The track features classical instrumentation with powerful verses in Sanskrit and Hindi, presenting a contrast between the two sides of the same goddess, as Durga is both a protector and a destroyer.
It also features a cosmic dance by Rituparna, and how she embraces both these aspects, as the goddess gives power to women, demolishing the lingering darkness and evil that preys on innocence.
Rituparna Sengupta, talking about the song said, "Devi Song is a remarkable ode to the strength and resilience of women. It's an honour to be a part of this project that brings Devi Maa's story to life in such a unique and powerful way”.
Neha Lohia, who is director of the track, envisioned it as a catalyst for a global conversation on women's empowerment.
Talking about the song, Neha said: "Devi Song: Unmasked Goddess is more than just a song; rather it's a transformative experience that takes the audience on a journey from darkness to light, exploring the depths of self-discovery and empowerment. The song's narrative revolves around the empowering story of Devi Maa, shedding light on her unmasked essence.”

She added: "Devi Maa's story is not just a tale of mythology; it's a reflection of the inner strength and divinity within every woman. With this project, we hope to inspire and empower women across the world to embrace their true power.”
The goddess Durga, as well as Kali are particularly revered during the occasions of Durga Puja and Navaratri, as both mark a sacred homage to the almighty mother goddess known as Adi Parashakti or Mahadevi.
