Do you know the one common thing among the likes Falguni Nayar, Indra Nooyi, Ritesh Agarwal, Sachin Bansal, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk? It’s their designation, which reads ‘Entrepreneurs.’
And their job description, ‘Entrepreneurship’ is technically not even a structured profession. It’s not just the journey, and it’s definitely not a job. It’s a process. A process of getting up every day, fighting the odds and challenges to build that one thing you aspire. A process of finding the problems and building the solutions. A process of making things happen, building teams, and uplifting others. And finally, a process that demands bone and sweat, not easy at all – yet chosen by some with the utmost compassion.
August 21st is a day dedicated to these hustlers around the globe as World Entrepreneurs’ Day. A day to contemplate the contributions of many such hackers who are paving the way for a better world. This year around, Harshil Karia (Founder of Schbang) is paying tribute to all the entrepreneurs, their journey, struggles, emotions, and spirit – with his beautiful song “Utth Jaa Rey”. The song is released by Ranveer Allahabadia (BeerBiceps) on his channel.
The lyrics of the song go like
“Jab badhta rahe tere dil ka bhar,
Jab lamhe me ho dard hazaar,
us dard ko pi le, dard ko si le ….
aur utth jaa re, banjare rasta lamba hai tera”
which translates to “Even when the heart is drowning (with aspirations), when every moment has thousand setbacks. Sip your pain, make it your strength. Get up, thy wanderer, for you have miles to go.”
This 3 minute song is destined to take every entrepreneur on a roller-coaster ride of emotions. Each line of this song sends a thousand goose bumps, not because of its choice of words and composition. Because it is true. Each verse depicts the journey, the moments, the phases you go through as an Entrepreneur. It will make you cry, smile, laugh and feel proud. It is an ode to the spirit and dedication and sends a strong message of getting up, and keep moving. It’s as if an entrepreneur’s life is woven into words and iced with music.
The creators of the song are serial entrepreneurs themselves, and that’s visible in the way song has come out so captivating. The people who have been on this journey will relate to every single frame. The video features snippets of entrepreneurs like Priyanka Chopra, Ronnie Screwvala, Ritesh Agarwal, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Tanmay Bhat – who have all set an example by always moving forward despite the setbacks and societal nuance.
Our Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, has time and again stated the prominent role Entrepreneurs would play in building the trillion-dollar economy. This song has come out at just the right time. This is not only a tribute to those who have made it big but also a strong message to all the aspiring ones. Now it is time to get up, for we have a long way to go.To every entrepreneur reading this, remember, it’s a process. You might fail, and you may fall. But you will shine and you will grow – it’s about time, “Utth Jaa Rey”!
The song is available on all major streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Prime Music, Wynk Music, Gaana.
