I-Day programme

I am just back from the Independence Day flag-hoisting ceremony. It rained yesterday night, and the morning is also overcast. Though the threat of rain was there, the ceremony went off smoothly. After the usual formalities and the unfurling of the flag, the institute music group 3.4 sang a few patriotic songs, and this genre being dominated in Hindi films by Rafi, 2 out of 4 songs were Rafi songs. 'jahaan daal daal par sone kii...' came first, and although it was sung well, it lacked the punch of the original. Similar was the case with 'kar chale ham fidaa...', which sounded more like Sonu Nigam than Rafi. A male version of 'ai mere vatan ke logon' was performed, and it was done quite superbly. Finally, 'har karam apanaa karenge...' from 'Karma' was performed.
