Prithvi Manthan

Apart from being the only song from India to be backed by the UN body, this Music video has several firsts. For the 1st time in India, a Music Video on Pollution has been built at this scale combining CGI, Choreography, Performance and Art. For the 1st time, conceptualized a concept has been musically fused into Tandava Stotram

Prithvi Manthan (Skimming of the Earth): Is an analogy for over exploitation of natural resources to meet our greed and unsustainable lifestyle. In the process, like ‘Halaahal’ in Samudra Manthan, Green House Gases and Pollutants are deadly by-products, which has grown to such proportions that the very existence of humankind now stands jeopardized.

In the song we beseech divine intervention from Lord Shiva to absorb these poisons or give us collective and individual strength to imbibe this venom that has been our own creation. The musical is composed in the backdrop of Shiv Tandav Stotram.

The Tandav is an energetic and virile dance by Lord Shiva to the beats of the Damru, the two headed drum and Shiv Tandav Strotram is a high-pitched rhythmic chanting of the hymns written and composed by Ravana - the Demon King to appease Lord Shiva and seek his blessings.
