Pyara Bharat - Hindi Patriotic Songs
The spirit of India and indeed, every sovereign nation thrives on patriotism. Today's world has seen many families emigrating in search of greener pastures, yet the longing for their home country follows them wherever they go. Patriotic songs enhance each individual's identity, reminding them of their roots and setting off nostalgic chords of the heart.
These songs aim at bringing together not only Indians, but the entire global population to join in and celebrate truth, justice and freedom. The central focus of this album is to celebrate the spirit of independence and peace throughout the world.
This album highlights the need for unity in diversity, perseverance when faced with adversity, and compassion in the face of malice. To each individual the thought of their home country brings moist eyes, fond memories and above all the warmth of love. The songs on this CD have been carefully chosen to bring forth and spread throughout the world, this warmth of love and universal peace and harmony.
