"The song narrates the contribution of 'corona warriors' especially doctors, police, CAPFs, armed forces personnel and all others in ensuring that citizens of the country are safe from the pandemic," an ITBP spokesperson said.

"The song plays out the emotions, initiative and commitment of the agencies in the fight against coronavirus in the country," he said.

It also talks about hope and trust that the country will win this battle against the virus that has infected lakhs across the globe and claimed thousands of lives.
