New Delhi: Where socialites are busy expressing their varied views on ‘Intolerant India,’ there A.R. Rehman, who is a true peace-maker, has created a mesmerizing rendition of ‘ Hum Ko Man Ki Shakti Dena’ as a tribute to 26/11 Mumbai massacre’s victims.
The Oscar-winning composer took to his Facebook page to share the music with his fans, where he can heard singing the beautiful rendition of the classic song, and wrote, “In 2008, humanity was tried, tested and annihilated. This song, written by Gulzar with music by Vasant Desai and sung by me is dedicated to all victims of hate. You are welcome to join me in this prayer.”
The ‘Jai Ho’ hit-maker also attached his still picture, where he is standing under the trees and looking up in search of light, with the audio.
Originally, the song was written for the 1971 film ‘Guddi’ by Gulzar, set to music by Vasant Desai and sung by Vani Jairam, and is still sung as a prayer in schools across India. (ANI)
