Unforgettable Songs – Part 1

Posted on October 5, 2006. Filed under: India, Music, Thoughts | Tags: , , , , |

There are times you feel nostalgic on hearing a song. A song that you used to hear regularly when you were a kid, or watch it on TV. A song that really means somthing to the country. Doesnt matter where you belong, iam sure there would be a song that just arouses the patriot in you.

If you had the privilage of living in india when DoorDarshan (DD) was the only available TV station (iam talking about the 1985-1995 period), you would definitely know what i am talking about. For months i have been searching for the classic “Mile Sur Mera Tumhara” video all over the internet. I even went to the extent of sending an email to the DD head. But as usual, there was no reply. After some searching, all i could get was the re-enacted video by MIT students (it is good too!!). Luckily, i stumbled upon the original version on the ever helpful YouTube. The audio/video quality is not good, but this is all we have. Iam sure many would want to see it. So here it is

Too bad DD has stopped airing the video. If anyone can do anything to get it back on air, id be the most greateful person!! Ive a better audio version of the song. So if it helps, im posting the link.

And talking about patriotic songs, who can forget “Aye mere watan ke logo” – the song rendered so beautifully by the immortal Lata Mangeshkar in honor of the brave soldiers who died defending the motherland during the indo-china conflict in 1962. This song moved Jawaharlal Nehru so much, he literally shed tears. I hope the version that i have is the original. Can someone please confirm? Immortal Song indeed!!


Download “Aye mere watan ke log” and “Mile sure mera tumhara”
