Imphal: Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh on Wednesday released a new music video based on coronavirus awareness titled Akiba Laanda Amani, meaning a ‘fearful battle’, at the CM’s secretariat in state capital Imphal.
Written by noted lyricist Narendra Ningomba and sung by playback singer Oinam Swamikumar, the music was produced with an aim to create awareness among the general public on the government’s advisories to contain coronavirus pandemic.
Through music, the video also aims to spread messages on the importance of staying indoors, maintaining hygiene and social distancing to curb the deadly virus which has affected over 5,000 people and claimed more than 100 lives in the country so far.
Speaking at the launch, Singh praised the efforts of the music fraternity and different sections of society in creating awareness on COVID-19.
The music is also about letting the public know about how medical workers, armed forces and media persons are on the frontline of the battle against the deadly virus.
The music is produced by M Chanu Imoinu of Sileima Productions and directed by Rhythm Thiyam.
Deputy chief minister Y Joykumar Singh along with other cabinet ministers and MLAs were also present during the launching ceremony.
Here’s the complete lyrics:
Society will never forget
Doctor, nurses, police and journalist
You with sacrificial spirit
Offering our respect
A fearful battle
Coming to snatch our life
A new disease
With no drug to cure
Carefulness is the only life saver
Restrict within our homes
Me, you and all, abiding government advisories
Let’s save myself and others
Corona comes surreptitiously
Shelter our life watchfully
Let’s confine in our homes
We will surely win
In defeating corona
Leave away the differences
Can’t run away in fear
Can’t save by running
Have to fight
Avoid crowded space
Corona can’t infect
Confining in our homes
We will avoid COVID-19.
