A heartwarming video of a Delhi school teacher having a dance session with students on the last day of summer camp has created a lot of buzz on social media. The clip, which was shot inside a classroom, opens with students lined up as they perform the evergreen song Kajra Mohabbat Wala from the film Kismat.
In the video, girls, who are standing in a straight line, are performing their parts one by one and leaving the frame. Moments later, their teacher is also seen, who is in the queue, dancing to the tunes. Towards the end, all of them are seen on the dance floor.
The clip was shared by Manu Gulati, the teacher herself. As per her Twitter bio, Ms Gulati is “a proud Delhi government school teacher, a passionate mentor, a Fulbright Fellow and a PhD Scholar.”
For the caption, Ms Gulati drew inspiration from the song and wrote, “Dilli shehar ka saara meena bazaar leke.” She added, “Our imperfect dance moves on the last day of summer camp…Leading to some perfect moments of joy and togetherness.
दिल्ली शहर का सारा मीना बाज़ार ले के।☺️
