Millions of innocent people and thousand of cops have lost their lives, fighting terrorism but the thirst for human blood of the creators and fumigators of terrorists has not been quenched so far. In today's world, terrorism does not only affect a handful of nations. The roots of this vice are profoundly spread in each and every country. Be it India, Afghanistan, USA, UK, Spain, Palestine, or any other country in the world. Better late than never, we think its high time now. We need to answer the terrorists who are having fun with their guns and bombs. We need to BE THE CHANGE, and not just ask for it. Just talking about terrorism and doing nothing is not going to solve this problem. How many lives should we loose? How much blood should we sacrifice to these monsters? We common people are too strong, its just the matter to awaken our souls, and we as young musicians have taken a small step to bring awareness amongst YOUNGISTAN - the young blood of this world that, yes now its high time, and its enough. Time has come to fight back, and we have already started with our musical efforts. We want all people to realize thru this song that we are not cowards. We are united and we have all the guts to fight back terrorism. This is a wakeup call from our side, and we hope that soon we will not be just two of them but the whole world will sing with us and act against terror in their own ways. Thanks Chirag & Anita
