National holidays are one of those days when the whole families are together. They present a great opportunity for some well spent family time and an opportunity to indulge in some festivities. Festivities with some patriotic flavour thrown in for good measure. So this Januray 26, once you have seen the telivised live Republic Day parade from the Rajpath, we advise you to do something of your own. A good meal with family and friends, and chat sessions
with patriotic songs as background can refresh your spirits (specially during this Covid times) and make it a good Republic Day celebration for children.
Here are some tracks that you can tune in on Republic day to ignite the spirit of patriotism inside you-
1. Maa Tujhe Salam
This A R Rahman number adds power and emotion into one song with a kind of magic that only the maestro can create.
2. Teri Mitti (Kesari)
A soulful number that touches our hearts with its words and rhythm, this song is a must-play on Independence Day to evoke pride and perseverance to serve the nation.
3. Mere Desh Ki Dharti (Upkar)
To reminisce the golden days of patriotic spirit, play old songs like this one. This track was sung in 1959 and, to date, it is ripe with patriotic emotion and inspiring rhythm.
4.Ae watan mera abaad rahe (Raazi)
Ae watan mera abaad rahe is an emotional song from the movie Raazi which features Alia Bhatt. The song has a smooth tone and has soothing visuals which makes it an ideal song to listen to on loop.
5. Tu bhula jisse ( Airlift)
Stirring the perfect sense of triumph and love for India, this song from the movie Airlift is perfect to kickstart your celebrations. KK's voice and Akshay Kumar's acting will instantly give you goosebumps when the Indian flag hoisting scene comes in the music video
6. Jaihind ki Sena (Shershaah)
Siddharth Malhotra starrer Shershaah is a new movie made on the true story of Param Veer Chakra awardee Capt. Vikram Batra. The high-energy song Jaihind ki Sena is sung by Vikram Montrose gives you a sense of power and courage. Remembering Batra's contribution to India's win over the enemy in the 1999 Kargil War, this song is a must-have in your Independence day playlist.
7.Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani (2000)
I love this song as it captures the dichotomies of us Indians, our ability to carry the good and the not so good with equal ease. I also like that it is a fun song, that would make you smile reflectively, while most patriotic songs tend to be serious.
8.Sandese Aate Hai – Border (1997)
This song tells you the longing of a soldier posted on the borders away from their families, with letters and memories being their only connection. It helps you understand the sacrifices they make and the respect they deserve.
Play these songs to celebrate Republic Day and ignite the love for the country.
