AE WATAN WATAN MERE AABAAD RAHE TU..

REPUBLIC DAY IS ALL ABOUT CELEBRATING PATRIOTISM. NO MATTER WHERE WE STAY, IN WHICH PART OF THE COUNTRY OR WORLD, IT’S THE SAME AMOUNT OF ENTHUSIASM THAT WE SHARE.

FROM HOISTING THE INDIAN FLAG TO THE PARADE, FROM UPDATING SOCIAL SITES WITH PATRIOTIC POSTS OR WEARING TRICOLOURED ATTIRE AND CAPS, WE EXPRESS OUR LOVE, RESPECT AND GRATITUDE TOWARDS OUR INDIA IN VARIOUS WAYS.

CITY FIRST BRINGS TO YOU SOME FAVOURITE SONGS OF OUR READERS WHICH LED A GENERATION TO THE LOFTY IDEALS OF PATRIOTISM AND FREEDOM!

India is celebrating its 73rd Republic Day this year, a commemoration of the date of January 26, 1950, when the Constitution of India came into effect.

This day is celebrated with great pomp by organising an awe-inspiring ceremonious parade at the Rajpath, New Delhi.

Apart from this, the Indian cinema industry has also played a major role in churning out real-life and untold stories related to the freedom struggle. Along with, movies they have churned out some amazing songs that evoke patriotism.

These tracks remind us of our historic past and the sacrifices made by the brave soldiers to protect the country and its citizens.

Songs have always played an undisputed role in inciting the spirit of nationalism in the hearts of millions of Indians.

Many patriotic songs, written by the literary stalwarts of India have acquired legendary status and are still sung by people around the country.

As India celebrates the 73rd Republic Day, City First brings to you our readers’ favourite songs which led a generation to the lofty ideals of patriotism and freedom.

‘Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo...Zara Aankh Mein Bhar Lo Paani..Jo Shaeed Hue Hai Unki, Zara Yaad Karo Kurbaani...’ I can never stop singing this song once I hear it or think about it.

What a song by Lata Mangeshwar! I really hope today’s generation develops this feeling of patriotism and serves the nation with honour, pride and dignity.

I have always been so fond of Republic Day parade. Since my school days, this occasion holds a special place in my heart. —MAHIMA SHARMA

Since childhood, we are not just listening to patriotic songs, but performing on those songs. One song has always been one of my favourite ones.

‘Aao baccho tumhe dikhaye”, from the movie Jagriti. This song is something we performed on stage in school, so it has even a more special memory.

Now, I see it as a travel song, and I wonder if I can write a similar song someday to show the glory of my land. —ABHILASHA GARG

AE WATAN WATAN MERE AABAAD RAHE TU.. ‘Teri Mitti’ is my first pick always when it comes to fi nding motivation in music.

It evokes a thought of courage and the will to take on the world with a brave face. On days like Republic Day and Independence Day, it only becomes all the more important and special to listen to it and may I add, on a cranked-up volume.

I really wish people understand the value of patriotism and spread good vibes for the betterment of the nation. —ISHA PATEL

‘Hai Preet Jahan ki Reet Sada’, a song that never fails to make me happy.

This song starts with recounting the incredible achievements of our nation, ‘Jab zero diya mere Bharat ne.’ and went on to dedicate the whole song towards the beautiful culture of our holy Land.

It also refl ects on us that we should seek inspiration from other countries, but at the same time keep that ‘Proud of Being Indian’ fl ame alive in our hearts. —AWADHESH PAREEK
