Mumbai local trains, if you’ve been a part of its culture, have an ecosystem of their own. It is organised in its chaos and, at times, is a microcosm of society at large in the way it is structured. A video that recently went viral on social media exhibited a delightful moment from this para-culture.

The video showed relatively older people singing Kaanta Laga on a crowded train and dancing to it too. A couple of men were joyfully dancing while some were on drums (the walls of the train).

All in all, the band seemed very jovial and those who weren’t partaking in the spontaneous concert were enjoying the unique but not altogether surprising spectacle in front of them. You know what they say, youthfulness is a state of mind!

Of course, Netizens immediately took a liking to the video and took to the comment section to express their delight. One of the commenters hilariously said that after pressuring their kids for IAS, the older folks are singing and enjoying their life.

Other commenters expressed that they, too, wished to be in that compartment. Multiple people commented congratulating the older folks on their youthfulness and joviality despite their passing age.

One commenter gave a special shout-out to the guy who was drumming on the walls of the compartment and we agree! There might be a hidden talent there! The video has received more than 1 crore views since it was first posted and we definitely see why!
