to the CSR worker Shonan Kothari, who got the 200 people together and danced in the midst of the jam-packed station, on the 3 years and a day after the Nov 26 attacks which occurred at the same location.

A YouTube video of the flash-mob has been watched almost more than 150,000 times now and is still going on like a virus on social networking sites.

Kothari began working on the thought a month before and got to knew that she must have to work speedily to catch more and more local citizens on the project. When asked why 200 people? She simply said that this was only a big sufficient number in her head at that moment.

Further she said that she e-mailed 20 of her best buddies and requested them to engage 20 persons each, on the clause they would be mum on the subject of this. She actually didn't wish for it to be publicized it on social media or on an open stage or something, for the reason that that would mess up the surprise factor.

Kothari as well declined to receive finance from someone, and decided to pay out completely from her owns pocket. She said that she did have people who desired to pay money for it but she didn't desire to make this for profit or business-related at all, and it was just and merely in relation to having fun.

A 29 year old local Mumbai resident and a professional artist Anuj Sinha, who was an eyewitness at the do and said at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) on Sunday he was there to hold a train for Bandra, when the station's announcement speaker all of a sudden began playing the title track of Aamir Khan's Rang De Basanti, which was further followed by an unprepared dance act by 200 strange people. Witnessing the whole incident, Sinha was completely amazed that he decided to miss his train.

In 2003, New York City was the first to organise such a systematically flash-mob, which is however at present is an expected feature in a number of western nations.

Organiser of this Mumbai flash-mob, Shonan Kothari, said that she in fact always wished for to be a part of some flash-mob, after watching some videos of it on YouTube, and thus one fine day decided to make such one.

The group was separated into four batches of roughly 50 people each, and were been rehearsing it for the previous two weeks at a yoga studio to pull off the synchronization between them. Participants who danced in this mo were aged from 4 to 60.

23 year old Priya Srivastav, who was the first one to put his step forward into a dance at the station, said that they rehearsed very hard and they were the craziest four minutes of her life.

Mumbai flash mob

It was Mumbai's first across-the-board city-dweller flash-mob, where a set of people unexpectedly come together at a public spot, carry out some entertaining action for a short phase of time and then scatters speedily as if nothing has occurred. On the other hand, this is not Mumbai's first flash mob, as quite a few brands have already prepared such ideas in history, but this is without a doubt the first time it has got a wide-reaching awareness.
