It would be a proud moment for India at the upcoming Tokyo Paralympics when India would field its largest contingent ever, with 54 para-athletes. Ahead of the competition, Union Sports Minister Anurag Thakur has launched the official theme song of the Indian contingent for the competition.

The song is named 'Kar De Kamaal Tu' and has been sung by para-cricketer Sanjeev Singh. The Paralympic Committee of India came up with the idea to get it sung by him to give it a touch of inclusiveness.

"The song embodies the grit and determination of our amazing Paralympic athletes. Indian para-athletes have consistently performed well all over the world. You have made India proud. Let's all come together and cheer for our para-athletes. This time India is sending the largest ever contingent of 54 para sportspersons competing across nine disciplines," Thakur said about the song.

"When you go, don't feel under pressure, play with a free mind because at the international level, perhaps you are equal in terms of talent, but how you deal with the circumstances and how tough you are mentally is important. At Rio, there were 19 para athletes and you brought back four medals. This is the biggest contingent, and you will bring more medals," he added.

The virtual launch event of the Paralympics theme was also attended by Ravi Mittal (Sports Secretary), LS Singh (Secretary), Deepa Malik (PCI President) and Gursharan Singh (Secretary General). "This theme song depicts the enthusiasm of the para-athletes and their will to win medals for India. It has been composed to boost the morale of the Indian Paralympic contingent," said Malik.
