The elections seem to have left Delhi in a spot, and  Delhi-based singer Rabbi Shergill hopes the situation clears in the city’s best interests soon enough.   The 39-year-old Bullah Ki Jaana singer is thrilled with the overwhelming response that  young people here have shown to create change. He says, “I am thrilled! It’s a really crucial battle, we have someone who has shown India the new face of politics. I am excited,” says Rabbi, who supports the Aam Aadmi Party.

 The Sufi singer feels that India as a country will only go ahead if people agree upon bringing about positive changes unanimously. “See, we belong to a community and thus we should always think that ‘what is good for me is good for them’ or ‘what is good for them is good for me’,” says Rabbi.

He thinks the Capital has the potential to become one of the best cities in the world. “Delhi has all the ingredients to become the best city. It’s just that we are very disconnected right now because of various reasons. The city is not even half as bad as any other city in the world. So I kind of have big hopes from it.”

Rabbi, who recently performed at the Jack and Jones  All Star Jam, also has a message for the youth. He says, “I wish the youth use their minds proactively. Without them, this country cannot go forward and hence they should always be well-informed and proactive.”

Born Gurpreet Singh Shergill, the Guru Harkrishan Public School and Khalsa College alumnus was a prominent part of the pre-poll rallies this year, spreading the message of the importance of youth participation in politics, and the power of a collective conscience to bring about social change.
