Aisi Taisi Democracy is a satire collective in YouTube that brings out the political scenario of India in a satirical way and this time too it has come out with a video that speaks about Delhi’s air pollution with a twist. The song is sung by Indian Ocean’s Rahul Ram which is set to the tunes of the old classic sung by Kishore Kumar, Pal Pal Dil Ke Pass from the 1973 movie Blackmail.
The rendition of this old song is about the sorry tale of how pollution has been affecting people and how little people can do to protect themselves from this hazard.
Starting the show by taking a dig at how patriarchy was born in our society, he starts the pollution song by twisting the lyrics of the old classic.
The song starts with pal pal pollution mein, main rehta hun, lungs mein lag gayi jung, yeh kehta hun and then he mentions how every evening checking the Air Quality Index online has become a habit now.
Later in the song, he puts insights on how everyone breathing air in a polluted environment have invited breathing problems like Asthma.
He also calls out to everyone for blaming each other for the cause of air pollution, especially in Delhi. The lyrics reads, koi kehta hain gadi ke dhuye ki galti hain, koi kehta hain crop burning ka system guilty hain, sab ek duje pein bas, blame girate hain.
The song has hints of humour here and there that will leave you in splits but also make you realize how air pollution has changed our lifestyle to the core. Acting now is the need of the hour!
