Mother’s Day Special! Fireman pays video tribute to all mothers

2 min read

Mysuru: When the world is paying its tribute to mother on Mother’s Day in its own way, a man from a different media has did it in an artistic way. A fireman at Saraswatipuram fire station in the city has written and composed a video song as an apt offering for the day. It can be viewed on-https://youtu.be/Zler8HoO3As

Nandan D R who has developed a penchant for writing for the past three years has been penning poems as and when he finds time from his busy schedule. It was how the idea of a video song  sprouted in him and has did multitasking like- writing lyrics, lending voice to the song, besides directing and cutting the video using the images of mothers with their toddlers to convey the message of the day.
Nandan who had a tryst with literature since his nascent days, penned a poem only recently and decided to make a video album. He helmed all the the works and posted the video on YouTube on the eve of Mother’s Day on Saturday. The video titled- Amma in Kannada has already received a good response. It starts with- Nooru nooru saviraaru devare bandaru…
Nandan told Mysoorunews.com “I have a strong desire for penning my thoughts and am grateful to my mother. She had once met with an accident and was in intensive care unit (ICU). This had made me upset and was very concerned about her. Just before the lockdown was announced, the lyrics was written and everyday after duty hours and during free time, I spent time sometimes stretching up to night to fine tune the album”.
Being a part of the department of fire and emergency services, we work round the clock, without any break- like for holidays and festivals-as we have to be ready for emergency. It’s also the topic of my next album as I want to show the people the amount of risk involved in combating fire mishaps and the risks the firefighters endure in the line of duty, Nandan said. 
Nandan humbly recalled the support of his officers- K P Gururaj  District fire officer (DFO), H Raju (DFO), Nagaraj Urs fire station officer (FSO ), Srinidhi (superintendent ) and Veena Pandit (swara sangeetha music).
