As they say, music has no boundaries. True indeed. What’s more than a melodious song that carries a strong social message and spreads awareness in society.
Well, you will find all the above mentioned good things in a video where two Meghalaya cops are seen singing cheerfully and sending across a message that everyone needs to hear and imbibe in life. The video went viral immediately after it was published on the official social media handles of Meghalaya Police. And we suggest you look at it once.
The song was sung at an awareness programme organized by the South Garo Hills District Police as a way of sending an anti-drug message. The event was held at the auditorium of St. John Secondary School in Siju.
In the video, Probationer ABSI Joktan N Marak is seen playing the guitar, Circle Inspector Subir Sangma belting out the sing with Anthony Ch Momin, Deputy Superintendent of Police HQ South Garo Hills.
The song titled ‘Say no to drugs’ is in the Atong language, a local dialect in the district. The song along with a guitar is sure soothing to ears and is sending the right message in the internet space today.
The Meghalaya Police recently took the internet by storm with their hilarious tweet on drug peddlers selling Rasna powder in Shillong market by taking a cue from popular Netflix series Sacred Games.
This time too, tweeps couldn’t help but hail the department for using music to spread the message against doing drugs. Here are some of the reactions:
Truly said, such cops are indeed making the world a better place to live in.
