Exclusive Interview of Rohayl Varind, Founder of Wall of Humanity



Exclusive Interview of Rohayl Varind, Founder of Wall of Humanity

Rohayl Varind – Founder of Wall of Humanity: The concept of ‘Wall of Humanity’ is to make a simple public wall transform into a social welfare center. It was launched in February 2016 with a sole purpose to win the war against poverty & hunger. Through this wall every week hundreds of people get free food, free ration, free medical checkup, free medicines, free clothes, free shoes etc. It is an endeavor par excellence towards alleviating our species and taking humanity one step further to being called ‘Best of Creations’.

Times of youth: We want to know more about “Wall of Humanity”. Can you please explain in detail?

Rohayl Varind: Wall of Humanity is not just any other wall; it’s a solemn dream. A dream which was perceived by me as I wanted to feed and help poor of my species. I visioned a welfare center but due to lack of support and funds, it remained unachieved for several years.

I wanted to start something different yet hassle-free, and much less complicated in order to be easily replicated. An idea that would never require spending millions over cliché welfare center constructions or any other pompous affairs for that matter. So he created a simple yet effective welfare wall instead, which would be open to all, day or night. A place where the weaker sections of the city would get free clothes, free shoes, free cooked food, household items, books, free medical checkup, free education and many more daily amenities without having to beg or plead for any of it to anyone ever.

It was only a crude idea for which at first I sought the help of The Almighty, but never did I expect it to be so successful that it would not just remain functional for so long, but also thrive and flourish at the hands of so many now permanent team members & volunteers who dedicate their precious time & energy in this mission for upbringing of humanity without desiring or expecting any worldly gains.

Since February 2016 since the ‘Wall of Humanity’ team has been actively providing cooked food, clothes, books, household items like wheat, rice, oil etc. and medical checkup to, people of Faisalabad, all for free. Moreover, it is open for the donors 24×7 to donate their clothes, shoes, books, toys, household items or anything useful for that matter that the poor and underprivileged ones can take from the wall. We also organize a proper donation activity once a week in which we donate things in large bulks. We have started this war against, poverty and we’ll fight this war till our last breath. Alhamdullilah, Faisalabad has supported this well and given an amazing response by volunteering and donating. Our team is working day in and day out to make this ‘Wall of Humanity’ a successful and optimistic model which every country, every city, every NGO, can follow someday in order to eliminate the crises that major portion of mankind suffers from today. Let’s hope that soon we can proudly say that we contributed enough to make our future generations see a much better world than today.

Despite being the brainchild of just one person, this wall is now owned by several thousands of countrymen living in Pakistan & worldwide. This has only been possible because of Almighty Allah’s incessant help and constant perseverance of our team, volunteers & donors. We are grateful for all those who supported us so far and hope for more graciousness in future from more of our privileged kind.

Times of youth: How sustainable is your project over the long term? Outline potential challenges, strategies, and development.

Rohayl Varind: Our project ‘Wall of Humanity’ has the advantage of being novel as well as sustainable, since we chalked it out to be the most important factor to be upheld before its launch. The concept is very simple; we made “Wall of Humanity” a common center or you can say a welfare center which is always open for humanity.

Generous donors as well as underprivileged people of Faisalabad, Pakistan could visit the wall as per their wishes in the daytime and share and gain happiness without any barriers or formalities. We have built four such ‘walls’ so far at prime locations of Faisalabad which are easily accessible to all.

Donors can leave viable food items, ration, clothes, shoes, books etc. at our ‘Wall of Humanity’ and underprivileged ones can choose the items of necessity as available according to their need within minutes of donation. Owing to its simplicity, ‘Wall of Humanity’ has now become the hope of thousands of needy city mates living in Faisalabad.

Currently, by the grace of Almighty, we have not yet faced any challenges, hurdles or obstacles of any kind owing to its simple concept and impeccable implementation by generous volunteers. So far we have humbly served around 28,000 people since its launch in February 2016 and we are planning to serve and help more than 250,000 Pakistanis by the end of 2017. For this purpose, we have planned to partner with several NGOs & welfare organizations so that they can build more of such walls uniformly in their own city or area. We plan to rescue from poverty and hunger every third world country by the means of ‘Wall of Humanity’ which shall then be managed by locals of that city or area.

