‘Harvest Track’ offers gratitude to Almighty God for good harvest, peace and prosperity of the community living in the villages. The whole feel of the track is happy and is based on north eastern part of the country, specifically Shillong, which is known for its vast green fields. The second track, ‘Journey of the Truth’ is an inspiring song about truth and hope and gives the feel of a place like Rajasthan, which is close to the desert and has scarcity of water. It revolves around the struggle of a common man for want of water but at the end it leaves the listener with reviving hope. The last track, ‘Silence is Bliss’ is a soulful and spiritually uplifting track. Bliss, a twin to happiness is achieved through silence. It is said that silence says it all. Thus, the art of silence leads to eternal human happiness.
Subhash Ghai, Founder & Chairman, WWI himself visited the set and greeted the musicians who clicked pictures with him while congratulating him for setting up such a massive campus with global standards and technology. Inresponse Ghai thanked them and said, “It gives me immense pleasure to see our students work with such passion and perfection with the living legends of the Indian music industry.”
