Nerul: Ramdas Patil Nerulkar, a security official in CIDCO, an accredited vocalist of Akashwani Doordarshan, a Special Executive Magistrate, an ideal employee awardee by the State government and the winner of the first Bhajan Samrat contest organized by the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation, recently recorded a social awareness message, sung by him in the form of a classical bhajan in the local Agri language, in the wake of the prevailing lockdown measure announced by the government to combat the COVID 19 pandemic.

The song is conceptualized by the Agri community leader Jayendra Khune and appeals to citizens to abide by the government’s appeal to stay put indoors and wash hands properly and also prays to the popular Agri-Koli deity, Goddess Ekvira, to protect the community.

Ramdas Patil’s rendition is not only melodious, but also loud and clearly appealing.
