The Minister for Power, Shri Ramkrishna alias Sudin Dhavlikar released a new devotional video song on Devi Navdurga of Madkai titled “Maye mhaje Navdurge” on the eve of the Zatrotsava of the temple at Shree Navdurga Saunsthan, Madkai today.
Speaking on the occasion Shri Dhavlikar expressed happiness at the release of a beautiful song on Devi Navdurga and that it was a blessing that Shri John Aguiar writes such beautiful Hindu devotional songs. He said he follows Shri Aguiar and has been reading articles and poetry written by him. The Minister said his association with Shri Aguiar has been right from childhood and later college days though junior to him, he has seen the poetry grow with him right from the college days. Shri Dhavlikar also complimented the singer Shri Akshay Naik for its beautiful composition and Shri Uddhav Kerkar of “Eye Click” for the splendid videography. He said there is a need to support and nurture such talents.
Shri Aguiar said he has written several poems and Konkani songs but for the past three years he has been writing only Hindu devotional songs and today, it was his 15th devotional song. Though he had written on Lord Damodara, Lord Manguessh, Shree Shantadurga , Shree Mahalaxmi, he had never visited the temple of Navdurga in Madkai. When a friend suggested that he should write on this deity and that very same night words started flowing in his mind and he completed the song at 2.00 a.m in the morning. He thanked his team of Akshay Naik, Shri Uddhav Kerkar and Diksha Kerkar.
In his welcome speech earlier, Shri Akshay Naik explained about the song and said it was a satisfying walk with Shri Aguiar to do his songs which adds positive energy to him. He later proposed a vote of thanks.
