Composed by noted music director Shravan Rail Geet “Indian Railways, we love Indian Railways” will be now played at the beginning of every railway function. It is a 3-minuted song with visuals of several trains run by the Indian Railways.
“Songs like war cries play an imp role in galvanising the organisation. Rail Geet is an ode to our employees and fellow citizens for whom we all work. It will give them the spirit of marching ahead and working unitedly for the growth of Indian Railways,” Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu while launching the song.
He said that symbols in our country play a very important role in motivating and inspiring people and this song will be such a symbol for all railwaymen and rail users.
