The song goes with it: ‘ Eppudu Okkala Undadu, Ekkada Aaginponivvadu, Edaremunndao Cheppadu Kadile Samayam’ – ‘Neethonee Modalinda and Neethonee Mugisinda, (The time always moves, it will not be as it was once, never allow you stop and never tells you what is ahead. (It) never started with you and never ends with you)’. Visuals of water being released from the pumps were also attached to that.
The video ends with “We miss you Vemulaghat. Your are no more, but we can’t forget you.”
