The stories of the Good Samaritans have emerged as a ray of hope and positivity in these bleak times. Throughout her story, some of these real-life superheroes are highlighted by Bollywood actor Rajkummar Rao, who recited a moving Hindi poem written as part of the eight-part Spotify series written by lyricist Swanand Kirkire. The limited edition original audio and video series titled ‘Ruk Jaana Nahi’ highlights the stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things – from Frontline staff to Doctors. He launched the teaser for the first episode last week, and a subsequent original podcast will come along similar lines.
“Of course, there are great organizations that are doing a great job for COVID’s relief, but I was deeply moved by the strong will and kindness of an ordinary man. I noticed the stories of people helping others for no reason and no need. they were stories that needed to be told, to remember their strength and sacrifices, and that we are not alone in this fight against the Pandemic. Help me share these stories of hope with more audiences and I was very impressed with the initiative, ”Rao said.
Asked about his favorite line from a two-minute recital of Kirkire’s poem, Rao honestly says, “I really can’t pick a line when I read Mr. Swanand’s poem, the words that moved me so much, the line echoed with me, I knew I had to be on the board. Swanand Sir’s words are so beautiful, I feel honored to recite them all on the screen. “
The TV series focuses on the sacrifices they make to help young India and other people in need.
In the coming weeks, exciting video and audio functions will give listeners a life of local Heroes, including a doctor who chose duty over personal loss; Stories of those who have prepared meals for those in need; Individuals who try to distribute masks (and smiles); Those with limited resources, but still providing support on their own account; and young Indians who have used their technology to connect patients with medical facilities.
According to Spotify, there have been scenes of loss, despair and heartbreak in our homes and across the country. But among the Chaos, if there’s one thing that has grown faster than the Pandemic, it’s Humanity. We have been faceless strangers, we have tried to help those who needed resources; we have also been at the end of that kindness when our loved ones were suffering.
The audio streaming giant says these selfless acts of kindness will be shared through this limited series of videos and audio.
Finally, when asked what he thought about empathy during the Pandemic, Rao says: “It is important to help and support those around us and come together as a community. The best way to deal with our shared difficult situation is to do it.
“We are experiencing times like this that require us all to be in solidarity. These are difficult times, but we can only achieve this through hope, resilience and perseverance.”
