Kadam kadam badhaaye jaa

Posted on: August 15, 2010


Of all the national leaders who fought for Indian independence, the name of Subhash Chandra Bose is taken with great respect by many Indians.

Unlike Mahatma Gandhi, Subhash Chandra Bose believed that the Britishers, who then ruled India needed to be taken on militarily, rather than peacefully. People like Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad etc also thought on the same lines, but Subhash Chandra Bose took this philosophy to a much higher plane. He actually created an army that was called Indian National Army and he took on the British forces, albeit with limited success.

INA had am anthem, and that anthem was called “Kadam Kadam Badhaaye jaa”. This anthem was originally sung by Subhash Chandra Bose himself. Pt Bansidhar Shukla had writter the anthem and an INA officer, namely captain Ram Singh had composed the music for this song.

“Samadhi” (1950) was a movie which was inspired from the life of Subhash Chandra Bose. This song, with some modifications, figured in that movie.

Here is this inspirational song “kadam kadam badhaaye jaa” from “Samadhi” (1950). It was written by Rajinder Krishan and music was composed by C Ramchandra. C Ramchandra sang the song too.


Song-Kadam kadam badhaaye jaa (Samadhi) (1950) Singer-C Ramchandra, Lyrics-Pt Banshidhar Shukla/Rajinder Krishan, MD -C Ramchandra/Capt Ram Singh INA

Lyrics

tere liye tere watan ki khaaq beqaraar hai
Himalaya ki chotiyon ko tera intzaar hai
watan se door hai magar
watan ke geet gaaye jaa
watan se door hai magar
watan ke geet gaaye jaa
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa
khushi ke geet gaaye jaa
ye zindagi hai qaum ki
tu qaum par lutaaye jaa
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa

badaa kathin safar hai ye
bade kathin hain raaste
magar ye mushkilern hain kyaa
sipaahiyon ke waaste
tu bijliyon se khel
aandhiyon pe muskuraaye jaa
tu bijliyon se khel
aandhiyon pe muskuraaye jaa
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa
khushi ke geet gaaye jaa
ye zindagi hai qaum ki
tu qaum par lutaaye jaa
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa

bichhad raha hai tujh se tera bhai to bichhadne de
bhai to bichhadne de
naseeb qaum ka bane to apna ghar ujadne de
apna ghar ujadne de
mitaa ke apna ek ghar hazaar ghar basaaye jaa
mitaa ke apna ek ghar hazaar ghar basaaye jaa
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa
khushi ke geet gaaye jaa
ye zindagi hai qaum ki
tu qaum par lutaaye jaa
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa
khushi ke geet gaaye jaa
ye zindagi hai qaum ki
tu qaum par lutaaye jaa
kadam kadam badhaaye jaa

tere liye tere watan ki khaaq beqaraar hai
Himalaya ki chotiyon ko tera intzaar hai
watan se door hai magar
watan ke geet gaaye jaa

Great poet

jankavi pt. banshidhar shukla amar rahein!

Mr.Atul
Ashok Kumar never played the role of Netaji, but as Shekhar. He portrayed a patriot who aspired to be in INA. You probably have Ashok KUmar confused with Sachin Khedekar!

Thanks for this information.

Netaji’s role was played by actor COLLINS PAUL.