Moreover, we plan to erect more such ‘Walls’ at different cities in our country soon in order to provide everyone a fair chance to serve and receive benefits from our project. We are also planning to make ‘mobile version’ of our ‘Wall of Humanity’ in different slums & underprivileged areas which are usually hard to access for our government, NGOs or welfare organizations.

Apart from all this, we are creating awareness through national news channels, social media pages etc. The project and idea is overall a very sustainable one & easy to replicate anywhere and everywhere across the globe if we could spread awareness righteously

Times of youth: What is the youth component of your project (project management, target group, partners, etc)

Rohayl Varind: According to several researches and stats its proven that youth consist of around 65% of Pakistan’s total population which means without the support of our youngsters it would be difficult or to be more specific it would be rather impossible for any initiative, attempt, movement or project to succeed or reach its desired results.

Wall of Humanity has itself been founded & head by a 21-year-old which is me. Apart from that our majority supporters comprise of the youth of Faisalabad and Pakistan for all of our work i.e. from being a donor or taking part in volunteer work or even for the promotion of our cause. Without their humble help, we could not have achieved our best!

Times of youth: What are the unique value & local impact of your project?

Rohayl Varind: The unique way by which ‘Wall of Humanity’ is serving people has hardly been witnessed in the history of any part of the World. We are working on streets for the poor people living on those same streets. We provide food, ration, clothes, shoes, medical checkup, and medicines at a simple wall which are built on different streets of Faisalabad and accessible to every person.

Since the launch of Wall of Humanity, we have served around 25,000 underprivileged people of our city who would otherwise commit suicide due to lack of basic necessities or gets involved in immoral and illegal activities. But with the implementation of this project, by the grace of Almighty Allah, we have achieved hundreds of success stories. Many people have recovered from gruesome diseases by receiving free medical checkup & free medicines from our acclaimed & renowned doctors at our ‘Wall of Humanity’.

Widows & orphans have received several employment opportunities so that they can be independent and feed their family and themselves on their own. No words can describe the elation we conquered. It is an unbelievable feeling! With ‘Wall of Humanity’ at their disposal, people do not need to beg on streets or be commercial sex workers or even resort to crimes to attain daily needs. We are providing all basic and necessary goods that someone needs to live. Even the elderly who have been estranged from their own children do not need to beg or commit suicide just because they are too old to earn or to be employed. We have vowed to provide them food for at least a week.

For our humble work, we have been featured and interviewed by several leading news channels of Pakistan as well as having featured in their headlines of newspapers too. Many local NGO’s, youth and welfare organizations are taking inspiration from our work & have started something on similar grounds for the community & society thereby playing a vital role in uplifting humanity. We aim with sincere hearts to reach out to everyone in need across the globe in near future and play our modest role as humans for the destitute ones of our kind.

Times of youth: What are your project goals in the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Which local problem is your project solving?

Rohayl Varind: The prime focus of Wall of Humanity is on first 3 goals of UN Sustainable Development
Our first goal is to End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition so that we could provide free food, free ration bags, free milk and other healthy nutritional foods to underprivileged people of Faisalabad every week through our Wall of Humanity.

Secondly end poverty in all its forms everywhere is one of our main goal and prime objective as well as an inspiration for our organization name, “War Against Poverty”. Clearing poverty from the face of the world is the primary motive of starting Wall of Humanity. To achieve this, we are creating employment opportunities for the widows and orphans of our city Faisalabad. We collect data at our Wall of Humanity of these orphans and windows which are poverty stricken and can not earn their living. After due verification, we provide them with free sewing machines or anything of which they know the skill of, to make them self-employed and assist thereby to earn their living themselves without having to beg.

Moreover, we are also trying to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages as our charitable doctors at Wall of Humanity try their best to provide quality treatment as well as free medicines to the underprivileged people of Faisalabad. We have so far achieved 100% cure rates of several diseases such as Dengue, Malaria, Hepatitis etc. of which we had undertaken treatment. We are also planning to organize different seminars at Wall of Humanity for educating the masses regarding HIV/AIDS, malaria and other common regional diseases to create awareness amongst our community.

The ‘Wall of Humanity’ is thus extremely in sync with the latest SDGs and would honestly serve a higher purpose in near future for the impoverished and needy fellows of our species, thereby creating equal opportunities and better lifestyles for thousands of people across the globe. We hope to thereby achieve a much better world then!

Times of youth: Your initiative is going Viral in India as well. What you have to say about it?

