Kumbh Mela is one of the major pilgrimage and festivals of Bharat. According to Hindu history, Kumbh Mela has its roots to the days when the Devtas and Rakshas conjointly produced nectar of immortality. Both had agreed to complete the task together and decided to share it in half. The Devtas forcibly ceased the pot while its safety was entrusted onto the four Gods - Brahaspati, Surya, Shani, and Chandra. The demons chased the Devtas for many days, and during this time the drops of Kumbh dropped in the four places of India namely - Prayagraj, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nashik. Since then, these four places are believed to have acquired mystical powers. It is believed that during the period of Kumbh, the rivers turn into Amrit and so pilgrims from across the globe visit the Kumbh Mela to bathe in the essence of attaining purity and immortality.
While Bharat deals with the rising Covid-19 cases due to nationwide second-wave, Apeksha Films & Music brings Kumbh mela in the form of ‘Kumbh Bhajan’ in the divine voice of Bhajan Samrat Anup Jalota to the homes of devotees.
Talking about the company’s latest release, Ajay Jaswal of Apeksha Films & Music says, “This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has become very difficult for many pilgrims to visit Haridwar, the site of the Kumbh Mela observance. Hence, we thought of giving a glimpse and feel of this religious festival through 'Kumbh Bhajan' and who else except the voice of India’s Bhajan Samrat could be the best voice for this devotional song. I hope devotees enjoy this bhajan as much as we enjoyed making it.”
While talking about his latest Bhajan, legendary singer Anup Jalota says, “The magnificent event of Kumbh of faith has a religious and spiritual significance. ‘Kumbh Bhajan’ released by Apeksha Films & Music on its YouTube Channel gives glimpse on Kumbh Mela, its history and spiritual significance.
