Today, let me refresh the memories of this amazing song from Soorya Puthran, so relevant in today’s times. Although the song is basically posing some questions to various species of the animal kingdom, the visuals suggest that it happens in some Bala Gokulam summer camp, teaching patriotism to pre-teen children.
