From Punjab’s drug problem to Syrian war, he spoke about all the problems in the world.

Angad Singh Padda, a 23-yeal-old Sikh student, mesmerised everyone with his graduation speech at UC Berkeley. The UC Berkeley Leadership Award Recipient from Chandigarh, Punjab took the opportunity to talk about “problems”, not of his own but of the world. In a powerful, funny and evocative speech, he urged everyone to fight together for a greater good and “make the world a better place.”

And not just that. The young man who is also a National Jack Kent Cooke Scholar, and the recipient of the Poets & Quants Best and Brightest Business Undergraduate Award played the tabla before his speech. To highlight that the heart of every “Berkeley student beats with that passion” to make a world where there “is no I or me but only us and only we.”

    Why highlight "This SIKH student..." in the heading? I have never seen "A HINDU student..". We are all INDIANS, lets just keep it at that and people from all communities should be proud of what an Indian said. Keep religion away. Pls. And help build a more unified India. BTW, inspirational speech.

          The thoughts are excellent but are far from reality. In real world every person in the population of billions brings about conflicts with others. these conflicts are sometimes so strong that you can't even tolerate the survival of others. This hate which is developed while growing up has endless reasons. It's good if we change ourselves but expecting a change in the population of billions of people is too idealistic, this can only happen if we all start thinking the same way. Greed, religion, region, race and many more divisions have rotted our society. The emotions are so strong that if you start talking about peace you become the first enemy for these hate mongers.

                He is a Sikh. His relatives may have been murdered in cold blood by Indian police and army in 1984 riots. Just saying.
