'School Chale Hum', Nestle prompts girls

MUMBAI: Nestle India has recreated the iconic song, School Chale Hum, originally produced by Bharatbala. Through this song, Nestle India aims to draw support towards the corporate social initiative, #EducateTheGiriChild in association with Nanhi Kali, one of the largest NGOs imparting education to underprivileged girl children across India.

School Chale Hum was initially composed in 2006 in support of the Indian government programme, Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, and was produced by BharatBala Productions. 'Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan' aims at boosting the objective of universalisation of elementary education. However, the situation continues to be grim with 20 million girls still dropping out of school each year. Nestle India decided to bring some of the most renowned names in the industry to re-interpret the song to support girl child education.

The musical trio of Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy put together a new music composition along with lyricist Anvita Dutt and singer Harshdeep Kaur. Their intention has been to give the original composition, a new life. Young girls from the Nanhi Kali programme, the partners for this corporate initiative also participated by singing the song along with the lead singer.

Nestle India chairman and managing director Suresh Narayanan said, "Music is one of the most powerful and influential means of uniting people for a cause. This song represents the collective societal objective to spread awareness and evangelize support for the cause." The composers team said, "Education is the way forward for progress."

Bharat Bala said, "We need to do everything we can to make quality education an immediate reality for every girl child across the country. Let's come together to give a voice to our youngest and most curious minds."
