On January 26, 2021, India celebrated its 72nd Republic Day which commemorates the day the Indian Constitution came into force. Celebrated as a national holiday, the occasion is celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm, marking the spirit of independent India. Internet users fill social media writing about the Indian Constitution and its principles, sharing images with the national flag and quotes from Dr BR Ambedkar, the architect of the Indian constitution.
However, to mark Republic Day this year, Animal Planet India had planned a surprise for all compatriots. The channel’s digital arm released an interpretation of Saare Jahan Se Acha composed with the voices of Indian Wildlife and posted it on YouTube. The beautiful version released on January 25 is performed by acapella group Raaga Trippin and has garnered over 10 lakh views so far.
Mumbai-based acapella band recreated the voices of animals and birds to sing this amazing patriotic song. Entitled “Sounds of the Indian Wildlife”, the video will surely give you goosebumps and make you proud. Watch the video here:
In the description, Animal planet with nearly 61,000 subscribers wrote that the video is their tribute to the incredible biodiversity of India. The nearly two-minute video features stunning snapshots of Indian wildlife. The clip begins with a disclaimer stating that “No animals were harmed during the making of this video. All animal and bird sounds were performed by artists.
The viral video has captured the hearts of internet users, who made it viral overnight by sharing it widely on various social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook. The clip opens with a photo of a kingfisher and the sounds of birds. A few moments later, we also see a majestic lioness carrying her baby in her mouth while crossing a water point. The video celebrates India’s colorful and diverse wildlife which is home to over 90,000 animal species and 45,000 plant species.
As the video progresses, we witness amazing shots of animals and birds like elephants, peacocks, tigers, lions, monkeys and chimpanzees as the Saare Jahan se Acha is heard in the background. Some users commented on âJai Hindâ in the comments section of the video.
In conversation with Telangana today, the acapella group said they jumped at the chance when the channel approached them to create this jungle using just their 5 voices to celebrate the diversity of wildlife from all over India in a patriotic way.
The 5-member group includes Alan De Souza, Gary Misquitta, Gwen Dias, Keshia Braganza, Suzanne D’Mello and Thomson Andrews.
