Coronavirus has disrupted the world order and put millions of lives at risk for over a year. While the virus is still there and we are witnessing its second wave, we now at least have a vaccination to take on it. Many around the world and India have taken the jab to protect themselves. And one Canadian-Sikh man celebrated his vaccination as no one else has.
Like Punjabis are known for celebrating everything at a grand level, Canadian Bhangra artist Gurdeep Pandher decided to celebrate his vaccination with a dance performance on a frozen lake in Canada. So, while most of us would fail to even walk in the snow, Gurdeep flaunted his amazing Bhangra skills with perfection. The video has gone viral and received almost 7 lakh views within 2 days of it being posted online. With over 28K likes and thousands of retweets, it’s surely being loved by netizens.
Sharing the performance, he informed about receiving his second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. “Then I went to a frozen lake in the lap of pure nature to dance Punjabi Bhangra on it for joy, hope, and positivity, which I’m dispatching to Canada and beyond for everyone’s good health," read his caption.
