December 25, 2016 witnessed a Grand event that brought the gems among GSB community on the same stage. The great ones included Hon. Ministers, Suresh Prabhu and Manohar Parrikar, and also great entrepreneurs from our community. A special part of the event was expressing solidarity with our Armed Forces and contributing as a community to the Armed Forces Welfare Fund.
For Radio Idli, the event turned out to be very special since our team had a chance to record a landmark GSB anthem for the event. The anthem was written by the great and very affectionate – Manohar Nayak-maam of Shankh Studios (unarguably the best dubbing and recording studio in India, in my humble opinion as a GSB and as a good friend too 🙂 ). Manohar-maam’s speeches, particularly the one of Dorko vs. Parko went viral on Whatsapp. His words spin magic and have to be heard and felt to believe.
Our star singers – Archana Kamath, Sunil Kamath; two prodigys – Shrinivas and Brahmi Shenoy (you may have heard them on YouTube or at our community events too! We will post more about them for sure!). Here is the song, don’t miss the visuals and the lyrics!
The anthem beautifully brings together all good elements – Religious, Cultural and social, of our great Gaud Saraswat Brahmin community. Hope you all like and cherish this as much as we did while getting it recorded, thanks to Manohar-maam.
