With the 2019 ICC World Cup in complete swing, not only are Virat Kohli and the Blue Men winning matches with their wonderful display of bowling and batting assaults, but at the pace of light the Indian culture is also taking over Europe’s roads.
Just after Sunday’s game against Aaron Finch’s Team Australia, a British man’s video, Agnus Denoon, selling Kolkata’s unique’ Jhal Muri’ in front of London’s Oval Stadium emerged and was loved by individuals from across the country and around the globe.
Another video went viral on Twitter and other social media platforms where hundreds of foreigners could be seen dancing to the popular Bhojpuri song ‘ Jila Top Lagelu.’ It appears that Bhojpuri songs are trendy not only in India but also in the UK. As quickly as the video was uploaded to the internet, the ever-living social media took over. Here it is:

A lot of supporters linked it to the continuing ICC Cricket World Cup as the video went viral. Soon, such tweets flooded Twitter. However, as the Indian Express article says, it was discovered to be ‘false‘ as the performance was not conducted after India’s win over Australia at London.
Contrary to the Indian Express report, the dance was component of a “Carnival of Cultures“ case to celebrate cultural diversity in Berlin from 7-10 June 2019. The festival culminated on Pentecost Sunday in a colorful road parade with music and dance.
Interestingly, the event also included some of the Indian groups, where some of the Bollywood and other peppy numbers were also performed. It does not seem that the song’s magic is restricted to India. This only goes on to demonstrate how much the Indian culture has become of impact over the previous few years. The fact that the locals were not only all right with the song but that they really enjoyed and moved to the beats, with their hands in the air, brimming with enthusiasm, only makes it better.
