In the midst of the prevailing grief and sorrow surrounding the current global political landscape, finding a glimmer of hope that keeps us motivated can be challenging. However, amidst the uncertainties, there are individuals whose benevolent actions continue to radiate positivity. Witnessing the female students from Zindagi Trust, founded by Shehzad Roy, enthusiastically performing alongside Hasan Raheem to the tune of ‘Aisay Kaisay’ felt akin to the motivation we were longing for.
Appreciating the significance of arts and social sciences is a challenge not only confined to Pakistan but is a global concern. Against this societal backdrop, observing underprivileged female students showcasing their musical talents by playing the violin and guitar to the beats of the super loved song was genuinely heartening. It is empowering to witness these female students not only exploring their interests but also honing their skills.
Shehzad Roy has consistently proven to be a staunch advocate for female empowerment, never hesitating to stand up for what is right. Individuals like him, with their steadfast support for female education, serve as beacons of hope in our quest for a better world. The video capturing the collaborative performance of female students with Hasan Raheem is destined for our saved folder – a poignant reminder to revisit and savor the efforts of these good-hearted individuals making a positive impact.
We need to realize that this isn’t just a viral video, it’s representative of the transformative impact of education and the arts. It serves as a testament to the enduring power of music, advocacy, and the unwavering commitment to fostering positive change. It’s also representative of the power we have as privileged members of the community as well as our responsibility to continue making efforts to help those around us.
