A Melodic Homage: Pan IIT Alumni’s Homage to Timeless India

5 Feb 2024

IIT Bombay alumnus, Mr. Kiran  Pradhan, alongwith Mr. Pravin Gupta from IIT Kanpur (1968), and Mr. Vinod Rajput from IIT Kharagpur (1968), joined forces to create a musical composition. Expressing a deep connection to their motherland, these three IIT alumni now settled in Sydney, Australia, collaborated on a song that encapsulates India’s rich culture, traditions, and age-old way of life. Mr. Pradhan said, “These qualities that bound our nation together are now rising like a phoenix from the ashes.”

While Mr. Gupta penned the beautiful lyrics, Mr. Rajput lent his vocals, and Mr. Pradhan composed and arranged the music. The entire production was carried out in Mr. Pradhan’s Sydney studio, with the assistance of a videographer to create a visually appealing video.

This heartfelt creation, titled “Resurging India” was released on January 24, 2024, as a dedication to their beloved India. The following video encapsulates the culmination of their artistic collaboration celebrating Indian culture, IIT Bombay, Republic Day, and Independence Day.

This musical ode is dedicated to their homeland even as it celebrates India’s unity and resilience. The song is also an expression of the enduring bonds forged within the IIT community and the profound impact of their collective talent on the artistic landscape.
