“To celebrate 75 years of Indian Independence, I joined 12 refugee singers (living in India) from Afghanistan, Cameroon, Myanmar and Sri Lanka and sang our National Anthem. The refugees expressed their gratitude for the kindness love and support they have received from all Indians,” Kej tweeted.

Former UN environment chief and Norwegian politician Erik Solheim too lauded the video. “India at 75! India lives in the hearts of young people, from countries in the Indian volatile neighbourhood, who have found refuge, hope and future in the ever welcoming embrace of Mother India. Warm thanks my friend Ricky Kej!” he tweeted. (Colombo Gazette / Agencies)
