As India and Pakistan celebrate their respective Independence Days, it gets harder to not acknowledge the tense relationship between the two neighbours. Both the nations have been at odds with one another for decades now and the situation does not seem to be improving either. Yet, every now and then, a singular act extends a ray of hope that may lead us to a harmonious path. Amid all the unpleasantness and the friction, there happen to exist common folk who are just about done with the hatred boiling between India and Pakistan.
On 70 years of Independence, a group named Voice of Ram unified artists from both India and Pakistan in a beautiful mash-up of both our national anthems that is sure to give you goosebumps. Beginning with Pakistan’s national anthem, Qaumi Taranah also known as Pak Sarzamin, the video titled ‘Peace Anthem’ slowly shifts to India’s Jana Gana Mana.
The video has received a lot of positive responses from people in both countries proving once again that peace is not off the table. With over 28,000 views, comments under the ‘Peace Anthem’ video are mostly heartwarming. “As a Pakistani I’m here because i was excited to hear my fellow countrymen recite Indian national Anthem. Salam From Pakistan and Vande Matarm [sic]” says one Youtuber. “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace! Be the peace you seek! Pakistan Zindabad! Jai Hind! from a fellow Paksitani,” writes another.

Voice of Ram is a group led by Ram Subramanian that describes itself as a collective of “collective of social commentators, innovators, political strategists, ad-filmmakers, digital marketing experts, movement creators and peace activists.” This is the same group that shared a video of Indians singing the Pakistani national anthem that went viral on Sunday.
