Indian progressive metalcore band The Cosmic Truth start this poignant music video laying out the facts of the diversity found in the country of their birth – India. And then begin to set the tone of what lies ahead when they talk about how the country in previous generations had residents who lived in peace with one another regardless of the 19,500 different languages spoken and an equal amount of religious beliefs. It was not only idiotic leaders began to stir the pot that we see the current state of the country.
Very poignant as all across the world we’re seeing leaders who seem to only be able to hold on to power by sowing division based on race, ethnicity and/or religion.
We highly encourage you to check out the video.
“Not in my name” is about the power of the people and their voice of dissent. India’s face of this movement was aimed at the divisive nature of policies implemented by its leaders. It’s a call for harmony in the midst of rising hatred between communities fuelled by the people in power purely for political gains.
The lyrics portray pensiveness and anguish. Our message goes out to the world and we urge people to question their beliefs.”
