GOA: The three-month lockdown period has proved to be a time for creative stimulation for 22-year-old singer, Akshada Bandekar, she released a Hindi song titled ‘We are one’ to mark Independence Day. “I wrote the song with Independence Day in mind because I wanted to portray unity, which is India’s actual strength,” Akshada said. Opening with the iconic line from Jawaharlal Nehru’s ‘Tryst With Destiny,’ the song tunes up to remind people that Indians are united in the face of adversity.
The phrase ‘we are one’ has been used in different Indian languages in the song by a multitude of voices. Akshada says that she single-handedly carried out the composition during the lockdown, right from penning down the lyrics to shooting the video. The video was uploaded on August 14 on YouTube and Facebook.
