One of the most effective ways to convey social issues is through art. Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh teamed up with music guru Navzar Eraneein March to promote new talent and new music. The two, who previously worked together in ‘Gully Boy’, launched their own music label titled IncInk. This week, Ranveer unveiled the second outing from the venture. 'Paathshala', the recently released song raises important questions about the education system of India.
The number marks the debut of Spitfire (real name Nitin Mishra), who is seen singing and acting in the video. The song feautures his own life-story and how he found the strength to break through stereotypes and discover his real identity. Mishra sings about education and learning and about setting himself free.

Speaking about this, Ranveer said, "This song got my attention because it is actually about how the birth of Spitfire, the performer, saved Nitin Mishra. Our society has stratified rigid methods of education, learning and consider these the ultimate benchmark of a person's abilities. We disagree," Ranveer said in a statement.
Echoing his sentiments, Eranee added, "Being yourself is considered an act of revolution in today's culture. Art and expression free us from the conditions of our lives."
Social media users responded to the song thus:
