A few officers from the Gariahat police station of South Kolkata sang Anjan Dutt’s hit song Bela Bose, but changed the lyrics to reflect the theme of surviving the ongoing 21-day lockdown with hope. The fresh lyrics were reportedly written by Sergeant Debashish Mukhopadhyay, according to Sangbad Pratidin.

Other officers of Kolkata Police singing Pete Seeger’s We Shall Overcome at a residential neighbourhood on Wednesday, presumably inspired by videos of the police in Spain singing and dancing to spread cheer during a lockdown.
