The concert will kick off with Amitabh Bachchan reciting the lines penned by the President.

"The prose has been changed a bit to fit into a lyrical format for musical rendition," Rehman told reporters on Monday.
"We also have a Hindi version of the song," he said.

The one-and-half-hour concert will also feature other selected musical pieces, including 'Maa Tujhe Salaam', 'Gurus of Peace,' and 'Chhoti Si Asha' as well as a dance rendition by Tanushree.

"The concert will be different from my other concerts as it would focus on children," Rehman said.
