come let me show you kids
Come children, show you the picture of India, make tilak with this soil, this is the land of victims. Vande Matram.
This song is from the movie Jagriti of 1954. This movie was made to educate children about the country and this song serves that purpose in the best possible way. The song is penned by Pradeep and he has also sung it. The specialty of each province of North, South, East and West India was narrated in the song. Some lines from the song remind you here –
See, it was Shivaji Dola of the Marathas.
Who weighed the might of the Mughals upon swords
On every mountain there was fire, every stone was shola.
The child had spoken every child of Har Har Mahadev
Shivaji the lion kept our pride
Tilak with this soil, this is the land of sacrifice
Vande Mataram, Vande Mataram
Little Muna Rahi Hoon
I am little Munna Rahi, I am a soldier of the country, say Jai Hind with me.
When little children sing this song while chanting Jai Hind, everyone’s heart leaps with joy. This song is from a 1962 movie called Son of India. The song is sung by Shanti Devi Mathur and written by Shakeel Badayuni. Music was by Naushad Sahab. Some of the lyrics of the song were like this –
The new era is my new way, I will make the country a city of machines,
India will not be less than anyone, I will only take steps forward
Right, left, right, left, Thum!
Grow up, I’ll be the star of the country, I’ll be the star of the world’s eyes,
I will always hold the tricolor high, I will only go forward
Right, left, right, left, Thum!
i love my india
When Malhar came someone came to Sawan on Jhum when the water caught fire when Deepak sang the raga. The fusion of seven notes, this garland of songs of life, we also call our God the one with the flute. Mahima Chaudhary is seen singing on this song in Subhash Ghai’s movie Pardes. But the soul of this song is Aditya Narayan and I love my India in his voice. This song is very sweet in children’s language. The song has been sung by several singers including Hariharan, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Shankar Mahadevan, Aditya Narayan and Amrish Puri. It is written by Anand Bakshi.
This happens only in India
Jahan Paan Mein Payal, Haath Mein Kangan, Ho Mathe Pe Bindiya… In the movie Pardesi Babu Govinda gives this song with his innocence which hardly any actor could give. And this is the reason why you will often see young children singing this song on August 15th. This song is sung by Anand Raj Anand. Some of the lyrics of the song remind you.
Shabari’s blueprint plum
Ram began the practice of love
Mira drank poison
Plays the style of love
where in the melody of love
Krishna Kanhaiya dances with the gopis
Happens only in India
Still Dil Hai Hindustani
If you can understand us then understand Dilbar Jani, the more you understand the more you will be surprised. This song from Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla’s film Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani also doesn’t take long to become a favorite patriotic song of children. Because the lyrics of this song are so simple and the melody is absolutely gorgeous. The song is written by Javed Akhtar and sung by Udit Narayan.
If we can understand people then understand Dilbar Jani
Inverted is right as it is its own story
we are a little smarter
a little silly
we have some truth
a bit unfair
Still, the heart is Indian
my country is like that
Now let’s talk about Shahrukh Khan and there is no mention of Aisa Desh Hai Mera, how can this happen. Veer Zara This song may be new but still everything about it makes you dance like a little kid. The song is written by Sanjeev Kohli and sung by Udit Narayan. Some lines of the song are like that.
Where children climb on father’s shoulders, see the fair
Nuts, Kulfi tea is sold at the fairs
Somewhere there is a sweet circle, somewhere a churan pudding
There are innocent children like dolls and puppets
And every day tell them, Grandma, Grandma
Ek Tale Aisa Desh Hai Mera.
Mohe Rang De Basanti
In 2006, without Aamir Khan’s movie Rang De Basanti and the song from that movie Mohe Rang De Basanti, we believe every school’s Independence Day celebration remains incomplete. This song is sung by Daler Mehndi and kids dance to this song with as much enthusiasm as there is in his voice. Prasoon Joshi has written this song. Although it is in Punjabi, this song gets fast on both tongue and feet of kids.
My dust, my native land
A little scent of Baurai Mast Pawan
A slight tremor
Those who have passion, those drops of red blood
You have all that, then you feed the color
Aur Mohe Tu Rang De Basanti Yaara
Mohe Tu Rang De Basanti
