Dancing In The Dark: Doctor Cheers Up COVID-19 Patients By Busting Moves In Med Gear

Sometimes all you can do is dance, dance, dance. That’s apparently the strategy of a physician in India who’s helping patients battle COVID-19. Dr. Arup Senapati of Silchar Medical College in Assam, India was captured on video busting some moves to entertain patients while wearing head-to-toe protective gear. He danced to the song “Ghungroo” from the Bollywood movie “War,” starring Hrithik Roshan.

Terrific spirit . 🕺🏻 https://t.co/AdBCarfCYO— Hrithik Roshan (@iHrithik) 十月 19, 2020 Sir , this is dr Arup Thanks a lot sir you are my hero , you are my inspiration since kaho na pyar hai .. i am not that much eligible to teach my inspiration , thanks a lot sir for your tweet and welcome to assam— Arup Senapati (@arupsena1234) 十月 19, 2020 Reaction elsewhere on Twitter was surprisingly mixed. Although some complained it was unprofessional, many were moved by both the dance and the physician’s desire to cheer up his patients: In this time of great collective grief, this doctor is the proof that human spirit is invincible.— Exploding Tree Singh, MD 🌊 (@LabyrinthWeaver) 十月 19, 2020 True charity: There is not a lot of joy in hospitalparticularly if one is elderly, away from family, and medical caretakers are dressed like astronauts. This is a rare surgeon who treats mind & spirit as well as the body.— Debra England (@debra_england) 十月 19, 2020 Your colleague is a massively talented dancer. If his dancing has brought joy to those suffering from COVID, than I thank him for the joy he has brought to all who he has performed for.— Joseph Morin 🇨🇦 (@joemorin73) 十月 20, 2020 India has more than 7 million cases of COVID-19. More than 115,000 people there have died since February.