Rohayl Varind: From the start of February 2016, Our team is working day in and day out to make this ‘Wall of Humanity’ a successful and optimistic model which every country, every city, every NGO, can follow someday in order to eliminate the crises that major portion of mankind suffers from today. Let’s hope that soon we can proudly say that we contributed enough to make our future generations see a much better world than today. I am not disappointed that Indians are using our model and our initiative name but not giving us credits or mentioning about us. We wanted this model to spread and this is spreading all over the world and we are really happy that after many months our model & idea is being replicated and thousands of people are getting benefits from it.

Exclusive Interviews

Exclusive Interview of Fatima Lodhi



Exclusive Interview of Fatima Lodhi on Times of Youth

I am a change activist, founder of “Dark is Divine”, Chairperson Women Empowerment of Rotaract District 3272 and Asia’s youngest anti-colorism and diversity advocate. –  Fatima Lodhi

For the past 5 years, I am not only working for the basic rights, inclusion and social acceptance of women with disabilities, but also those without disabilities. Back in 2013, I continued my struggle as an advocate of “Diversity”, to redefine the unrealistic concepts of beauty and by driving people out of the inferiority complexes. I have been doing so by conducting training’s and customized sessions, “The Skin We Live In”, for people belonging to different age brackets and backgrounds.

I have been a TEDxSpeaker thrice and I am the first Pakistani who has taken a bold stand against ‘Colorism’ & ‘Perfect Body Image’ notion by launching “Dark is Divine”- the first anti-colorism campaign from Pakistan, working on a global level, which aims to redefine the unrealistic standards of beauty that have been set by the society, by countering colorism & ‘Perfect Body Image Syndrome’.

I have developed Pakistan’s first manual on “Diversity” and have also written stories for kids on the same topic. My efforts were recognized as my name was recently added to the list of “Women Rights Activist” on Wikipedia along with many strong women across the world. I have also received “Women Excellency Award”, “Young Women Leader’s Award” and have been interviewed by and featured in different newspapers & magazines across the globe in appreciation and for the propagation of my work under “Dark is Divine”. Being an anti-colorism and diversity advocate, I have been featured in newspapers with Nandita Das, an Indian Bollywood actress. I was also selected as “Woman of The Week” by a U.K based Radio.

Times of Youth: Could you define ‘colorism’ for our readers? And what exactly is ‘pigmentocracy’?

Colorism is one of the words for a kind of discrimination that exists where light skin color is given more preference, is considered appealing and is more acceptable as compared to dark skin color. Colorism exists within the same race.

Whereas the word pigmentocracy is concerned, it defines the societies in which wealth and social status are judged by the skin color. There are many pigmentocracies across the globe, which have some stereotyped characteristic that claims that the light-skinned people have the uppermost social status. Whereas the brown-skinned, has middle positions, and lastly the black-skinned are at the lowest of the social ladder.

Times of Youth: How does it feel to be the first female from your country to support this cause?

It feels really great to be the first person who has taken a bold stand against Colorism by launching a proper anti-colorism campaign which is not only working in Pakistan but also across the globe!

Times of Youth: ‘Dark is Divine’, being your initiative against colorism, has been lauded well so far. Could elaborate more on its objectives and achievements?

Dark is Divine is the first anti-colorism campaign from Pakistan, working globally through a local action. A campaign that aims to transform Asia into a region where dark skin color is embraced with good grace as light-skin color, to the point where the skin color, body shape & body size of a woman ultimately have no importance. The campaign envisions a society in which equal treatment is given to everyone, irrespective of the color of their skin, size, and shape of their bodies & height, by redefining the so-called Beauty standards and the ‘Perfect body image’ that have been defined biasedly by the society.

Dark Is Divine believes that beauty cream advertisements unfairly assert that if women are light-skinned, they are flourishing. These advertisements teach young girls that their self-confidence and success depends on the structure, shape, and height of their bodies and especially on the lightness of their skin. Such unfair advertisements are responsible for emphasizing negative stereotypes, creating social inequalities and inferiority complexes that lead to depression and segregation from society. Instead, Dark is Divine celebrates the full spectrum of beauty.

Dark Is Divine aims to free the society of the mindset that beauty is color, shape & size bound. We do this by conducting sessions on diversity at the school level in order to help the younger generations internalize the idea that discrimination on the basis of skin color or personal appearance is morally wrong. Dark Is Divine has already conducted many awareness sessions through print and electronic media to spread awareness of the existence of colorism and Perfect Body Syndrome and to acknowledge that we, as a society, have to confront colorism honestly to eradicate it completely. Dark is Divine now has its own manual on “Diversity” and “Positive Body Image”.

