Mangaluru, Nov 25: Aiming to spread peace, harmony and brotherhood in the society, students of SDM College, Ujire have taken up an initiative to release an eight-minute music video titled 'Parahita Bayaso'.
It is said that the video will be released on Wednesday to mark the 73rd birthday of Dharmasthala Dharmadhikari Dr D Veerendra Heggade.
It is said that the video song Parahita Bayaso, is the Kannada version of reformer Narsinh Mehta Vaishnava Janato.
The video song Parahita Bayaso Manada Olage, Devaru Iruvudu Kaaneya (Could you not see God in the heart which wishes for good of others) has been written by N K Padmanabha who works as an assistant professor in the journalism department SDM College Ujire.
Ganapati Divana, final year post-graduate student from the journalism department wrote the script for the music video. Madhav Holla, assistant professor for BVoc in digital film-making and V Krishna Prashant, technical coordinator for SDM Multimedia has done cinematography for the video song along with seven students each from journalism and BVoc courses at SDM college Ujire. Theatre personality Jeevanram Sullia played the lead role in the music video. The song is sung by Ninaada Nayak.
Speaking to Daijiworld, N K Padmanabha said, "Mahatma Gandhi was also inspired by the 'Vaishnava Janato' song of Narsinh Mehta. When students sang this song during Gandhi Jayanthi at college inspired me to write this song in the Kannada version. This is the effort to show the new generation that there is a beautiful life beyond religious hatred and violence. The song has been written emphasizing the influence of the corrupted mind on youth. It is also an effort to wipe out the misconception of the young generation who believes in violence."
