Teri Mitti Tribute is totally apt for the current situations and hits rights where it hurts the most. The lyrics are so hauntingly beautiful that you are left with a lump in your throat. “Sarhad par jo wardi khaaki thi, ap uska rang safed hua…” and “Vo nabz nahi phir thamne di, jis nabz ko humne thaam liya…” – the song is studded with lines which will live with you for long.
The video also uses the viral still of a doctor holding the map of India like a newborn baby – all secured and protected in her arms. Your thoughts on the video?