Times of Youth:  So, what are your current endeavors with regards to activism?

We are conducting training sessions on “Inclusive Education” & “Diversity”.

Times of Youth: You were given the honor to speak about your cause at TEDx. Tell us more about it and how that went.

I have spoken thrice, at TEDx, and it has been an amazing experience. The response I received was tremendous and overwhelming. People, especially girls, could relate to the story that I shared during the Talk about “Dark is Divine”.

Q) Things we’d like to know about you-

  • The most native thing about you: My Smile
  • What makes you extremely happy? Making everyone feel beautiful!
  • Best de-stressor: Chocolates
  • If you could change one thing about yourself, it would be: Punctuality.
  • Times of Youth: At the end of it all, what is your real goal in life in terms of career?

I believe I don’t need any degree or any specific post for bringing a change that I want to bring; I want to make this world an accommodating place where respect for all is the must.

Times of Youth: Of all the awards you received so far, which has been the best and your biggest moment of pride?

The moment I got to know that my name was added in the List of Women Rights activists on Wikipedia, as the first Pakistani to address Colorism. In that list, I was the only activist after Malala Yousafzai under the heading of Pakistan! This achievement was more important than any other award for me!

Times of Youth: Considering the massive amount of time and efforts you put in, has your family been supportive of all the social work you do?

Luckily, I have got a very supportive family who is always there for me, especially when it comes to all my social work. I remember discussing the campaign with my parents, before launching it and they were all supportive and said “Go ahead”; one interesting thing that I would like to add over here is that the name “Dark is Divine” was actually suggested by my father!

Times of Youth: Do tell us one incident which totally changed your life/perspective.

I remember the day I was giving an interview regarding my campaign “Dark is Divine” to a state channel and there I also shared my story of discrimination that how I was discriminated on the basis of my skin color and when I was done with the interview, I received a text message from an old friend of mine, saying that today I feel embarrassed to call you my friend, I can’t even tell anyone that you are my friend, and its only because you made fun of yourself and those around by sharing your story of discrimination on a state television. That day I realize that this is the reason why there are so many stories that are still untold because we don’t support our people, our girls!

Q) What is the first word that comes to your mind when you read the following-

  • Color: Diversity
  • Parents: Love
  • Study: Basics
  • Youth: Enthusiasts
  • Nation: Pride
  • Life: Goes on…

Times of Youth: According to you, what changes or other implementations should be made regarding women empowerment across the globe to truly empower women?

According to me “Empowerment” is such a vague term and is somehow misunderstood throughout the globe. When we talk about empowerment, we first need to realize that the same techniques of empowerment cannot be implemented on all the women. The notion of Empowerment differs from one society to another, from one woman to another. Empowerment to a woman who has faced a lot of discrimination throughout her life would be totally a different thing as compared to the woman who has not faced even a single problem throughout her life. If we start realizing this, the change would be witnessed there and then!

Times of Youth: We honestly believe that you have the power to bring a rational change in the world. If given a chance, what would you like to do to make this world place a better place?

If I get a chance, I would make sure that “Celebrating Diversity” becomes part of our cultures which would then be compulsory for us to practice.

Times of Youth: Any message to the youth via Times Of Youth?

Beauty comes in no predefined shade, shape or size!

Exclusive Interview of Simone Conti



Exclusive Interview of Simone Conti

Simone Conti: I am a 22-year-old guy and I’ve always lived in Padua, an Italian city near Venice. I never undertook art studies, I’ve studied in Scientific high school and after I had to choose who I wanted to be, so I tried the test of entry to the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, after being admitted, I decided to take the road of design, without leaving my passion for drawing that I had since I was a child. In June 2014, however, I could not wait any longer and decided to paint and since then I have not stopped. In my work, I try to improve the quality of life around me, making the other person happier with my paintings.

In fact, before I finish the paintings I ask the subject to finish the work with one final brush stroke made by her/him. In my work I use mainly primary colors, for everyone, because we are all equal, then I wonder what color is the soul of who I paint, and there the people are extremely precise (for example, they not just say green, but say green forest, green leaf etc.), so in the final brush stroke they use them, because if the portrait is beautiful, its thankfully due to the subject, to the person him/herself. In fact, if the people wouldn’t exist all this beauty wouldn’t be around us.

