More than 200 singers, including Asha Bhosle and Sonu Nigam, have come together to create a song titled “Jayatu Jayatu Bharatam, Vasudev Kutumbakkam”.

“‘Jayatu Jayatu Bharatam’ — the historic anthem in 14 languages is dedicated as a salutation to each and every Indian who has stood together as a family in these difficult times. The time has now come to rise above all challenges and be a part of the new ‘Jagaa Hua Bharat’ — winning over one of the biggest crises to humanity,” Asha said.


Referring to the ongoing lockdown amid the coronavirus crisis, singer S.P. Balasubrahmanyam said: “Even in these difficult times, we salute every Indian who has shown so much resilience. The nation is now emerging much stronger — the awakened India. We are sure that India will emerge stronger and this is our humble offering.”

Sonu said as part of “our duty and respect to our fans and the citizens of our country, and on their popular demand, we are now offering the ‘ISRA One Nation One Voice — Jayatu Jayatu Bharatam’ incorporating different languages of the country to match up to the vastness and diversity of India”.

Every artiste had recorded from home during the lockdown.

“On popular demand from fans of all singers and to reflect the current situation of a strong India, we are now launching a historic song offering, which has never been done before — 200 plus singers of the country coming together for one song. This one of its kind anthem has been beautifully composed and written by ISRA members Shankar Mahadevan and Prasoon Joshi, respectively,” said Sanjay Tandon, CEO of Indian Singers Rights Association (ISRA).

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
