Kerala medical students join ‘Rasputin dance challenge’ to protest hate

Days after two medical students from Kerala went viral for their after class dance video, more medical students have joined the Rasputin dance challenge.

As the number of Covid-19 cases continues to rise, doctors across the country are preparing for the second wave of the pandemic. Amid the grim situation, Thrissur Medical College students Janaki Omkumar and Naveen Razak tried to break the monotony and spread joy with their dance moves to Boney M’s 1978 euro-disco hit, “Rasputin.” .

While the video instantly went viral, it quickly took on a communal twist, sparking hatred as the two students belonged to different religious communities. To protest the hate, many medical students across Kerala have joined the challenge and are now posting videos while dancing to the energetic beats.
