About the song, Mahua Lahiri, director of Asha Audio said,"has an inherent strength to create a bond through the message of love, this mashup is a unique attempt to tune up the distorted strings."In this very moment our society is badly in the need of restoration of faith and peace. The Syrian war has seriously shocked and overwhelmed us. It's our homage to all the departed souls," she added. 'Oi Mahasindhur Opar Theke', is a very special song in the history of Bengali music and finds meaning even today owing to its anti-war narrative.
 
Written by legendary Dwijendralal Ray in 1911, for his historical play 'Chandragupta', the song had gone viral then, as it clearly threw a message to come sharp to the shore where there is no death, no decay, where everlasting youth prevails all around humanity. On the other hand 'Yada Yada Hi Dharmasya' is a hymn from 'Gita' where there is an underlying narrative on and about faith which teaches renunciation and is responsible for the elevation and well-being of
human beings.
 
It says literally, whenever in the passage of time, when faith gets weakened or is under attack, and whenever adharma spreads without control it is then that 'I' reincarnates to restore faith. When all-pervasive materialism invades the hearts of human souls, an answering manifestation of wisdom and righteousness is essential to restore equilibrium. The recent escalation in violence in Eastern Ghouta, in the suburbs of Syria, has left thousands dead with children being the worst victims. The mashup, through the universal language of music, tries to spread the message of peace transcending cultural and social boundaries.(UNI)
