The Indian PM Narendra Modi recently addressed the country amid lockdown urging people to focus on “self reliance” in the coming future. Asking to promote everything local as the Indian economy along with the world’s plunges down, Modi asked people to help boost the economy by preferring Made in India over others.
After his address, veteran singer Lata Mangeshkar shared a tweet in which she posted a new song titled ‘Jayatu Jayatu Bharatam- Vasudev Kutumbakkam’ sung by more than 200 singers inspired by the spirit of a self-reliant India amid the coronavirus pandemic. She wrote, "Our talented ISRA singers came together to make this song inspired by the spirit of 'aatma-nirbhar' India, which is dedicated to the people of India and PM Narendra Modi."
Modi shared the tweet and wrote, "This song will thrill and inspire everyone. It gives a melodious message for the 'aatma-nirbhar' (self-reliant) India.”
यह गीत हर किसी को उत्साहित और प्रेरित करने वाला है। इसमें आत्मनिर्भर भारत के लिए सुरों से सजा उद्घोष है। https://t.co/N6qy4BaCfI— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) May 17, 2020
The song has been described as the largest anthem platform where 211 Indian Singers Rights Association (ISRA) members have come together "in a melodious salutation to the spirit of self-reliant India."
It has been sung by the likes of Asha Bhonsle, Sonu Nigam, Shankar Mahadevan, Shaan, Usha Uthup and Prasoon Joshi among others who recorded their parts from their homes due to the ongoing lockdown.
The song has been composed by Shankar Mahadevan and written by Prasoon Joshi.
