Sharing this soulful rendition of India's National Anthem on this 63rd Republic Day today

Indians, and India loving people across the globe, are celebrating India's 63rd Republic Day today-- the 26th day of January, 2012.

We, here at BricksnMortar Edesk, extend heartiest wishes and celebratory nuances to all the Indians and India loving people across the globe on this occasion. Being proud of our mother country and the Indianness is something we cherish to wear on our sleeves.

We would like to share this beautiful and touching rendition of India's National Anthem-- "Jan, Gann, Mann" by means of this post that although was created coinciding with last year's republic day by one of India's premier advertising and media houses-- Mudra Group for another premier media barons- Reliance MediaWorks/ BIG Cinemas. The rendition's been produced by Chrome Pictures.

Though there have been umpteen renditions and adaptations made of India's National Anthem, the uniqueness of this particular rendition is that its been created differently by means and souls of 'special children'. The uniqueness of concept, production and presentation makes it a soul-touching and proud rendition for one and all who connects with it through their hearts.

As afaqs(dot)com puts it, "The presentation is a unique one, as it has been entirely shot in sign language. Children with hearing and speech disabilities have acted in it, thus sending out the message that despite impairment, one has the right to sing the national Anthem in his/her own special way. 'Patriotism knows no language' is the central theme of the film. the film has special kids present the National Anthem in sign language and through gestures."

"The film was shot in Mumbai's Don Bosco School. It features nearly 500 children, from eight Mumbai-based special schools. The schools held rehearsals for nine days, leading to the final shoot. Sangeeta Gala, a mute-training and lip reading specialist teacher, taught the children how to express the national anthem in sign language."

We now leave you all with a direct link of this beautiful rendition. Enjoy it.. and do not bother much if you find your cheeks drenched with tears of heartfelt emotions. We experienced the same too, and most likely you would too!



Happy Republic Day once again. Rejoice the feeling of Indianness.
