Written & produced by serial technology entrepreneur & philanthropist, Sanjeev Dahiwadkar & sung by noted multilingual singer, Himangi Vishwaroop, ‘Me Ek Ninavi Mawala’ song (https://youtu.be/pTWZmMFYGyY) aims to promote the sense of pride among every Indian on this auspicious occasion. IndiaAsha aims to reach a minimum of 10 million Indian citizens through this patriotic song during “Har Ghar Tiranga” initiative.
To achieve the feat, the leading NGO has appealed to every Indian to join this movement by not only listening to and watching this song; but also, by promoting it among at least 10 members of his family, friends & relatives.
India has already embarked on a glowing celebration schedule for commemorating the 75th year of Independence. Under ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebration, the country is currently honouring the Indian flag through ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign.
With the launch of the ‘Me Ek Ninavi Mawala’ song, IndiaAsha joins the country in remembering those freedom fighters, soldiers, farmers, workers, and people from every walk of life whose sacrifices have made the country where it is today.
In fact, the ‘Me Ek Ninavi Mawala’ (https://youtu.be/pTWZmMFYGyY) song is dedicated to the supreme sacrifice of Indian soldiers. Our soldiers guard the borders to protect India’s national sovereignty and integrity in much harsh conditions of the Himalayas to North East; from the Arabian Ocean to the Bay of Bengal & beyond, along with the country’s airspace. Every year, lakhs of Indian youth from the far-flung region of the country leave their families to join the much-coveted services in the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force. These unknown and unsung heroes, who never throng the limelight, keep the ideals of India alive through their tireless services. With the launch of the ‘Me Ek Ninavi Mawala’ song, IndiaAsha Foundation celebrates the life stories of these forgotten heroes.
Like our soldiers; millions of farmers, labourers, professionals working in health, sports, art, literature, research, and manufacturing; and entrepreneurs among others serve the country dutifully and diligently. With this song, IndiaAsha shows its gratitude to all those unsung heroes whose tireless toiling is defining India as a great nation.
Expressing his gratefulness, Chief Patron of IndiaAsha Foundation, Sanjeev Dahiwadkar said, “India as a concept has evolved from its thousands of years of civilizational history. Its glorious past, enriching present, and promising future are the outcomes of many sacrifices of real-life heroes. As we celebrate the 75th year of Indian Independence, it’s time to pause and remember those supreme souls who contributed to the making of India in its present form. The song is a tribute from IndiaAsha Foundation which strives to make Indian lives better every day. We are confident that people will not only embrace the sentiment behind this song but will also act as brand ambassadors in promoting this very idea among their near and dear ones.”
Being the lead singer, noted artist Himangi Vishwaroop said, “It is indeed a proud moment to sing such a compassionate song that is dedicated to our brave soldiers and workers. When India celebrates its 75th year of Independence, it is very timely to show our heartfelt gratitude to those inspiring souls to whom we owe our existence. I commend IndiaAsha Foundation to take such initiative as India begins its journey to a glorious future in all earnest.”
