Ghaziabad: A parody based on Kishore Kumar’s popular song Ye Jo Mohabbat Hai, is going viral these days.
Written by journalist Karun Kumar and sung by Dr. Amit Kumar, a physician, the parody, aimed at educating common people about the importance of lockdown, has taken netizens by storm. Recently, globalbihari had carried a video of Dr. Amit appealing to the government to make adequate provisions of safety kits for the medical staff in hospitals that had become COVID-19 hotspots.
So what made this Bihari duo click, considering neither of them is a professional singer or a lyricist? Though Dr. Amit was in the past a participant in Indian Idol!
“Besides being a doctor, I am also passionate about singing. I was also selected in Indian Idol in its very first episode. When Karun contacted me over phone, he told me about this song and that was wonderful. The lyrics were superb and I thought that also being a medical practitioner, it goes with our idea of lockdown. So I got excited and immediately gave my consent to sing this song. The beauty is that I recorded this song with the help of Karaoke music at my home without any editing. I am glad the the message is now becoming viral and I hope this will give a positive message to the people to remain at home or indoors and maintain social distancing during lockdown,” Dr. Amit said.
Karun told globalbihari that he was contemplating ways of making people more aware about the benefits of lockdown and the precautions to be taken while fighting Corona virus. “I thought of writing a song based on a popular track and was able to do this. I knew Dr. Amit who is a good doctor and also a great singer. He has also been to Indian Idol. So he was the singer in my mind and wrote this song keeping him in my mind. He being a doctor and more aware about the medical reasons behind the lockdown, I had to be very careful about my lyrics. I am glad that I could write it. It is also my tribute to all Corona warriors — doctors like Dr. Amit, policemen who are doing terrific job.”[the_ad_placement id=”adsense-in-feed”]
