BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: Dilin Nair, more popularly known by the acronym Raftaar and his hip-swinging rap songs, has been churning out kindness instead of hard-hitting words amidst the lockdown.
To help the helpless and needy in such times, Raftaar and his team along with his friends have been distributing food to those who need in Delhi and Mumbai besides feeding stray dogs and taking care of them.
“We’ve been feeding around 600 people and 200 dogs every day. We’re also distributing food packages to 300 families. Along with the food, we’re also distributing masks if required,” he said, reports Hindustan Times.
Help has been coming from unexpected quarters and he is grateful for that. “A young boy recently donated Rs 14 from his pocket money. He said, ‘Uncle, my pocket money is Rs 30. I have spent the rest and only this much left.’ It’s so beautiful. I think you don’t have to share photos or videos about what you’re doing. You can inspire silently too,” he said, according to the publication.
Though his parents are currently residing in Delhi now, Raftaar has docked his ship in Mumbai. He has been taking this time to work on developing and improving his music and lyrical abilities while dabbling in the technical side of things like mixing and sound engineering.
