‘The beauty of India’: Muslim man’s rendition of iconic Mahabharat title song goes viral

Sitting in front of the television every Sunday to enjoy Ramayana and Mahabharat was a big part of every desi person’s life in the late 80s and early 90s. Now, evoking nostalgia, a Muslim man’s rendition of the Mahabharat title track is winning hearts online.

Shared by Dr S Y Quraishi, the former chief election commissioner of India, an elderly man is seen singing the song originally sung by Mahendra Kapoor for BR Chopra epic mythological show. Celebrating the unity in diversity, moving beyond religious lines, the man was seen performing the iconic introduction of the show, ‘Mahabharat Katha’, beautifully singing the whole verse and even pausing for the interlude in between, in a nod to the blowing of the conch.

“Beating the stereotypes!” Quraishi wrote online, sharing the over one minute video, which showed the listeners getting quite impressed by the man’s rendition.
