Har Ghar Tiranga: Har Ghar Tiranga anthem featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli and Prabhas was released by the Ministry of Education’s twitter handle recently. As India celebrates its 75th Independence Day on August 15, celebs also engaged in the patriotic fervour ahead of the glorious occasion. The video of the song depicts India’s ‘unity in diversity’ and the spirit of Indianness. The video was captioned as, “The HAR GHAR TIRANGA Anthem is here to give you goose-bumps & immerse you in the tricolour of patriotism! Tune in to it and evoke the profound emotions of the love for your motherland.” However, a certain section of netizens complained that the video didn’t conform to the song’s theme and could have been better with more inclusivity.

TIRANGA is Indeed in every Indian’s heart ❤️ & Soul, there is no need to show off like this and very shameful that no pic or video of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawahar Lal Nehru & other freedom fighter.
It’s nothing but marketing stunt for MODI..
There should be employment in every home.

Har Ghar Tiranga anthem went viral in no time and like any other song it also got all kinds of reactions. While some netizens blamed the government, others pointed out that in order to represent ‘unity in diversity’ celebs from all faiths and communities must feature in the music video. Apart from representation of minorities and inclusivity, some users opined that Mahatma Gandhi and India’s first PM Jawharlal Nehru’s picture or video isn’t shown in the song.
While it’s important to advocate inclusivity and express dissent in a liberal democracy. It is equally important to stay united as citizens to work towards nation building as well. What do you think?
