Hi, Misbah786 when I first saw this song on MTV I couldn't believe it! They are from the place where I was born and it made me feel happy and to just hear this song gave me goose bumps.

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on October 23, 2021:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read, John. Much appreciated. Yes, I have read Chitra Di's article on this song. In fact, I posted the link to her article in my comments as well. I think I can try to send it to the Niche site. The article got snipped by HP editors before because of the tweets I used but they didn't pick it up for any specific niche site. I am glad you enjoyed it.

Take care and have a great weekend.

Many blessings to you!

Misbah Sheikh (author) from — This Existence Is Only an Illusion on October 23, 2021:

Thank you so much, Bredz. Yes, these are some entertaining dance videos on the song Jerusalema. The most interesting thing is that the dances were performed by the police around the globe. I am also not sure about the niche site. I am glad you enjoyed it. I think we can learn to dance together. Lol!

Much Love!

Blessings to you, my dear friend.

A very interesting and unique article Misbah. I enjoyed reading it. What better way to bring a smile on people's faces than a dance number. And it is much more enjoyable when people from different regions participate with enthusiasm. The police force everywhere needed something like this after all the hardships they face in their professional life, during these stressful times.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on October 22, 2021:

This is great, Misbah. The videos are all feel good and it is commendable the police decided to be involved. I read about this dance previously through an article by Chitrangada. I am not sure if it would suit a niche site but you can always try.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on October 22, 2021:

Hey Misbah

This is one of those articles that leave you feeling good.

Thanks for sharing and I hope it continues to spread across the world.

We all need to have a little fun.

I'm not sure which niche site.

Maybe someone else will know.

Take care.

Hello, my dear friends.

I first published this article in February and updated it in June. This one receives a lot of traffic. Frequently, it comes from Facebook and Pinterest, but sometimes from Organic sources as well. I'm not sure why it gives me so many hits while being on discover. If someone could read this and tell me if it's worth submitting to a niche site, and if so, which one it should be, Is it an evergreen content?

Thank you so much!

Thanks a lot Linda,

I saw your comment for the first time,

Yesterday a friend of mine here posted the 7 moves of this song. Later I checked and found that the police also dancing on same beats, so I posted it here.

I wanted to post tweets as well but it doesn’t work here. So posted screenshots along with tweets and videos.

Blessings and regards
