Guwahati: Assam singer and music composer Mayuri Rajbonshi Rajbaruah released a song ‘PARINDA’ on empowerment of women on the occasion of International Women’s Day. The song was released on Tuesday at Mahabahu Brahmaputra Heritage Centre.

With direction and cinematography done by renowned cinematographer Parasher Baruah, the song is composed and penned by Mayuri herself with the music produced by Bollywood singer Raaj J Konwar. The release event was graced by actor Barsha Rani Bishaya, actor Chetana Das, singer Tarali Sharma, singer Anindita Paul, Dr. Reema Das Mallik, Anurita Hazarika (North East Network), and other good wishers supporting the cause.

The event also featured a photo exhibition by Parasher Baruah and an installation artwork of huge wings designed and conceptualized by Mayuri.

“I have experienced a lot of women suffer due to societal pressure and, through this, I want to raise awareness among women just to remind them how strong they truly are to rise above any adversity,” Mayuri told EastMojo.

“This story is about every woman. We have all gone through something or the other at different stages of our life, as a girl child or as a teenage girl with body-shaming; all this societal pressure. Through this song, I want to urge women to break free!” added Mayuri.

Mayuri’s song ‘Parinda’ speaks the stories of various women braving the odds to chase their dreams. It’s a tale of every woman who has overcome obstacles, societal pressures, trials and tribulations to stand out and shine.

The main characters played in the music video of Parinda are Adira Rajbaruah and Mahira Rajbaruah, Chetana Das, Arati Baruah, Anindita Das Nath, Bhabishya Nath And Bagmita Chabra. 

Being in the social work field and being a woman with a “never giving up” attitude, Mayuri wants to convey the message that women should never give up on their dreams, desires, and goals because of the unlimited duties and expectations from their environment/ society. 

Through the song, Mayuri said she wants to remind everyone that they have got their wings intact, ready to rise above any adversity with their inner strength, self-belief and breaking the shackles of the past and rise like the phoenix to reach glory.

A social research consultant, author, and live portrait artist, Mayuri makes her art at the Guwahati Heritage Centre every weekend which earned her the title of the “Artist under the mango tree” by the GMDA.

For the last 17 years, she has been working towards transforming the lives of marginalized women and children ( like tribal women, women living in slums, street children, slum children, children of commercial sex workers) through livelihood and sustainable development programmes.

Mayuri has also represented India many a times to present her research papers on various social issues. Her recent book is on intellectual disability named “Impact Assessment of Om Creations Trust” published in Research Gate, America.
