    The Father of the Nation – Mahatma Gandhi – has this time found a musical echo in the Northeastern state of Assam as an award-winning music composer Ranjan Kumar Bezbaruah has come up with his soulful melodious rendition of Bapu’s favourite Gujarati bhajan ‘Vaishnava Jana To’ in mother of Indian languages Sanskrit.

    On the occasion of Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary, the bhajan ‘Vaishnava Jana To’ earlier translated into Sanskrit by a Varanasi-based scholar and now sung by Bezbaruah will have a country wide release on October 2nd, 2019. This is a first-of-its-kind musical initiative taken up in India.

    “I am happy and elated to have lent my voice to the composition and it was my concept. On the occasion of Gandhiji’s birthday, the song will be released on October 2nd. The Doordarshan will air the song on October 5th, 2019 and the All India Radio, Ranchi will air it on October 2nd, 2019,” said Bezbaruah while speaking to TIME8.

    “A number of legendary musicians have lent their melodious voice to the bhajan in the Gujarati version but this is for the first time that a Sanskirt version will be released for the public,” added the singer, composer and lyricist.

    In his 20-year long career, Bezbaruah translated popular Indian songs including a few of music maestro Bhupen Hazarika’s creations into Sanskrit and also lend his voice to them.  Presently, he is a Sanskrit teacher at Nagaon Government Girls’ Higher Senior Secondary School in Assam.
