    In order to celebrate the UN's International Day Of Peace on September 21, hundreds of people from all around the world spontaneously burst into flash mobs in their respective countries.

    Along with every other country, India's participants performed a flash mob based on the Zouk dance form, native to Brazil and known worldwide as the "dance of love." They used the same song and choreography as all those partaking worldwide.
