The Uttarakhand police force is all set for a makeover. It has decided to acquire new colours, new credo and a brand new anthem.
These men in uniform have penned the anthem by themselves, showing their poetic side to the world. The two-and-a-half minute song was released with much fanfare at a function in Dehradun to mark the Police Day.
The function consisted of a dog show and horse riding. But, the show stealer was the brand new police anthem.
And every policeman is very excited about the song.
”This song inspires our soldiers and instills in them vigour and energy,” says Jaiveer Singh, a soldier.
The soldiers feel proud when they sing this song. ”The song inspires as well as it unites the jawans,” says A K Arya, another soldier.
And the reason for all the celebrations is that the seven-year-old state has recently passed the Police Act, officially launching their law-enforcing agency.
”We have got a new Police Act on the 19th of March. After that, we thought we should have new colours and we have also given a new song to our jawans, which will inspire us to achiever greater glory,” said Subhash Joshi, DGP, Uttarakhand
This new song for the country’s youngest police force will perhaps inspire it to scale new frontiers of a truly people friendly police – one which stands for friendship, service and security.
