Hullo Atuldom

A very Happy Republic Day to every Indian on this earth. It is 73 years since The Indian Constitution came into effect replacing the Government of India Act and turning the nation into a newly formed Republic.

Various videos have started doing rounds on the social media over the last few days, and the one that is shared the most is this one. This video has Cyrus Broacha, the theatre and television personality who excels in tongue-in-cheek satire, quiz a few youngsters about what they think of the national holidays- 15th August and 26sup>th January. I don’t know if I should feel sad about the replies that the respondents gave or feel ashamed of how little information we have passed on to the generation that followed ours – we being the generation that followed those who had worked towards independence for India and making it a Sovereign Democratic Republic. (I myself didn’t know answers to few of the questions).

Here I am reminded of this post by Peevesie where she has expressed her thoughts on National pride, patriotism, and the behaviour of the citizens when such national days approach. I am sure that the thoughts in there would open no-holds and no-age barred debates, and evoke sentimental responses all around.

I don’t want to continue the lament so I just came back to the spirit of this blog which is music.

Over the last few years we have had a few films which were based on Real achievements of this vast country of ours. Atulji has written some highly educative and informative posts for songs from these movies (one reading of these posts is not enough to understand the spirit behind these National achievements).

The posts are almost like an insiders’ view, as he works for one of the largest employers of the country, the Indian Railways which is instrumental in binding the country into one whole unit. The other large employer being the Armed Forces. These two organisations of the country work relentlessly 24/7 and salute to them.
These are the posts Shubh din aayo; dil mein Mars hai which speak of modern India’s achievements that should make very Indian proud (I don’t know if every Indian knows everything about India.)

Before beginning this post, I just went over the songs posted in the blog on the very first Republic day (for the blog) and found these

Song Posted at
Ye desh hai veer jawaanon ka (posted at 7.46 a.m.)
Mere desh ki dharti sona ugle (posted at 7.54 a.m.)
Dulhan chali o pahan chali (posted at 7.59 a.m.)
Hai pree jahaan ki reet sada (posted at 8.15 a.m.)
Abke baras (posted at 8.34 a.m.)
Chhodo kal ki baaten (posted at 8.47 a.m.)

As can be seen from above, there were six patriotic songs on that date, all posted well before 9 a.m. I am sure post this activity Atulji would have left for the official flag unfurling program at his work place.

Here I would like to mention that Flag Hoisting takes place on Independence day and Flag Unfurling for Republic Day. Also the main celebrations for the country happens in New Delhi -the national capital- where the Prime Minister hoists the National flag and addresses the nation on Independence day from the ramparts of the Red fort and The President unfurls the flag on Rajpath – the venue of the Republic Day parade. The President, being the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces, presides over the Republic Day parade. The Republic Day celebrations begin with the Prime Minister paying homage (on behalf of a thankful nation) to the unknown soldiers, who laid down their lives for the country, at the memorial at India Gate. There is going to be a slight departure this year, as the Amar Jawan Jyoti -the eternal flame at the memorial – which was constructed after the 1971 Indo- Pak war and inaugurated on 26th January 1972 has been merged with the newer one at the National War Memorial on 21st January 2022.

Coming back to the songs that were posted on 26th January 2009, of the six songs posted one was from a Black and White movie (at the time of its release) “Naya Daur” having Ajit and Dilip Kumar in the song. The last song posted that day was from “Hum Hindustani” which had Sunil Dutt and we can also see some military and para-military force parades in the song. The other four songs were from Manoj Kumar starrers, each song showcasing a different aspect of patriotism. All the posts were short, crisp posts. (I must say that Atulji has become more vocal as the blog grew.)

These are my last two contributions to the blog on the occasion of Indian Republic day.

Song Date of posting
Mera mulk mera desh mera ye watan 26 January 2021
Vande Maatram 26 January 2020

Today we are having a song from Mukul S. Anand’s unfinished, unreleased 1997 movie “Dus”. The film began production in May 1997 and 40% shooting was completed by August. Songs from the movie were already released for public viewing on various music channels of satellite television. Unfortunately Mukul Anand (the director), died during the movie’s shoot on location in Utah, and the movie was shelved. The co-producer Nitin Manmohan released another movie with the same title but unrelated subject in 2005. Mukul Anand’s ‘Dus’ had a cast of Sanjay Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Salman Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Raveena Tandon etc. It had music by Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy and Sandeep Chowta. Lyrics were by Sameer and Deepak Choudhary.

Today’s song is in the voices of Udit Narayan, Shankar Mahadevan, Mahalakshmi Iyer, Dominique Cerejo and lyrics are by Sameer. It had been filmed as a stage song and tells the world that India will be “sabse aage” in the years to come. That means one of the leading nations of the world. And we can see there is a lot of good happening in the country and hope to see positive changes in the years to come.

This was the promotional video that was up on Mukul Anand’s official website.
When I see such songs I feel all is not lost and there is still some patriotic fervour among the country’s youth and they express it in their own way.
Happy Republic day once again.

Lyrics

suno gaur se duniya waalon

suno gaur se duniya waalon
buri nazar naa humpe daalo
chaahe jitna zor laga lo
sabse aage honge hindustani
hamne kaha hai

oonchi udaanen hain
oonche iraade hain
ham kal ki tasveer hain
jo hamen pyaar de
ham use yaar pyaar den
dosti ke liye zindagi apni vaar den
jo hamen pyaar de
ham use yaar pyaar den
dosti ke liye zindagi apni vaar den

hamne kaha hai jo
tum bhi kaho
yeah yeah
suno gaur se duniya walo
buri najar naa humpe dalo
chahe jitna jor laga lo
sabse aage honge hindustani

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing all a very Happy 70th INDEPENDENCE DAY. We step into our 71st year of Independence.

As children, we have been inculcated with a sense of patriotism. My school had a practice of hoisting the National Flag at a particular hour. Later in my life I was given to understand that this practise is governed by the hour the flag is hoisted in the nation’s capital Delhi- it seems that the flag has to be hoisted first in Delhi at the Red Fort and then the nation follows. I would love to know if what I learnt is right or wrong.
