DHARAMSHALA, August 26: A Delhi based rock band has dedicated a music video to Tibet paying tribute to the Tibetans who have sacrificed their lives through self immolations.
Titled ‘Freedom’, the music video calls the world to unite for Tibet. “There is a lack of unification among the rest of the world that is helping China to continue its repression in Tibet. We fail to understand that why the world is not standing up together,” the band’s frontman Arjun Singh Rawal said.
Arjun said the series of self-immolation protests in Tibet has inspired him to write the song. Chill Om Records, India's leading Independent Record Label has teamed up with Arjun to support the Tibet cause.

Varun Arora, the band manager, said they had no clue initially how they could help Tibet. All they had in mind was to help Tibet's struggle get noticed. “All we could do for it was through our music. Because we believe Music has the power to change people.”
“This music video is a gift to the Dalai Lama and we live by the Dalai Lama’s thoughts, and believe that Tibet would be free one day”, said Arjun.
“Freedom” was released last month and was recorded by Chill Om Records, India’s leading independent record label.
A part of lyrics reads, “Everything you made, And everything you took away for good, I fought for the love and for the peace in you, I crossed the line for you, I sacrificed for you, I crossed the line for you and, Broke away...”
The band wants all the Tibetan patriots to know that they support them. The song is made available for free download here
The band's debut album, ‘Beer Pong’ was released on Times Music. The band takes you back to the hard-rock scene, combines several contemporary elements of alternative rock and remains very open to experimenting with variety of other genres, said Varun.
