“It has been a difficult journey as we have to perform our duties in the hospital and study, but the group has achieved it because of their collective passion for music,” Dr. Maitri Rang, one of the singers, now an intern at the Sum Hospital, said.
Dr. Rang, who has been the driving spirit behind ‘Saawariyaa’ and is a classical singer, has lent her voice to the title song ‘Naina’ besides four other numbers. The other singers include Soham Ghosh, a 3rd year student, who incidentally has a Bengali album to his name and Gargi Tripathy, a 2nd year student.
