Diwali 2020: US singer Mary Millben wins hearts as her 'Om Jai Jagadish Hare' echoes syncretism
Mary donning a saree in Rajasthani style walks into a Church, lights a candle, then she starts singing 'Om Jai Jagadish Hare' to Jesus on the crucifix.
With people wanting to chase away 2020 really soon for reason no secret, 2020 should also be remembered for teaching people to see the silver lining even in the most dreadful times.
One such silver lining was noticed and widely appreciated by netizens.
Pop artist Mary Millben became an overnight sweetheart for many Indians, her rendition of 1994's devotional hit 'Om Jai Jagadish Hare' once again became an instant favourite of many Indians.
Mary donning a saree in Rajasthani style walks into a Church, lights a candle, then she starts singing 'Om Jai Jagadish Hare' to Jesus on the crucifix. It strikes a chord with every single person who desires unity and a global brotherhood.
Also the subtle spiritual message imparted through the song is, God is omnipresent and is the same in every place that is pious, only languages addressing Him are different. This message strikes at the heart of bigotry and divisiveness.
The location of this song is so serene and relaxing, over and above the equally captivating visuals is so pleasant on the eyes.
Many twitteratis greeted Mary for such a melliflous rendition of this song.
