Just yesterday, I heard ‘Shuru Kar’ from ‘Aiyaary’ and haven’t stopped listening since. Featuring Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh, it is the exact push you need to kick those excuses and start something new, something good. The song lyrics are super inspiring, and urge you to not wait for the world to change, but change your perspective first. Listen to it first thing in the morning, and you’ll have the energy you need to power through the day.
For me, this song is also a tribute to the hundreds of Indians whose initiatives are touching millions of lives today. Take Rajendra Singh, the ‘Water Man of India’ who brought dry rivers to life, or Kriti Tula of ‘Doodlage’ who recycles over 600 kg of fabric every month for her fashion brand, the work of changemakers in India adds to our country’s development the most.
The best thing about the song is that it breaks the notion that for changemaking, you need to do something big or something that will make all news headlines. It is a simple message: Start something in your own capacity, from wherever you are, because your story, no matter how big or small, can make a difference.
Do listen to ‘Shuru Kar’, and don’t forget to book your tickets for Aiyaary, releasing Feb 9! Leave a review of ‘Aiyaary’ on Youth Ki Awaaz, and if you have started something of your own, publish your story today.
