On a cold, chilly day with sub-zero temps, the things a person is most likely to rely on are a steaming hot cup of coffee, and a comfy blanket to keep them warm.
But for a Canadian Sikh man indulging in the traditional Punjabi bhangra dance, that too amidst snow, does the trick.
His unique style of beating the cold has led him to become an internet sensation, with his videos having gone viral.
Gurdeep Pandhar, a native of Yukon, Canada, has been regularly posting videos of himself, dancing outdoors in the snow, amidst temperatures ranging between -20 and -25 degrees Celsius, reported IANS.
His videos have inspired many, especially those who don't like excessive cold weather.
Recently, Pandhar again grabbed eyeballs for his bhangra dance video after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine, and the clip went viral on Twitter.
Last month in an interview with the local Canadian organisation CBC, Pandhar, a bhangra teacher by profession, said he only wanted to spread positivity through his videos.
"Once we wholeheartedly love doing something outdoors every day, I think cold winter months start to look delightful. I love winters from my core.
“I get excited during fall times when I know winter is coming soon, and every year I wish it would stay longer than it does.”
He reckoned the dance form’s high-energy moves was a reason he uses bhangra as a means to dance the cold away.
“Why do I feel like this? Because bhangra is my outdoor love in winters, and I enjoy doing it again and again," he said in the interview.
"Bhangra is a high-energy dance. It keeps me warm and positive. The dance movements create warm energy in the body, which keep the core heated even in sub-zero temperatures," he added.
