‘Jeet Jayenge hum’
The nearly two-minute-long video clip features Kumar, beautifully crooning the song. “Zindagi har kadam ek nayi jang hai. Jeet jaayenge hum, tu agar sang hai. Hausla na chhod, kar saamna jahaan ka. Woh badal raha hai, ek rang aasman ka. Yeh shikayat ka nahin, yeh fateh ka rang hai,” he sings. Meanwhile, the ITBP used the opportunity to reinforce their plea for the public to adhere to proper public safety measures including social distancing, hygiene inter alia.
