The Making of Tech Mahindra Anthem

Posted by: Debanjan Biswas On January 12, 2015 12:49 PM

The Dinner

Only a few lucky ones have a chance to interact with Hari Thalapalli. This time it turned out to be us! We had an opportunity to have dinner with him at Bhubaneswar. The meeting was followed by an acoustics performance of ‘Sweet Child O’ mine’ by Dev which made Hari fondly call him Axl Rose. Dev was supported by Ansuman’s classical vocals and Shovini’s charismatic 70’s classic vocals along with Siddartha’s musical genius on the guitar.

An Idea was Born

Hari was indeed quite impressed with the performance. An idea was born; an idea to create a brand new Tech Mahindra anthem; a first! He spelled out the challenge to the team which they sportingly accepted.

The Grind Begins

The fabulous five - Debanjan, Shovini, Rohit, Ansuman, Siddhartha started the grunt work.

With Siddhartha and Deb , quite the rockstars,  with a background in rock bands  and Ansuman, a professional composer in Eastern classical, composing the song was a breeze.

Shovini, a trained eastern classical singer was ecstatic to work on the first professional recording with others.

Composing the lyrics turned out to be equally easy as Rohit who is a national level debator with flair in writing and public speaking collaborated and co-wrote with Deb and Malini.

15 Days! Yes, in just 15 days the first draft was out for review. This background music was composed only using an acoustic guitar and piano!

Voila!! The Leaders loved it and we moved a step closer to the final version!

Rise On, Shine On was Live

‘Rise On, Shine On…’

It was a perfect amalgamation of Western vocals by Dev accompanied by Eastern layers by Shovini and Ansuman. Rohit, Malini and Dev did a wonderful job with the lyrics, capturing the true essence of being a TechMighty.

The final version was ready for unveiling.

And it was the closing ceremony of the Mission Innovation conference when the world at TechM saw the birth of its new anthem!
