Indian companies aren’t always the staid, boring workplaces they are made out to be. When the employees are done filling in their timesheets and calculating their tax savings from their latest batch of Sodexos, they can be a fun, interesting lot. When the Flash Mob craze hit the world, Indian companies weren’t far behind, and dished out their own, desi versions. Here are the 10 best flash mobs that were seen on the Indian corporate scene.
1. Wipro, Kochi
This flash mob has it all. From some good ol’ fashioned dancing on tables, to more complex graceful formations, to lots of acrobatics towards the end, these young IT guns light up their their cafeteria. All to some very tasteful music, dominated by the tunes of A. R. Rahman.
2. Capgemini, Mumbai
This flash mob was organized to promote their annual cultural event, Jashn. And it was a roaring success, with crowds thronging to the cafeteria to watch it, and also joining in!
3. Infosys, Chandigarh
This flash mob, that took place right outside the main campus, had a distinctive Punjabi touch, with a little Bhangra sequence thrown in!
4. Infosys, Pune
This flash mob broke from the medley format and danced to just one song – Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire.
5. Microsoft, Hyderabad
This flash mob passed by quite uneventfully, without any crashes.
6. Ernst & Young, Pune
This is the only flashmob on our list that has people dancing in suits and ties. You can take a person out of finance, but you can’t take finance out of a person..
7. Opera Mini, Noida
Opera Mini blows the competition of the water with its flash mob to celebrate 50 million Indian users. It features matching T-Shirts, giant Indian flags, and the company’s CEO being wheeled into the festivities on a cycle rickshaw. Take a look at the grand daddy of all Indian corporate flash mobs.
8. Cognizant, Bangalore
This was more of a dance extravaganza than a flash mob but the freshers of Cognizant surely know how to make the best of it.
9. TCS, Bangalore
The employees of TCS Bangalore got served more than their regular fare at the office cafe with this flash mob.
10. Tech Mahindra, Bombay
Some jaw-dropping acrobatics were added on to a regular flash mob.
