We have business tycoon Anand Mahindra to thank for one of the best videos we have seen this Navratri - that of police officers in New York doing the garba. Time and again, Mr Mahindra has dipped into what he calls his WhatsApp wonder box to give us wonderfully entertaining videos, and this time was no different. In a tweet posted about half an hour ago, he shared a delightful clip of New York cops joining a group of women and dancing with them.
"Given the number of garba videos I've posted I risk having my name changed to Anand Garbindra," he joked. "But I can't resist sharing this classic I received now in my #whatsappwonderbox."
According to Mr Mahindra, the clip was filmed in New York where cops were meant to shut down the late-night revelry but instead decided to join in!
The video shows them showing off their garba moves with a huge crowd cheering them on and dancing with them.
Watch the delightful video below:
