Nagpur: Mahdi Bagh Youth Club (MBYC) on Sunday put Nagpur on the global map by representing the Orange City in the Dance For Kindness 2016.
Hundreds of volunteers performed the dance at Mahdi Bagh Colony to mark the World Kindness Day.
It was a happy coincidence for Nagpur that the dress code for the event was orange.
The main event started with a one minute silence for all the victims of world terror and hatred. This was much appreciated by the worldwide audiences through live streaming on Facebook.
A Freeze Mob wherein every person froze in a position portraying kindness followed. From helping a distressed child to simply giving hugs it showed how each person in their own little way could make the World a better place.
The finale came with the ‘frozen’ young performers exploding to life and dancing their hearts out with the rest of the world.
MBYC Nagpur and Pune participated in the “Dance for Kindness” event along more than 12,000 volunteers in more than 100 cities in over 50 countries. They danced at the same time, on the same song with the same steps.
MBYC President, Moin Malak said, “Kindness is the essence of humanity. We participated in this global movement to promote kindness especially at a time when there is so much hatred across the world. Kindness cuts across all differences. We hope that through this effort, we were able to spread this wonderful message from Nagpur, the heart of India, to the rest of the world.”
DFK is a global movement to celebrate differences and recognize that kindness is the common thread that unites all. This year, thousands of dancers and volunteers danced to spread the message of world peace, love, hope and world unity as a ray of hope with their dance.
Life Vest Inside, an NGO based in New York, in honour of World Kindness Week, globally organizes the initiative and Mahdi Bagh Youth Club (MBYC), an initiative of the Youth of Mahdi Bagh, that carries out philanthropic, sports and cultural activities through its various branches across the world, was honoured to have this wonderful opportunity to conduct the event in Nagpur.
The DFK Nagpur movement was covered live on Facebook.
