A video from Pathanamthitta district collector Dr. Divya S Iyer dancing with the students as part of a flash mob organized in connection with the MG University Youth Festival has gone viral.
The collector can be seen enjoying the dance space and sharing it with the students. The students were amazed at how quickly the collector picked up the steps and danced like one of them without any practice.
Pathanamthitta collector Dr. Divya S Iyer told DailyExpertNews DailyExpertNews, “The performance really brought me to my youth festival days. My parents and my son were there too. My parents’ presence really brought back the memories of my youth festival days.”
The collector said that the students performed with a lot of energy and that she just stuck with it. The collector also said that often forms of self-expression have been limited, but now that is slowly changing.
Many asked the collector after the performance why there was no hesitation in performing on this, to which she replied, “why am I expected to be hesitant.”
The collector confessed that she really wanted to dance more after the performance. And that was something she really enjoyed.
As many as 15 students from Pathanamthitta Catholic University took part in the flash mob organized in various parts of Pathanamthitta on March 30 and 31. The MG University Youth Festival will be held in Pathanamthitta district from April 1st to 7th.
On March 31 in the evening there was a light-on function and it was at this location that the students invited the collector to dance with them. It was a great experience for the students.
Anirudh B Kurup, one of the participants in the flash mob, told DailyExpertNews-DailyExpertNews: “We were really inspired, we thoroughly enjoyed it and felt a sense of accomplishment as she danced with us. She caught up with all our steps so quickly without any practice.”
The collector herself was an active participant in youth festivals during her student days and spoke with the students after the Dance about her events and her experience during cultural programs.
