NAMOH means to Salute in respect to the ONE who has created this great celestial dance and drama of life and death, Salutation to the creator of the Earth, the Netherworlds, the Seas and the Oceans, the Sun, the Moon the Stars and the Skies, Salutation to One who has created this mesmerizing world – the World that belongs to HIM and HIM alone.
It’s a Salutation to the Winds, the Seasons, the Fragrance, the benevolent creator of Love, One who runs all the affairs of the world, to the Provider, the most Powerful. Salutation of gratitude towards the One who created this Light, Salutation to One who is above all, who is with-in and with-out, One who is Unique, One who is devoid of Sorrow and Happiness- the Almighty Lord God who is All there is.
Daler Mehndi composed NamohNamoh in RaagBhairavi, while working on his Pop album RaulaPai Gaya. He co-wrote this song with Pt. KiranMishra and ShahabAllahabadi .
It’s a gratitude song and a song that praises the virtuoso Almighty – a small little way of saying ‘Thank you’ quips Daler. The song is infectiously energetic which is Daler’s signature, with the hook words NamohNamoh easy to sing along, again Daler’s USP but what is interesting is the way he has weaved and fused very traditional Sanskrit words with Urdu words – making it a song which is a fantabulous display of sovereignty and unity as also showcasing his innate self of a spiritual seeker although he covers himself safely and strongly with the strong colors and dose of pop entertainment.
