Today every aspect of human life, right from food, clothing to music is deeply under the influence of the West. The audio-CD?Aage aur ladai hai?comes as a pleasant surprise. The songs subtly bring forth the ill-effects of globalisation, warn the countrymen against the menace of multinationals and assert the determination for the struggle for the suraj. The songs penned by noted Swadeshi writer, poet, satirist and activist Shri Akshay Jain, are dedicated to Swadeshi and patriotism. The depth of feelings, variety of emotions is matchless. The songs are particularly noteworthy for their brilliant music by Shri Kuldeep Singh. Singers Jasvinder Singh Tewari, Shoma Banerjee and Sudhanshu Tewari make it a memorable experience. Their renderings are dramatic, evocative and sensitive. It is a poetry that has bloomed from the Indian soil and the music has the fragrance and freshness of the soil.
The songs expose the economic imperialism of multinationals, their collective harmful impacts on Indian economy and are aimed at forewarning people about external dangers of the multinationals. They stress the strengths of India and help in spreading awareness among the masses about the importance of Swadeshi as a way of life. The songs emphasise the need to preserve family ties and remain together in a family and also in society. The patriotic songs are steeped in the spirit of nationalism and chivalry that would be instrumental in boosting up the Indian spirits and inspire them to participate in the struggle. The assertive manifestation certainly enlightens the hearts of the listeners. It asserts the determination and confidence to rebuild the dream of self-sufficient Bharat. The cost of one CD is Rs 50 and the audio-cassette costs Rs 40. (FOC)
