This is an old recording when I was learning to arrange and record my own tracks. I still would love to arrange tracks but the major hindrance is the lack of a tabla player who could play beats that I could record and use in a track. I have quite a fair sized bank of Tabla/Dholuk loops but their use satisfied me in only a few songs. Those loops lack the bols that are needed in our songs. Creating a track is too time consuming and also because access to most old and new tracks is so easy now a days, I began to loose interest. But I love to play keyboards and occasionally use them to fix or add something to the existing tracks.
This song has lyrics from the times in Sub-continent when change was desired on a large scale within the society and it's governance. A big overhaul was needed in the justice system. Many progressive writers were born and raised during this time, who with their work tried to educate the masses for their rights. By how much things changed and by how much happier the people of its state are is a different story.
The female voice you will hear in this song is also sung by me. I recorded my vocals through a preset for female voice on my keyboard synthesizer but the characteristic voice is of a Western girl so I tried to keep her a bit subdued:). I hope you will enjoy this oldie in my voice.
