Don't Lose Faith in Humanity Just Yet

There is growing religious intolerance across the world and it is swiftly spreading everywhere. Therefore, this television commercial sets out to deliver a simple and timely reminder – that we are all one people: 
 
Commissioned by India’s Tata Sky, the ad sees three classical Muslim Sufi musicians recreating popular Christmas carols such as “Silent Night”, “Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, and “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” on instruments like the oud, mandolin, sarangi and rubaab.
 
Ending with the message “Don’t lose faith in humanity just yet”, this video has got us right in the feels. On that note, have a Merry Christmas, folks!

Not everybody is feeling merry though! I am still grading exam scripts and I am drowning under a tsunami of answer booklets. If I am looking for just one reason to leave academia, this is it!
