Seventy five legendary musicians from all across India have come together to pay tribute to India's national anthem on Independence day.

Jaya Hey 2.0, currently on the YouTube channel for Ambuja Neotia Group, is a rendition of Rabindranath Tagore's full five verses of Bharat Bhagya Vidhata. Only the first verse, Jana Gana Mana, serves as India's national anthem.

The stirring video also includes shots of different parts of the country, showing off the diversity of Indian culture. It was conceptualised, music composed and directed by duo Sourendro Mullick and Soumyojit Das.

"The essence of India as a nation lies in her plurality and unity in diversity. Many have sacrificed their lives to give us our freedom. It is essential that every individual of this county remembers that and collectively make a conscious effort to keep the essence alive," said Ambuja Neotia chairman Harshavardhan Neotia told Hindustan Times.

"As a Group, we had earlier created a similar version of the complete song of Jana Gana Mana in collaboration with 39 performers. This year, paying tribute in reverence to the 75 years of Indian Independence, we have joined hands with 75 singers and musicians to seek inspiration in the words of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore," added Neotia.