Times of Youth: What led you to choose Art faculty as a career?

Simone Conti: Art is not a career choice, you do not choose to be an artist, you are an artist, as doctors, engineers, lawyers etc. It’s stronger than you, it’s like breathing, if you do not, you are in apnea, and you can’t breathe in apnea.

Times of Youth: What style of artistry do you rather prefer? 

Simone Conti: The style that most fascinates me is painting, I find it the most expressive and immediate for my soul to find a voice. But there is no denying that in the future I can dedicate myself also to sculpture, photography, performance etc.

Times of Youth: Which was your first most praised piece of art that you still cherish?

Simone Conti: Certainly the picture of Charlie Chaplin, that is one of the first I made. I remember the excitement I had while I was doing it when you want exactly that shade of color for that perimeter in that position on the canvas. I wanted it in that way and so it came, although I must say that “Jimi” is another of my favorite paintings I made, lots of people said to me that the portrait looks like me especially the hair, eyes, lips. I do not know if it’s true, but it is certain that every time I paint, I leave a part of my heart in them, inevitably.

Times of Youth: What has been your biggest moment of pride?

Simone Conti: My greatest moment of pride? Well, I’ve had many, since I had the first exhibition to CSO Pedro when I was called to the Sherwood Festival, and at my last shows, I’ve done in the gallery in London. I could say that more than a moment is a time of pride.

Times of Youth: Has your family been supportive of your choice of career path? 

Simone Conti: Yes, without any doubt.

Times of Youth: Do tell us one incident which totally changed your life/perspective.

Simone Conti: There haven’t been incidents fortunately yet.

Times of Youth: How would you describe your art style in one sentence?

Simone Conti: The Art is you.

Times of Youth: What makes your day? What spoils it?

Simone Conti: During my day I spend a lot of time observing people and places, I feel them. I do not seek inspiration, I am totally immersed in it because it comes from the common things the truly great beauty until I am full and then bursting out of my hands to pour onto a canvas.

Times of Youth: Have you ever stepped out of your comfort zone and discovered a whole new genre of art? How did it turn out?

Simone Conti: I love art and I watch a lot both past and contemporary artists and their works, on what they do but also on what they want to express that it is much more important.

Times of Youth: What is your most important artist tool? Is there something you can’t live without in your studio or while working?

Simone Conti: The most important tool is certainly the emotion, the heart, that you can never miss. I saw photos of artists who paint even without hands or arms, using their mouth, because when you have the feeling that you want to express it already has everything. But if you remove that feeling, you’ll be surrounded by dozens of pencils, crayons, colors and empty canvases that you’ll never be able to fill out your imagination.

Times of Youth: Do you have a favorite artist? If yes, what draws you to that person’s work? 

Simone Conti: My favorite artist is Amedeo Modigliani, a painter from Livorno who lived in Paris. His paintings and style that are unique and extraordinary, but I’m more fascinated by the poetry behind them, the romance in his paintings.

Times of Youth: If you were given one wish, what would it be?

Simone Conti: That everyone can feel beautiful and unique, as they really are, and may have the opportunity to make their dreams come true without fear because the only obstacle they may encounter are themselves. In doing so, I believe, everyone would be happy because they can do what they want and at the same time they can do it better, it would become a vicious circle.

Times of Youth: Considering your potential, we believe that you have the power to bring a rational change in the world using your skills. If given a chance, what would you like to do to make this world place a better place?

Simone Conti: Certainly, my greatest wish and my purpose in life are improving the quality of life around me, taking care of the happiness of others, valuing others, making them understand that they are as unique as the stars, as it is this moment and this interview.

Times of Youth: Do tell us how your admirers/fans can reach you to share their appreciation or feedback.

Simone Conti: People who like my pictures usually text me on Facebook, or they talk to me when they meet me around the city.

Times of Youth: Any advice you’d give to aspiring youngsters who want to be artists now or in the future? 

Simone Conti: Listen to yourself, always trust your instincts, because your mind is wise and knows what it wants. The real tool for creating something is your heart.

Exclusive Interview of Bhuvan Bam (BB Ki Vines)



Exclusive Interview of Bhuvan Bam (BB Ki Vines)

Bhuvan Bam: I am Bhuvan Bam from New Delhi, India and the owner/performer at BB Ki Vines. I make funny videos on the internet and aim to spread smiles all over the world.

