People complain that social media and busy lifestyle have drained out all the romance in life. Break-ups, tussle and fighting have become de rigueur and genuine love has become a rare entity. But it seems that our elder generation is showing us the way, how it is done and how to be in love forever.

Remember the Notebook themed photo shoot of the elderly couple that awed people all over the world? Or the dance off between a senior couple in a metro? All have reassured us and made us believe — love is beautiful and age is no bar.

Recently, a video of an elderly couple enjoying themselves while dancing has gone viral and it is melting hearts on the Internet. The video posted by a Facebook user Madhuri Prativadi shows a senior lady in a yellow sari and gajra twirling happily with her partner dressed in formals.

The duo is dancing to the ’80s hit song ‘Footloose’ by Kenny Loggins, and it is an irresistible song not to dance to. The couple seems to be quite oblivious of the people around them, enjoying every beat. Though it might look as a plain dancing routine, but on closer look one may spot the basic movements of Salsa and we must say they really mastered their ‘El Paso 70’ move. If you don’t believe us watch any Youtube video of the move and confirm.

Though where exactly the couple is dancing is not clear but they can be seen dancing along many other pairs so it could be any dance party or a class. Since November 14, when the video was posted it has over 1 million views and shared more than 17,000 times, at the time of writing.
