High On Josh: 20 Hindi Songs That Are Sure To Ignite The Fire Within You

The only thing that can get today’s youth to achieve their dreams is the fire of passion and determination. And during the course of my work I have seen amongst today’s youth the spark to do something good, to do something for the betterment of society and fellow people. If they are directed in the right path, the world will be a better place to live in. But sometimes the uncertainty in the day-to-day life can bring a dooming feeling within most of them.
