Imagine an innocent kid waking up every day, dressing up for school, taking their breakfast, and hopping on the school bus and going to school with the looming feeling, maybe somewhat inconceivable to them, that it may actually be their last day at school because a lunatic somewhere could get any kind of gun he wishes just because he can, get into a school, and start shooting anyone indiscriminately. As you let the thoughts haunt you, just remember this is the reality America has been confronted with, and yet, it seems the issue remains unresolved.
This is a reality that award-winning filmmaker, artist, producer, and actor Richard Oliver Jr. has tried to wrap his head around, but every time he ends up feeling deeply frustrated with the USA, its government, and society at large.
How the most powerful nation on earth has failed to contain one of its single greatest threats, gun violence, remains a mystery to those observing from abroad and its citizens, including individuals like Richard Oliver Jr.
Something needs to change, and it is this actuality that motivated Richard Oliver Jr. to create “These Sad Times”- a reggae-conscious song and film that addresses the grave issues of gun violence and especially its colossal impact on vulnerable and innocent school-going kids.
With his pure voice that carries the raw emotions triggered by these tragic events, the hurt, and the shockwaves of gun violence, Richard takes us on a journey that confronts us with this grim reality.
The reality of innocent and vulnerable children in class, the reality that teachers, caregivers, and parents are also innocent victims; the reality of losing a dear child to gun violence!
The film delves deep into the harsh reality, visually and audibly demonstrating the devastating effects of gun violence—a single shot’s massive damage.
This is the time to act—we have to do something now to keep not only this generation safe but the future generations, lest they inherit a mad, unsafe, and atrocious world!
“These Sad Times”- the song and film—are available for streaming on major digital platforms.

Indian international music producer and owner of Shiva Music, Yash Raj Suneja, returns with the romantic track of the season, titled “I Love You”
Yash Raj Suneja is a multifaceted superstar by any measure of the word; his creative career spans a number of disciplines. He is a music producer and content creator who has won multiple awards in Jharkhand and West Bengal. His Shiva Music label has amassed a global following and is seriously expanding and spreading Bollywood culture all over the globe. A quick look on YouTube tells you everything you need to know about this global brand; it already has over 1.65 million subscribers, and which is quite an achievement.
So far, Yash Raj Suneja’s accomplishments as a hitmaker have been extraordinary. Just to scratch the surface, this mega Indian producer has been able to handle that mainstream stardom with admirable virtuosity, balancing records, stage shows, films, music videos, and other multimedia projects, alongside charitable activities.
Once again, Yash reaffirms his status as a prodigious talent, forward-thinking producer, and influential global superstar with his latest jam, “I Love You”- a masterclass in romantic Indian music that hits you with warmly familiar feelings of love and intimacy.
“I Love You” is a standout jam from start to finish and is really the result of first-rate production. This track will surely dominate the charts thanks to how incredible it is, both in grandiosity and scope. Yash really outdid himself with this one, which feels like a next-level project even for a megastar like him.
“I Love You” was actually produced by Shiva Music’s parent company, Shivamadhur Digital Private Limited, and features the phenomenally gifted Manvir Nayak on the vocals, with the music video acted by the equally incredible actor Alok Raj and the strikingly beautiful actress Bipasha Das. The cameraman and editor is Akash Lohra, who does an incredible job of blending those professional scenes together to come up with an eye-catching music video.
On a production level, “I Love You” captures the essence of romance and that Indian culture with gracious precision thanks to the stunning and catchy beats concocted from the sitar, sarod, tambura, sarangi, and the guitar. The saxophone adds depth and sonic elegance to the arrangement and elevates the song to greater heights.
This performance deeply resonates with the listener, and watching it with that accompanying music video is even more fulfilling; it’s like watching an intriguing love-inspired Bollywood film as the actors grab your attention from start to finish.
This is the anthem for love that gives you goosebumps and makes your heart skip a beat, and as Yash tears through the beats, he reminds anyone listening in of his consistent ear for pristine beats and knack for the commercial.
“I Love You” is an incredibly produced and immaculately arranged song; Yash set the stage for which the amazing singer Manvir skates, and the result of that is this addicting song that will remain in your head long after it is gone!
The music video is equally stunning as the track itself and the perfect complement to this song, both in storyline and symbolism.
Yash and his Shiva Music are breaking new ground every day as they sell the Indian culture to the world and invite more people to share in their richly eclectic heritage, where good music and great people reside.
“I Love You” is a worthy addition to any playlist, which is why I highly recommend this track.
