With Love to the Martyrs

Bhagat Singh 27 September 1907 – 23 March 1931

The Government is busy, and they do not see any need to do chamcha-giri for our departed freedom fighters. They also do not need to bother about inflation, scamsters and other sundry problems. Of course if today were the birthday of any one of the Gandhi-Nehru clan the newspapers would have been full of Birthday wishes and such like stuff.

Today is the birthday of Bhagat Singh. I feel that our freedom fighters were full of idealism, patriotism and perhaps the history of our nation would have been different had they come into power. Of course the rationalist and cynic me also wonders if it would have been better or worse ….. Romantic rebels do not make good pragmatic leaders.

I admire Bhagat Singh for his patriotic spirit, zeal and idealism. He, to me, represents a beautiful dream that India has yet to achieve. Shine on superstar, wherever you are ….

Mera Rang De Basanti Chola Rang De Rang De
Rang De Basanti Chola Maiye Rang De
Mera Rang De Mera Rang De

Nikle Hai Veer Jiya Le Yun Apna Seena Taane
Has Has Ke Jaan Loota Ne Azad Savera Laane
Marke Kaise Jeete Hai Is Duniya Ko Batlana
Tere Lal Chale Hai Maiye Ab Teri Laaj Bachane
Marke Kaise Jeete Hai Is Duniya Ko Batlana
Tere Lal Chale Hai Maiye Ab Teri Laaj Bachane
Azadi Ka Shola Banke Khoon Rago Mein Dola
Mera Rang De
Mera Rang De Basanti Chola Maiye Rang De

    Mera rang de basanti chola Maye
    bada hi gehra daag hai yaaro jiska ghulami naam hai
    uska jeena bhi kya jeena jiska desh ghulam hai
    seene main jo dil tha yaaro , aaj bana woh shola
    Mera rang de basanti chola Maye
