GP (2006.05.14): The Hills are alive with the sound of 'Nauchami Narayan'

DEHRADUN: On 10 May, a musical VCD silently invaded Uttaranchal. This musical album should leave people, especially the admirers of Chief Minister ND Tiwari, gasping for breath. ‘Nauchami Narayan’, the creative product of renowned folk singer and poet Narendra Negi is the latest sensation in Uttaranchal.

Narendra Negi has received plaudits from commoner and connoisseur, alike, the words and the concept of the VCD. The album makes a scathing attack on governance in Uttaranchal. It casts a satirical eye particularly on the unsavoury and sordid aspects that form the background of this governance.
