Among the recent violence, hate spewed at Ramjas College, Delhi University (DU) and the clashes between the student political parties– ABVP (Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad) and AISA (All India Students Association), something beautiful did spawn. What was it? A Ramjas-boy created a mash-up video of Befikre’s song, Nashe si chad gayi, Ed Sheeran’s number, Shape of You, to spread the message of peace and harmony.

Before being a member of ABVP, AISA or being an Indian or a Pakistani, we are human beings. Let us not fight and waste our life. We need to keep our political beliefs aside and learn to love.

Aniket Dhingra, a second year studentof the college was in the midst of all the commotion when the incident took place and even helped his friends to safety, making sure that no one was hurt. This incident stirred a whirlpool of emotions inside him and prompted him to make a video that spreads peace. “I saw all the violence, and at that very moment I decided that the message of love and peace should be conveyed to everyone through my music,” says Dhingra. “Before being a member of ABVP, AISA or being an Indian or a Pakistani, we are human beings. Let us not fight and waste our life. We need to keep our political beliefs aside and learn to love.”

An apolitical person, Dhingra wants thestudents of Delhi University learn from the incident and make it a personal mission to never let such a thing happen again. “I have performed at various colleges and most of my viewers are students too, I believe we are better than this. We were born with a heart to love and two hands to hug. And, as a student of Delhi University, I will continue to try and make life meaningful by spreading this message of love and peace through my music,” he adds.
