After #DancingUncle, Kerala’s Elderly #DancingCouple Takes Internet by Storm!

In another viral video, a Kerala couple has set the internet on fire as they move to the rhythm of the Tamil hit ‘Ponmagal Vandaal,’ composed by A R Rahman for the Vijay-starrer Azhagiya Tamizh Magan.

Only last week, #DancingUncle Sanjeev Srivastava took the internet by storm as he grooved to the 1987 Govinda-Neelam classic ‘Aap Ke Aa Jane Se.’

Doing complete justice to his dancing idol Govinda, the 46-year-old Assistant Professor of Electronics at the Bhabha Engineering Research Institute in Bhopal, nailed every expression and quirky moves. If you haven’t watched the viral video yet, you must. Watch it here.

Age is just a number.. at 55.Most of you on FB know me as a wildlife and conservation photographer. When I started photography 30 years ago, I was a banker by profession and photography was just a hobby. Then things changed as I got bitten by the shutterbug and finally left my banking career to take up photography full time. But,.. when you turn your passion into a profession.. its rewarding, yet somehow you still need a hobby to enjoy life to the full.I never ever learned any kind of dance in my life… but I love dancing… as I start swinging every time the rhythm of music touches my soul…When my buddy from school days Hari and his wife Jayasree invited us to a pre-wedding party in connection with their daughter's marriage… my wife suggested a dance performance on that evening… among friends and buddies… Here it is… my first "bollywood dance performance".. the result of just a couple of days' practice under the guidance of Bipin… Thanks to all who cheered us…. at 55 years and Latha at 54…I shall reply to all your comments only after a month.. on why I posted this video on FB… until then please share and post your comments. It's important. I don't expect your comments like .."good performance ".. etc.. but sincere feedback on why we should come out of the shells we created.Feel free to share if you agree fully with our view… Balan & Latha

The video was posted last year and was picked up by netizens a few days ago.

In his Facebook post, Balan wrote a heartwarming message, “Age is just a number.. at 55. Most of you on Facebook know me as a wildlife and conservation photographer. When I started photography 30 years ago, I was a banker by profession and photography was just a hobby. Then things changed as I got bitten by the shutterbug and finally left my banking career to take up photography full time.

But when you turn your passion into a profession.. its rewarding, yet somehow you still need a hobby to enjoy life to the full.
I never ever learned any kind of dance in my life. But I love dancing. As I start swinging every time the rhythm of music touches my soul.
When my buddy from school days Hari and his wife Jayasree invited us to a pre-wedding party in connection with their daughter’s marriage, my wife suggested a dance performance on that evening among friends.
Here it is, my first Bollywood dance performance, the result of just a couple of days’ practice under the guidance of Bipin. Thanks to all who cheered us….at 55 years and Latha at 54…
I shall reply to all your comments only after a month.. on why I posted this video on FB… until then please share and post your comments. It’s important. I don’t expect your comments like ‘good performance’ etc. but sincere feedback on why we should come out of the shells we created.
