Their relentless vigour and unmatched courage led to the country's decolonization, but even after seven decades of independence, our soldiers at the borders continue to tackle infiltrators and acts of terrorism to keep our motherland safe. While this year's celebration will not see the usual congregation of people at the Red Fort, schools and other public places, we can seek inspiration from patriotic numbers. Here are some patriotic songs that Bollywood has gifted us in the last one year to instill love and adoration for the country.
This school song from the film, 'Ganga Jamuna', represents the newfound optimism of Independent India. It is an ode to the new age citizen, and pays tribute to the leaders of India's independence struggle. The film featured Dilip Kumar and brother Nazir Khan in the lead; they played bothers who are at war with each other. This is a Mahatma Gandhi paean, written right on the dawn of Independence. The good old day, when Gandhism had not completely been claimed by history, and the villain of the Indian bedtime tale was still the "Firangi"!
