India is celebrating its 71st Independence Day. In the seven decades of freedom, one thing that has fuelled people's sense of patriotism is Hindi cinema and its songs. Be it a freedom struggle anthem like Mera Rang De Basanti Chola or a song like Khoon Chala that depicts the internal struggles, patriotic songs have always had a special place in the hearts of all Indians.
The mere mention of these songs induce patriotism in a person and makes him revel in the nation's glory. From Kaifi Azmi's words to Gulzar's lyrics, every word of a patriotic song takes a different meaning and flavour during the national holidays. Art and music played a key role in our freedom struggle and music composers and lyricists made it a point to evoke the sense of nationalism by using those 'shers' and lines, for years to come.
As the day of India's independence come closer, News18 compiles a list of patriotic songs, which have over the years, become a part of our consciousness. Immerse yourself in the tricolour of patriotism as you listen to the playlist.
