Independence Day is almost here! Stalls selling national flags and colourful jhandiyaan have already started adorning the streets of various cities. Patriotic zeal is on a high and in the next couple of days, we will see houses decorated with national flags and patriotic songs blasting through the speakers.
However, a group of youngsters has gathered and produced their own rendition of the national anthem! Belonging to multiple ethnicities, religions, and cities, the lot came together virtually and worked on the anthem. "We actually came up with the idea last week," Daud Ghazi, the producer, shared with The Express Tribune. "The anthem has a few of my friends and family members."
The 22-year-old NUST student further shared how they recorded and shot the video on their mobile phones. "We just thought that we should experiment with the anthem - maybe add an instrument or so - and see how it all comes together. And it did!"
Ghazi went on to add that it wasn't easy to go through with the song as they all couldn't meet and work on it together. "We couldn't meet and some of the guys aren't even in the country. However, we did try to be inclusive and have people from different religions (minorities) and cities."
Ghazi, himself, is an aspiring musician and hopes to form a platform for young artists.
