Mumbai. Gulzar, who made classic films and wrote songs, released a poem on Friday appealing to people to get vaccinated. In a video released on the Instagram account of his NGO Aarushi, he is requesting people to get the vaccination done for the safety of himself and his family.
Gulzar has recited this poem requesting people to get vaccination:
‘The way to avoid Kovid is easy, get it installed, there is a vaccine.
You too will be safe, the country too. It is easy to live together.
Get this vaccine as soon as possible
Doctors, institutions have developed this vaccination, this vaccine by playing on their lives so that the human race can be saved.
Gulzar said that it is the duty of all of you to get vaccinated. It can protect the family of the shot shot, their neighbors, their society and the country. He said, ‘Think and see what a great work you are accomplishing by getting a vaccine. Get this vaccine as soon as you can. And explain not only to yourself but also to others, make them believe.
Last year, Gulzar collaborated with Vishal Bhardwaj and Rekha Bhardwaj for a few songs to spread the message of optimism, hope and caring for nature.
‘Meethi Meethi Hai, Very Beautiful Hai’ – This is how Gulzar describes the earth in his composition on coronavirus, ‘Dhoop Aane Do’, in the song. Gulzar shared this with us about how the song and collaboration came about, ‘I narrated it to Vishal, and he took it. The ideology is his own. We have decided that we will do more songs in this (pandemic) period. More songs and poems should be written about saving the environment and the earth. This is a global act.
