Indian PM Modi pens garba song 'Maadi' for Navratri
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has penned down a Garba song, titled 'Maadi', composed by Meet brothers, Manmeet Singh and Harmeet Singh.
Speaking on the opportunity to compose the song, the Meet Brothers said: "This song was like a gift for us from the goddess. We got 48 hours to compose this and we made this song. We really want to meet him and hope we will meet soon. We never thought that we would get this song. We are thankful to our team for helping us in composing this song."
They added, "He needed a composer to instantly compose the song in 48 hours and contacted three or four composers and finally he liked our songs. While choosing the composer, he didn't think of Sikh or Punjabi and treated a musician like a musician."
Praising the PM, they also said, "He is among the world's number 1 personalities and he is our favourite. While working with him, it felt like we were working with a professional. We are lucky to have got this opportunity and see a new side of him. He is attached to Indian culture and tradition."
PM Modi also thanked Meet brothers via a post on X.

In his response to Bhanushali's tweet, the Prime Minister thanked Bhanushali, Bagchi and the team of Jjust Music for the "lovely rendition" of the Garba he had "penned years ago."
