Within few days of release only it has gained 7.3M views on youtube. The song is more like a short film. Awareness about racism and caste system is the main theme of the song.
The song “Damai Maharaj” was written, composed, performed, and acted in by Saput, demonstrating his range of abilities. The song is a potent allegory for the pervasive caste-based prejudice that still exists today. Saput challenges long-standing biases with unyielding conviction, claiming that no caste can ever define a person’s worth, value, or faith. Every person is born equal, deserving of respect, and unencumbered by prejudice, and the song resonates with this universal reality.
