Lata Mangeshkar, the name says it all, there’s nothing much to add to it! She has given us the best songs ever to cherish life-long. Her songs never get old and neither her voice. And this Independence Day we can’t help but tune to her songs again like we do every year and every time.
1. Ae Mere Watan Ke logon
The song is composed by C. Ramachandra and was voiced by our beloved Lata Mangeshkar. The song is a tribute to the Indian soldiers, who died during the China-India war in 1962. The song has been called out as one of the heart-touching songs, and also moved Jawaharlal Nehru, our former Prime Minister to tears. Here is the video!
2. Mere Rang De Basanti Chola
Extremely emotional and the lyrics are too deep and will always give you the visceral thoughts connected to your patriotic emotions. The song was sung by Mukesh, Mahendra Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar and Rajendra Mehta for the film, Shaheed in 1965. Here is the video!
3. Aisa Desh Hai Mera
Veer-Zara, known as the most popular romantic drama of all times, has given us the best times watching it. Be it the film, story or the songs. Especially the beautiful song, Aisa Desh Hain Mera, sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Gurdas Mann and Udit Narayan, is an absolute hit. And this Independence Day, it’s time to play it again, and cherish the day!
