Mile Sur Mera Tumhara (My Unplugged Version)

This is a song I grew up listening on the Doordarshan. I don't remember the exact year when it was first broadcasted; Wikipedia says it was in 1988. Comprising lyrics from fourteen different Indian languages, 'Mile Sur Mera Tumhara' celebrated the unity existing in the diversity of India. For the new generation, the original song was recently remade into Phir Mile Sur Mera Tumhara, but I think it is a musical disaster. The new version would be better called Na Mile Sur Mera Tumhara, because it really goes besur (off-tune) in several places. My friend described it really well on Facebook, "Mile sur tera tumhara, besur bane harhara!" Anyway, here is my attempt in singing the original "Mile Sur..." It is a difficult song, but I have tried my best to approximate the nuances of the original song. Please listen to the song, and post your valued feedback. Thank you.