Times of Youth: Since BB is a short form of your own name, is there any other special reason why you prefer to call your vines by that? Why didn’t you choose some funky name?

Bhuvan Bam: No special reason as such. All my friends call me either ‘Bam’ or ‘BB’. People easily connect to that name and personally, I think it sounds cute. Haha!

Times of Youth: When did you decide that comedy and vine making was your calling?

Bhuvan Bam: I’ve been quite an entertainer since my school days. I thought of Vine making a year ago when I randomly created a video and it was appreciated by people.

Times of Youth: What was the first reaction of your family members when they heard your decision about being a comedian?

Bhuvan Bam: Interestingly, I am not a comedian. Music is my profession and passion. All my earnings are through my live performances and original songs. Yes, my parents were a bit skeptical about me creating comical videos but as long as they see me happy doing that, they’re okay with it.

Times of Youth: Which was your first funny video? How was the response to it?

Bhuvan Bam: My first video was ‘The Chakhna Issue’ which I uploaded in 2014. Not many people have seen it as I did not upload it to my page. It had got 10-15 views back then.

Bhuvan Bam BB ki Vines on Times of Youth

Times of Youth: We noticed that you have several of your videos which in a way make fun of parents. How do your parents react to that?

Bhuvan Bam: My parents are quite cool with it though they don’t relate themselves with any character.

Times of Youth: You prefer to feature your own self in various characters for your videos unless really needed, why is that so?

Bhuvan Bam: I have always felt comfortable working on my own. Frankly, I don’t like when someone tries to change my ideas/concepts. It changes and hinders my style of working. In future, I’d sure love to collab with other artists.

Times of Youth: Did any person ever take grave offense to any of your videos, and for what? Conversely, what has been the most genuine compliment you ever received?

Bhuvan Bam: Not really. Some people do tell me that my content is 18+ but that doesn’t stop me from doing what I do. Everyone has their own perception. The people who love my work in a massive majority so I don’t mind a bit of negativity.

Times of Youth: Your most watched video being of the “Doctor Sehgal” series, has there ever been any real Dr. Sehgal in your life to make fun of? Did you personally come across any doctor by that name who expressed his displeasure?

Bhuvan Bam: Dr. Sehgal is actually a real doctor whose clinic is right next to my house. I’ve had many funny experiences with him but he is nowhere similar to the on-screen Dr. Sehgal. I have just used his name and I feel guilty. Haha!

Times of Youth: Your independence day special vine, “A Lost Neighbour”, made in collaboration with a group of cross country viners was very well received. How was your experience while shooting it and the consequent reviews?

Bhuvan Bam: I was approached by Karachi Vynz just a week before. We talked over the Indo-Pak concept and finally decided to release it on the Independence Day. It was a bit tough shooting the video as everything was done through Whatsapp or Skype. But in the end, it came out well and was accepted very positively by viewers across the globe.

Rapid Fire Round:

  • Winter or Summer? Winters always!
  • Facebook or Twitter? Facebook
  • Coffee or tea? Coffee
  • Money or fame? Money
  • Adventurous or cautious? Cautious
  • Meat or veggies? Meat
  • Classic or modern? Classic
  • Cars or bikes? Bikes
  • Night or Morning? Depends on what’s need to be done. But night.

Times of Youth: Comedians, we hear, especially internet and social media sensation like you are, have a bumpy ride in terms of making a living. How has your journey been so far?

Bhuvan Bam: As I mentioned above, all my earnings come through my Live Musical Performances and Original Songs. I haven’t yet earned anything through Comedy.

Times of Youth: Any particular work of yours which is the closest to your heart?

Bhuvan Bam: This year, Our government has imposed many illogical bans in the country. In March 2015, I released my original song ‘Ban-Chod’ which was a reply to such bans. This song reached lakh views in just a day and was amongst the ‘Most Popular Video on Youtube’ for a week.

Times of Youth:  So which are your new projects that we should watch out for?

Bhuvan Bam: This year I’ll be releasing another original song. Also, on the comical front, there are many collaborations in process.

Times of Youth: Plagiarism, nowadays, is commonplace. Have you ever been its victim? What do you want to say to those who steal ideas to be famous?

Times of Youth: What has been your most unforgettable experience in your journey of spreading smiles?

Bhuvan Bam: Every day is a special one. A lot of people message me saying that after a long day at work/college they watch my videos. Feels great to be a reason behind so many smiles.
