Hindus Hope Others Will Follow SuperHeavy's Example

Mick Jagger has sung in Sanskrit in Satyameva Jayate, the second single on a new album of rock supergroup SuperHeavy, which also features Indian musical legend AR Rahman, Joss Stone, Dave Stewart, and Damian Marley.

Composed by Rahman, it is reportedly four minutes and seven seconds long. Miracle Worker was the group's first single.

Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism,  hailed  Jagger and his group for experimenting in Sanskrit.

But he urged other famous acts like Elton, Madonna, U2 and AC/DC to also record in Sanskrit.
