Mele sur mera tumhara &
Phir Mile Sur Mera Tumhara
Twenty years after the original debut, the song was re-recorded with an updated cast for telecast on January 26, 2010 by Zoom TV. The lyrics were the same but the order of the appearance of languages changed. This version titled Phir Mile Sur Mera Tumhara features Indian musicians, singers, sportspersons and film personalities from the current generation. The current version (little over 16 minutes) runs longer than the older version (little over 5 minutes) and has been directed by Kailash Surendranath who had directed the original version of Mile Sur Mera Tumhara as well. The new version also retains music composer/arranger Louis Banks who had co-composed/arranged the original Mile Sur Mera Tumhara as well.
Some of the people featured in this version are (in no particular order):
Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, A R Rahman, Sonu Nigam, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Prasenjit Chatterjee, Baichung Bhutia, Shahrukh Khan, Mahesh Babu, Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Shaan, Bhupen Hazarika, Kavita Krishnamoorthy, Dr. L. Subramaniam, Anoushka Shankar, Mammootty, Shivkumar Sharma, Rahul Sharma (musician), Gurdas Mann, Juhi Chawla, Zakir Hussain (musician), Thetakudi Harihara Vinayakram, Vikram, Surya, Abhinav Bindra, Sudarshan Patnaik, Shilpa Shetty, Vijender Singh, Sushil Kumar, Karan Johar, K. J. Yesudas, Shiamak Davar, Shobana Chandrakumar, Shreya Ghosal, Rohit Bal, Priyanka Chopra, Louis Banks, Rituparna Sen Gupta, Amjad Ali Khan, Amaan Ali Khan, Ayaan Ali Khan and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy
The immediate reaction of most Indians to the video was one of disappointment. Unlike its predecessor, the new version seemed to showcase the Hindi film industry more than national integration. Among many notable omissions were Sachin Tendulkar, APJ Abdul Kalam, Ratan Tata. It dropped some languages and had no representatives from several important Indian communities such as Jains and Buddhists. The musical arrangement has come under criticism from viewers too.
The redeeming features of this version are its inclusion of a verse rendered in sign language and showcasing the Indian Armed Forces in the end.
Mile sur mera tumharaa, Thoo sur bane hamaraa…. sur kee nadhiyaan
Har disha se behkee saagar mein milee. Baadalon ka roop leiker
Bharse halke halke… Mile sur mera tumharaa.. thoo… sur bane
Hamaara.. Mile sur mera tumhara…
Chaain taraj tahin nyay taraj
Ek but baniye saayen taraj
Tera sur mile mere sur de naal
Milke bane ek nava surtaal
Mile sur mera tumharaa….tho sur bane hamaara..
Mohnja sur tohi desa pyara mile jadein geet ashaanjo madhur tarano
Sur ka dariya bahte saagar me mile badlaan da roop leike barasan
Isaindhal namm iruvarin suramum namadhakum.. Dhisai veru aanalum
Aazi ser aarugal Mugilai mazaiyai pozivadu pol isai …Namm
Isssaiiii…. Thik thakida thathikakidA….thaka thimi thaka junu
Nanna dhwanige ninna dhwani-ya, seridante namma dhwaniya..
Naa swaramu nee swaramu sangammamai, mana swaram ga avatarinchey
Ninde swaramum ningalude swaramum otthucheiyum Namudeya swaramai….
Tomaar shoor moder shoor srishti koroor koi ekshoor…
Sriishti karoon woi katha
Toma mora swarer milan srishti kare chalbochatano
Male sur jo taro maro, bane aapno sur niralo
Majhya tumchya julta tara madhur suranchya barasti dhara
Sur ki nadiya har disha se behke saagar mein mile…
Baadlo ka roop leke barse halke halke..
Oh…Mile sur mera tumhara tho….sur bane hamara…
Mile Sur mera tumhara
Tho sur bane hamara tho sur bane hamara
Tho sur bane hamara
“Ek sur” (One Tune) (languages of India), or “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” as it is better known, is an Indian song and accompanying video promoting national integration and unity in diversity.
The concept for Mile Sur was developed in 1988 by Lok Seva Sanchar Parishad and promoted by Doordarshan (then India’s sole TV broadcaster) and India’s Ministry of Information. The song was composed by Ashok Patki, co-composed & arranged by Louis Banks, with lyrics by Piyush Pandey (then an Account Manager and presently the Executive Chairman and Creative Head of Ogilvy and Mather, India). The project was conceived and directed by Suresh Mullick (then all India Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather) and recorded by people from all walks of life, including a supergroup of Indian celebrities—musicians, sports persons, movie stars, etc.
The national integration video was intended to instill a sense of pride and promote unity amongst Indians, highlighting India’s different linguistic communities and societies—India’s unity in diversity, so to speak. Mile Sur was telecast for the first time on Independence Day 1988, after the telecast of the Prime Minister’s speech from the ramparts of the Red Fort.
It quickly captivated India, gaining and maintaining near-anthem status ever since.

Phir Mile Sur Mera Tumhara
Twenty years after the tune’s debut, it was re-recorded with an updated cast for telecast on January 26, 2010 by Zoom TV.

The new version retains music composer/arranger Louis Banks. It attracted criticism in a large part of the population among them were the Sindhi community which were upset over the deletion of the Sindhi lines “Mohnja sur tohi desa pyara mile jadein Geet ashaanjo madhur tarano bane tadein” present in the original. Further criticism arose over the omission of notable personalities such as, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Sachin Tendulkar and Vishwanathan Anand.
