The MJ Show #30 (Republic Day Special)

I decided to take a little detour from the music I've been giving you today thanks to a couple of videos I saw a little while ago. I saw the remakes of "Mile Sur Mera Tumhara" a little while ago and I was completely moved by them. I think the makers of the song have done a fabulous job...but when I heard it, I thought of the original...and I had to share it with you all.
Bhimsen Joshi, one of the greatest singers, in the history of mankind, in my opinion had started off the old version and I get goose bumps just thinking about it.

You know what, no matter how "western" I may seem in my choice of music and the language I feel most comfortable in, I am extremely proud to say that I'm an Indian.
Even today, every time I hear the national anthem, be it in a theater or on tv, I get goose bumps and I feel superbly proud to be a part of this country.
A couple of years ago, my band, The Works had the opportunity of celebrating the band's first year anniversary at Hard Rock Cafe on the 14th of August. At midnight, as the we stepped into the 15th of August, in the middle of a rock show, I decided that I would sing the national anthem!
Honestly, I think it was the proudest moment of my singing career, whatever little I've had.
I have a horrible memory, but I know that I'll remember that moment always.

I think we have some BRILLIANT songs that make me feel extremely proud to say that I'm an Indian.
Tonight, I'm sharing some such songs with you.
Hope they make you feel as good as they did me.

Happy Republic Day my fellow Indians!
