Vande 2: DPS, Indiestrings team up for tribute to unity

DPS International School students performed a piece coordinated by Anand Dhamelia, the school's music guru, and featuring about 500 students, teachers and the school choir singing in English, Hindi and 10 other Indian languages. Singapore-based production house IndieStrings captured their performance for the second installment of their music video series, titled Vande II: Hum Ek Hai, Sada ke liye (We are One, Always).

"At school, our students learn to sing to give us all blissful feelings and joy. These feelings cannot be described through any language," said Col C Gill, principal of DPS International School, Singapore.
