This Independence Day, get Pumped with these New-age Patriotic Hindi Songs

Written By Rockying, Music Story

There is something about one's feelings for the nation. I can't hold my tears and might just burst to feel what our martyrs felt when they did, what they did, for what our nation is today. That feeling, that emotion, we are going to convey through these patriotic songs that graced the silver screen not long ago. We have all heard the old ones and love them without a doubt but this goes out to the Indian lyricists, music directors, and movies made in the 21st century. Long Live India, Long Live Music!

Yusuf Meher Ali

Who coined the celebrated phrases "Simon Go Back" and "Quit India" during freedom struggles in 1928 and 1942 respectively?

Having founded the Bombay Youth League in 1928, he immediately organized a protest against the Simon Commision. He and other young men dressed up as coolies to get access to the Bombay port where they greeted the members of the commission with black flags and the slogan “Simon Go Back”. In 1942, at a meeting in Bombay, Gandhi conferred with his closest associates on the best slogan for the Civil Disobedience Movement. C Rajagopalachari suggested ‘Retreat’ or ‘Withdraw’ but it didn’t find much favour with the leader. It was this man who then came up with the succinct phrase — ‘Quit India’ — that got approval.

  • Jawahar Lal Nehru
  • Mahatma Gandhi
  • Lala Lajpat Rai
  • Yusuf Meher Ali
