New Anthem



It is election time again in most of the states in India
This VDO is directly or indirectly related to ‘these days’

In between, you can click the play button on the VDO, so that it will download by the time you finish reading :-)

An inspirational video, a Times of India initiative, termed as the ‘New Anthem’ about India, a very neatly shot campaign ad which shows how to take the initial step as an individual, and thereby make the nation follow in the right direction. This VDO has inspired the youth of this nation in their thought process for sure.

The motto of the VDO is simple

Just don’t keep complaining about anything and everything, but BE THE CHANGE.

And the lyric is something like, HAVE A PRIDE IN YOUR EXISTENCE AND YOUR ACTIONS. NOTHING IS “BIG” ENOUGH FOR YOU.

And yes this message and song is more inspiring and is the need of the hour, for a nation which always has an inferior feeling.

That’s a translation I got from a friend who is good in understanding poetry

He said whenever a translation happens the essense drains off.......
This is how it goes.....

Clinch the sky to stand, and walk with the breeze in your hands,
Be the front-runner; because when you walk, India walks with you.

Lend your hand to pull out the Sun in the morning,
Fill up your hands with sunlight, and fling it around,
Keep you legs on the horizon, and move with pride,
Clinch the sky to stand, and walk with the breeze in your hands,
Be the front-runner; because when you walk, India walks with you

WOW!! Can’t stop saluting you Gulzar Sab

Jai Hind!!!

Hi BG, the message of your post is perfect for
times such as these. Walk as a breeze, carry
sunshine in your hands and your words -Yes!

I try to remember the words of Og Mandigo -
don't complain, because when you complain you
become a beggar.

Thank you for these thought-renewing words.

Hi GREENER BANGALORE
I really want to hear that video but my sound card has given up life right now.
I like the sentiments though. I think a confident and generous individual can make a big difference in the life of his/her nation.
I like the way you are highlighting the environment in your blog. There is too much of an impression abroad that India is a nation with few trees. Many just think of your teeming cities.

Hi Cynthia,Iyer,Sandy,June,Midlife and Aruna...Thank you so much for the comments and yes was so motivating and inspiring...a very well shot campaign ad

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
