Pankaj Jha, a PhD in Sanskrit, sung a famous 90s song ‘Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi’ in the ancient tongue. Still thinking, what does that mean? Well, he translated the whole song in Sanskrit. When asked how this idea came to his mind he said,
I came upon the idea in class. A student wanted to know if Sanskrit dealt only with old stories and shlokas. I told him there were songs as well. The kid then challenged me to render a Sanskrit version of the recently released song Dheere Dheere Se Meri Zindagi by Honey Singh. I translated the entire song in the class.
After coming to Delhi he realized the potential of technology and hence, got his song recorded in a studio. Well, people are actually appreciating this unique thought and therefore, Pankaj’s music video is going viral!
