MUMBAI: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi released Lalitya Munsha's albums Halarda and Lori  on Friday. The album (Lori is in Hindi, while Halarda is in Gurajati) has 10 lullabies sung by a versatile singer Lalitya Munshaw, penned by famous Gujarati poets Shri Jhaverchand Meghani and Shri Madhav Ramanuj.

The launch ceremony comprised of visualizations of Halarda by renowned Kathak exponents Ishira Parikh - Maulik Shah as well as Manifestation of mother's emotions by Shuba Desai and her prodigy Uttara Parikh. They performed on different tracks from the album �Halarda'. Lalitya also sang one of the tracks.

Talking about the need for releasing an album for little ones, Lalitya said In our busy world, it's easy to forget the time-honored practice of singing to our little ones. Lullabies provide a joyful, soul-soothing way to calm your fussy baby or to help lull her to sleep (and to calm yourself at the same time). There is just no substitute for these quiet moments of connection -- time spent nurturing your little love. So, get comfortable in that rocking chair, and enjoy a few moments of peace while listening to my album �Halarda....

Lalitya added Lullabies have been an integral part of Indian culture and heritage  It has been scientifically proven that listening to lullabies during pregnancy does have an enhancing and soothing effect on the unborn child. As a child, my first experience of music was through lullabies . The child feels the first touch of its mother's love through lullabies only. she added  In this modern era, where lullabies are on verge of being extinct , efforts to recreate the magic of popular lyrics by putting them to contemporary music shall work wonders in resurrecting lullabies back to its worthy place in current Indian ethos....

Talking about the album, Lalitya said, The album comprises of 10 lullabies. We have composed some evergreen and classic Indian lullabies, and also included a few fresh ones expressing the thoughts of new age mothers.

The album has age-old lullabies by famous Gujarati poet Shri Jhaverchand Meghani, Neendardi re…..., Vaulia ho…... Sav re Sonanu…... and Neendar Bhari re.....(composed by Avinash Vyas) as well as Meghani's popular Shivaji nu halardu…... also. Besides these five classics of famous Kavi Meghani,  Halarda has three lullabies penned by another famous Gujarati poet Shri Madhav Ramanuj viz. Chandan nu Parnu…... Dhiar re aajo..... and Baheno tame Dev na
