    It is a bit surprising this controversy occurred in India the home of Bollywood were in virtually every movie that is made are musicals that involve people singing and dancing. So the fact that these women started to dance in public square to music would not surprise them. Besides it is not as if they were twerking like these women.

      It’s hard to repress the innate nature of humans to want to dance, sing and have a good time that doesn’t involve rape, torture or murder.
