The 2.15minute video showed the father-son duo casually jamming together while sitting at a table — with the boy singing the profound words.

As the little boy was seen turning pages of a book while performing his soulful rendition of the song, Chintamani explained that one of their favourite books is American comic artist and illustrator Jon J Muth’s illustrated book on Dylan’s 1963 iconic protest song.
