One of the best things in India is cultural diversity. I dont think any other country has such diverse set of cultures (though with minor glitches). “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara..”,released in 1987 commemorating the 40th anniversary of Indian Independence showcases this diversity amazingly. The videos was created in 1988 by Lok Seva Sanchar Parishad, and promoted by Doordarshan to promote national integration. The song was composed by Louis Banks, written by Piyush Pandey. Raga Bharavi, a sampoorna raga, was chosen as the base for the music.
