Opening song

The opening credit song is notable for the lines being from Bhagavad Gita signifying End time of Kali Yuga with verses:

Yadā yadā hi dharmasya glānirbhavati Bhārata
Abhyutthānam adharmasya tadātmānam sṛjāmyaham

Whenever there is decay of righteousness O! Bharata
And a rise of unrighteousness then I manifest Myself!
