At most times it’s difficult to get elbow room in a suburban train in Mumbai. But in a video that’s going viral thanks to India’s railway minister, a group of women is seen dancing the traditional Garba, in what looks like the ladies compartment of a suburban train.
In the undated footage shared by Goyal, the women are seen dancing inside a moving train, while one plays a song on a wireless speaker.
The minister tweeted the story and wrote: “Now this is an experience only Indian Railways can provide!”

This is not the first time a video of a Garba in a train has gone viral. Last year, during Navratri a video of group of women dancing in a train went viral.
However, it’s not just on trains. Passengers at Ahmedabad Airport too were surprised with a special Garba performance when staffers participated in a flash mob spreading festive vibe.
