dare to think SHLUR BAN PYRKHAT

Tarik, Shillong’s itinerant secret subverts, release its latest bi-lingual music video single ‘Dare to think’. This is the band’s first single since their 13 city debut album tour earlier this year.
‘Dare to think’ was inspired by the drivers of shared taxis and the unemployed of Shillong, their understanding of the city and its politics. It is also a comment upon the social pressures and anxieties felt by many young people, the world over.

No tanks were harmed in the making of this video.

Tarik is Valte Chawngthu, Nikolaus Gerold and Wanphrang Diengdoh

I am not the image
I am not the image
Society reflects my reality

I am not the image
I am not the image
Society reflects my reality

Vendors of hope now you go hide
We have found our own light
You can run a country on your fables
I stand in solidarity with my allies

Dare to think
And dare to act
Educate and organise
Educate and organise

Namar mynta ngam sngew myntoi (Because right now I don’t see the point)
Ban leit wad kam ruh hap pynbam pisa (If I’m looking for a job why should I be paying for it)

Parashnong parathaw, kane ka long ka jingpynbna.
Yn sangeh noh ka sam khaw,
Yn sangeh noh ka sam umphniang sharak
Yn sangeh noh ka sam shini
Namar napdeng jong phi ki niangkohnguh
Lah sdang don ba kylli jingkylli
Ka kamram jong phi kam dei ban kylli jingkylli
Kam kamram jongphi ka long tang ban shu bud, bud, bud, bud

(Fellow citizens this is an announcement.
We are stopping the supply of ration such as rice, kerosene and sugar
Because there are among you who have been questioning authority.
Your duty is not to question authority
Your duty is just to follow follow follow follow)
Vendors of hope now you go hide

We have found our own light
You can run a country on your fables
I stand in solidarity with my allies
