This mash-up of Closer and Kabira is the therapy you need to deal with everything that's wrong with the world

You'll want to play it on loop.

So, it feels the world is coming to an end.

Donald Trump is the next President of the United States of America; the Indian Government has scrapped 500 and 1,000 rupee notes, rendering most of us broke for a while; and one of our favourite chocolate bars has been subjected to a cruel makeover (no, we don't want a shrunken version of Toblerone that has more valleys than peaks.) All this in 24 hours--phew!

What's a despondent person too broke to buy her favourite chocolate, which is a smokescreen now anyway, to do?

Listen to some uplifting music perhaps? If you agree, then you should definitely give this mash-up of Kabira from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Closer by The Chainsmokers a chance.

Performed by Vidya Iyer (you may know her from YouTube video channel Vidya Vox) alongside Casey Breves to the music of Shankar Tucker, this song is catchy AF.

Vidya has a lot of fusion covers to her credit--her mash-up of Lean On and Jind Mahi being one of her most famous renditions. Though if you ask her, this is her best work yet.

And we guarantee you won't be able to stop yourself from humming this tune for a long time.
