#MileSurMeraTumhara: The Twitter Trend Bringing The Internet Together

In India, the hashtag #MileSurMeraTumhara has been trending on Twitter

New Delhi:  Tired of all the negativity on social media these days? We are too. But here's one Twitter trend that's bringing the Internet together. The hashtag #MileSurMeraTumhara has been trending on Twitter since Monday night and the tweets are a much-needed reminder that there is more that unites us as a country than people would believe looking at their Twitter timelines.

The first tweet tagged with the hashtag was in response to the controversy stirred up by Bollywood playback singer Sonu Nigam on Monday morning. In a series of tweets, he complained about being woken up by the azaan (the morning call to prayer), calling it "forced religiousness."
 
Then someone tweeted the classic song along with the hashtag:
 
The song was released in 1988 as part of an effort to promote national integration. It featured renowned singers, musicians and other celebrities from across India singing in a variety of languages.

Blast from the past? Twitterati thought so too:
 
People slowly started to tweet other such songs as well.
 

Inspired, Bollywood music singer and composer Vishal Dadlani even wrote a song after reading some of the tweets and posted a short clip on Instagram:
