On Occasion of the Indian Republic Day


Wanted to sing and post the song Yeh jo desh hai tera on occasion of the Republic Day. Tried it last night, but the recording didn't come out well. My voice sounded really croaky. It's not easy to sing after lecturing for one and half hours, especially if you are giving your lecture in a hall that has a seating capacity of over 250. Usually, whenever I am teaching in these large halls, I use a microphone. However, yesterday the microphone didn't work because of some technical difficulty. Actually, only the batteries had died but I realized that only after my class got over. Anyway, my voice was a little tired and hoarse after the class. So, when I sang the song after coming home, it didn't come out well. That said, I wonder how did Swami Vivekananda address a crowd of over seven thousand without any microphone at the 1893 Parliament of World Religions in Chicago. Clearly, I have a long way to go. Coming back to the song, I re-recorded the song today evening. It's pretty crude, but much better than my last evening's version. I'm happy that I succeeded in posting the song when it is still officially the January-26. Happy Republic Day!
