On the eve of Independence Day (August 14), singer and songwriter Akshada Bandekar released a patriotic song ‘Hum Sab EkHai / We Are One’. Given the social distancing norms in place, the lyrics, composition and music production is entirely done by her at home. “Creativity doesn’t stop and I felt like making this song. And that’s how the thoughts started flowing and I penned it down,” she says.
The main message of the song, she said, is that India’s strength lies in its unity. This, she has tried to portray in the song by having some of her family and friends say the phrase “We Are One” in different languages of India.
(‘Hum Sab EkHai / We Are One’ is available on her YouTube channel and Facebook page.)
