Submissions are invited for Deshbhakti Geet Writing Competition 2021 by Ministry of Culture, Govt of India. The last date of level 1 submission is 1 January 2022.
Life desires continuous progress, desires development, desires to surpass heights. However much science may advance, however much the pace of progress may be, however grand the buildings may be, life feels incomplete. But when song-music, art, drama-dance, literature is added to these, their aura , their liveliness increases many times.
In a way if life has to be meaningful, all these too are as necessary….that is why it is said that all these forms act as a catalyst in our lives, act to enhance our energy. The role of songs – music and other art forms is major in developing the inner self of humans, in creating the path of journey of our inner self. And another strength of these is that neither time nor boundaries can limit them…not even beliefs or discordance can limit these.
At the time when our nation gained Independence, several songs, ballads, and hymns written in the many dialects and languages of our vibrant nation and punctuated by the music and sound of unique instruments from different regions of the country, brought every Indian together!
Patriotic songs have always played an important role in boosting our morale and fostering a spirit of love towards the nation. This, is a tradition that has been our strength whenever we have been called upon to come together for the national cause.
Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a New India is on the rise – one that takes pride in our nation’s many achievements and its boundless diversity. Not only are we becoming more aware, but are also increasingly taking pride in our historical landmarks as also our present-day achievements.
Be it the mighty Himalayas, the great expanse of the Rann of Kutch or the beautiful Ghats that make up our coastline – the diverse geography, rich history and vibrant demography of India gives each of us a different reason for our affection and admiration towards Maa Bharati.
As the nation marks its 75th year of Independence, let’s rekindle the sense of pride in our collective identity. In this period of Amrit Kaal, let us write new patriotic songs which will reverberate with the spirit of New India. The colours of one’s art, culture, song, music must certainly be filled in Amrit Mahotsav too.
Participate in the ‘Deshbhakti Geet’ contest open for people across India.
Be it adolescents or adults, love and devotion towards our motherland has always found a special corner in all our hearts. In an effort to give voice to India’s patriotic soul, every Indian between the ages of 16-45 is invited to send in their entries here.
The competition will be held in four stages to incentivize local flavours to emerge and be declared winners and also have the chance to compete at district, state and national level.
- Tehsil / Taluka Level: Each district will organise these competitions at the Tehsil / Taluka levels. The competition at the Tehsil / Taluka levels will be conducted digitally by uploading the composition along with a few other details.
- District Level: The best entries from Tehsil / Taluka levels will be selected and will be declared as District Level Winners by a specially constituted jury. Winners at the district level will advance to the State / UT level competition.
- State / UT Level: All district winners in a State / UT will compete for the State / UT level prizes. Each State / UT will then select the state level winners to be selected by a specially constituted jury.
- National level: The State / UT level winners will compete in the final national level competition and from among these participants, national winners will be selected by a specially constituted Jury.
These patriotic songs can be in the mother tongue, can be in national language, and can be written in English too. But it is essential that these creations reflect the thought of new India; inspired by the current success of the country, it should be such that fuels the country’s resolve for the future.
