Kolaveri Di Flash Mob in Mumbai

Source: various:

Mumbai witnessed another awesome Flash Mob. This time around it was the Kolaveri Di fever creating magic in Bombay. On Wednesday, 21st of December, a flash mob organized by Mumbai Mirror and led by Kolaveri sensation Dhanush brought the entire Churchgate station to a standstill for about 10 minutes.

It was supposed to a flash mob like the one at CST on November 27 but the crowd at Churchgate went berserk after Tamil actor and singer Dhanush’s four-minute performance of the latest craze Kolaveri Di.

Wednesday being a working day, the station was crowded as usual when Dhanush arrived. There was mass hysteria as Dhanush starting singing and more than 100 youngsters joined him in the dance.

But instead of dispersing after Dhanush left, youngsters continued to dance in groups. This added to the chaos on the platform teeming with people and the police swing into action to drive away the dancers.

The reaction of the crowd left the Tamil actor stunned. “I’m overwhelmed by the response, and by the power of people coming together to sing the song. I first experienced stardom eight years ago when I made it big in Tamil films. I am living it all over again in this second innings, thanks to Mumbai Mirror. It truly feels wonderful,” Dhanush said. In the four weeks since the video went viral, it has already received 25,965,856 hits on YouTube and has inspired a slew of versions in different languages across India (and one in Pakistan).

Watch this space for the official video that will be out later today. In the meantime, you can watch this clip from Times Now.

Another video clip ...

Next stop for Dhanush was the Oval Maidan, where - with neither a loudspeaker nor a sound system in sight - he got almost 400 people to sing and dance along with him. He had finally found some space to move, and he didn’t disappoint his fans who had followed him to the Oval from Churchgate.

“My voice has gone for a toss, but it doesn’t matter. What does is that I connected with the youth and their voice. It felt amazing to hear all of them scream the song back at me. Nothing could top the sound of all our voices coming together.”

There are several versions of the original Kolaveri Di song on - » Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam’s son Nevaan Nigam has made a kiddie version of Kolaveri Di. Nevaan, however, ask for a glass of milk instead of scotch

» KOLAVERI DI - NEW Big B Version By Dhanush

» There is also an Alvin and the Chipmunks version of the song, with three female chipmunks that will leave you in peals of laughter

» If the viral video Dhokla Spiderman amused you, try the Gujarati Kolaveri, or shall we say, Why this chokri kharchaa di?

» A Chinese guy singing Kolvari? Di is replaced by Da and Tamil by English even as the glass of scotch is replaced by a knife…

Extraordinary Blasting - Sehwag Betters Tendulkar's ODI Highest Runs Record

Source: various:

Sehwag created history today by smashing the West Indies bowlers all around the fence in the 4th ODI. In the process he not only demolished the West Indies single handedly but also bettered Sachin Tendulkar's Highest Individual batting record in ODI. Sehwag scored 219 runs off just 149 balls. He is only the second batsman in the world to go past 200 runs in an ODI.

Sachin Tendulkar, the Master Blaster, was the first to amass 200 runs in an ODI in Feb 2010. Sachin Tendulkar - The Batting God!

It took nearly four decades for a batsman to score the first double-century in one-day international cricket but less than two years for the second.

Sehwag's performance led India to 418 for 5, their highest ODI total, and sealed victory in the five-match series against West Indies. It was an innings characteristic of Sehwag's approach to batting. He went to 50 off 41 balls, to 100 off 69 balls, to 150 off 112 and past 200 off 140. The record was broken with a withering cut that sped to the backward-point boundary, and he celebrated with an aggressive fist-pump before breaking into a smile.

The Stand-in captain admitted that he never expected to score a double hundred although the thought only crossed his mind during the batting Powerplays. “I never expected to score a double hundred. While opening the innings, I told Gautam Gambhir that if we can show some patience on this track, we will be in for a big one as the wicket is a good one. The outfield is fantastic and the distance of the boundary is only 50 yards.

“It was only after the batting powerplay started, I felt that I could reach double hundred. Also when Sammy dropped me (at 170), I knew that God was with me,” Sehwag stated.

"I am very happy for Viru. It is even more satisfying that an Indian has broken my record." Sachin Tendulkar, the only other batsman to have hit an ODI double-ton to date
