An ode to journalists

Mridula Ghai has written 22 poems in Hindi and a few in English ever since she began in April.

A poem written by Additional Central Provident Fund Commissioner Headquarters (at EPFO, Ministry of Labour & Employment, Govt of India) Mridula Ghai has turned into a powerful anthem for the journalist community. Titled Desh Ke Patrakrar, the poem restructured as a song, has been sung by noted Bollywood singers Alka Yagnik and Shaan, and was recently launched by the Working Journalists of India (WJI) in honour of the journalists who went beyond the call of duty to keep public informed as Covid raged. The song is produced and supported by Major Manjit Rajain of Tenon Group.

“This anthem will work as a catalyst to bring the sacrifices of the journalists to the forefront, and also work as a morale booster for youngsters who aspire to be journalists,” says Major Rajain.
