Entertainment and sports guru Shailendra Singh has always found a unique route to every one of his projects. With a massive success. Anthem4Good which United 1.4 billion Indians the world over, he now embarks on a new and purposeful journey. Commencing on a historic road rally right from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, Shailendra will travel the length and breadth of India with an ambition to Unite Indians with the pure tune of this anthem ONE INDIA MY INDIA.
Of the strong belief that all Indians are one, Shailendra started his journey on Gandhiji’s 150th birthday with the aim of covering 7170KMs, 19 cities in just 18 days and thousands of untold stories. Singh today reached the national capital, Delhi with just a few cities away from Kashmir.
He met people from all walks of life, interview heroes who have been celebrated and those whose victories have never reached the world, visit armed forces, agriculture villages, offbeat towns and steam his journey live on Facebook and YouTube in order to take viewers on the journey with him and showcase the cultural richness of our country, while focusing on some of the important sites related to the life and legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, Singh’s strong belief in the varied offerings of this rich Country gives him direction and purpose.
Shailendra draws attention to recent statements from people like U2 frontman, Bono – “ India bought this idea to the world that non- violence is more powerful than nuclear energy, armies, navies and British Empire. Non-violence is an idea that gave India a moral high ground in setting up the greatest democracy on earth.”
Shailendra Singh on his journey said, “I have started this journey with a group of young boys 20-23 years old and I am very shocked, Shrey who is 20 years old roam around with all the equipment, set them up everywhere, 20-21 is manan and Vishnu is 23 and I am shocked that their heart and thought are below the people of my age. Their observing power is mind-blowing! Manan, in the night, edit each city’s video in the car, I did whatever I did but the way he captures emotions are incredible and vibrant. The youth of our country is very strong and what’s important is to give them the proper knowledge of our history and culture and not just the fun part. Rather than taking visa’s and going out of the country, first visit our country, you’ll be amazed. The youngers of our country are beyond imagination and they’ll do great if have the proper knowledge.” He also added,” Desh ko jaano to!”
By the end of his journey, he will be sharing 200 episodes and a 90-100 mins movie for free for everyone to feel the love and be proud of our country and it’s culture.
Shailendra Singh’s One India My India / Ek Bharat, Mera Bharat Anthem4Good, which he co-created with India’s most beloved composer, Mithoon and released on 23rd April 2019. The anthem has won hearts globally and has planted itself firmly as a unifying anthem in the minds of listeners. Thrilled with the impact and response received from the people, Shailendra wants to celebrate his success with every Indian.
He says, “ I created the Anthem4Good to remind us that regardless of religion, caste or creed, we are all Indians. Our hearts beat the same. And the only thing that truly unites us, is love. I went to the streets of India – across 21 cities – to shoot the video for the anthem, and now, I am taking it back there, to the people, to spread more love“.
