There are many ways to show the women in your life how much you love them. But none can match the intimate connect of a sweet melody. On the occasion of Women’s Day, Hindustan Times will release a special anthem titled, ‘Hey woman, we love the girl in you’, which is an ode to the spirit of womanhood. The bilingual song implores women to bring to the fore the free-spirited and unencumbered child that resides inside her. ‘Hey woman…’ also serves as a reminder for every woman who — in the process of playing a mother, daughter, wife, daughter-in-law or friend — might have forgotten the little girl that she essentially is.

The song has been written and composed by Vineet Panchhi and sung by two fresh voices, Amit Vishnoi and Sachin Thapa. The catchy melody and meaningful lyrics have been aptly punctuated by harmonised choral voices and instrumentation that add a unique texture to the track.

Panchhi says, “It is a song by men, for women. I’ve been inspired by all the women in my life — my mother, wife and daughter — and I’m amazed at the way they can handle so much stress with a smiles on their faces. The song was initially sung in a female voice, but we decide to change that and make men sing it. After all, we owe this to women.”

KaranKaran Johar
“It’s a great initiative by HT. We can never do enough for women because they are the reason for all of our existence. Celebrating women shouldn’t be limited to an occasion.

It should be a norm for all of us.In my life too, what I am today is because of my mother. Women are truly the stronger of the two sexes, especially in terms of emotional prowess.”

John Abraham
“The song is written and composed very well. It’s very catchy too. Not many people outside of a publication know when Women’s Day is; and it is important that they do. For mankind, every day is Women’s Day. What HT has created is awesome and the fact that it was readied in seven days is great. The music director, Vineet Panchhi, is extremely talented. The lyrics are great and his voice is lovely. The initiative taken by HT to run it through various platforms is also awesome. At least someone’s thought of it and you guys are the first ones. Congratulations!”

Kiran Rao
“While serenading the woman, it encourages her to speak up and seize the day. The HT Women’s Day song is written to put a swing in everyone’s step.”

Akshay Kumar
“This is a great initiative. The woman is the most important and the strongest pillar of strength in every man’s life. The song truly encompasses the magic and message of how important women really are.”

Ajay Devgn
“I think the track, ‘Hey woman, we love the girl in you,’ is a fantastic initiative from the Hindustan Times, motivating not only society, but also women. It encourages them to be their true selves. The buoyant tune and lyrics inspire women to believe and have faith in themselves, to shape a happy life of their own, without men or society controlling or influencing them. Celebrating the essence of a woman, the song is a fresh and positive piece of music, which will definitely strike a chord in people’s hearts everywhere.”
