Dharmendra Das Mahant, a differently-abled boy from Chhattisgarh, captured the hearts of many people online with his song. With perfect intonation and clarity, the boy is heard singing ‘Arpa Pairi Ke Dhar‘, the state song of Chhattisgarh. As more netizens started attuning to his song, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel also noticed it.
Lauding Mahant, Baghel posted the video on Twitter and it has been doing rounds on social media since. “”My self Dharmendra Das Mahant”… listen, he is singing the state song of Chhattisgarh. I felt like I will keep listening to the song. Lots of blessings and love,” wrote Baghel in Hindi.
