Is not today Pakistan's Independence day? :)
Ironically, without Pakistan we never had much reasons to get all those fancy army/af toys.

I beg to differ. TSP has no relevance in India's bigger scheme of things other than that of a minor irritant. Won't Elaborate in this thread.

Jai Hind. Happy Independence to day to all jingoes and all Indians.
I recall these lines that we used to recite in school days on Independence day-

"Desh hai pukaarta pukaarti maa Bhaarti,
khun se tilak karo ya goliyo se aarti."

"The country calls you, Mother Bhaarti calls you,
Do tilak with blood or worship with bullets."

Still as relevant as ever.

Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been
broken up into fragments by narrow
domestic walls;
Where words come out from
the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its
arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason
has not lost its way into the dreary
desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by
thee into ever-widening thought and
action…
Into that heaven of freedom, my
Father, let my country awake.

- Rabindranath Tagore

I have searched a lot for that song, but never found it on the internet. I can still recall how it was sung, the tune and everything, but just cant find the song only by lyrics.

This is the "politically correct translation" of this poem, Raghuvanshi ji. The original poem is very harsh.


Bengali version:

চিত্ত যেথা ভয়শূন্য উচ্চ যেথা শির,
জ্ঞান যেথা মুক্ত, যেথা গৃহের প্রাচীর
আপন প্রাংগণতলে দিবস-শর্বরী
বসুধারে রাখে নাই খণড ক্ষুদ্র করি,

যেথা বাক্য হৃদযের উতসমুখ হতে
উচ্ছসিয়যা উঠে, যেথা নির্বারিত স্রোতে,
দেশে দেশে দিশে দিশে কর্মধারা ধায়
অজস্র সহস্রবিধ চরিতার্থতায়,

যেথা তুচ্ছ আচারের মরু-বালু-রাশি
বিচারের স্রোতঃপথ ফেলে নাই গ্রাসি -
পৌরুষেরে করেনি শতধা, নিত্য যেথা
তুমি সর্ব কর্ম-চিংতা-আনংদের নেতা,

নিজ হস্তে নির্দয় আঘাত করি পিতঃ,
ভারতেরে সেই স্বর্গে করো জাগরিত ||

Devanaagari Version

चित्त जेथा भयशून्य ,उच्च जेथा शिर ,
ज्ञान जेथा मुक्त जेथा गृहेर प्राचीर
आपन प्रांगणतले दिवसशर्वरी
बसुधारे राखे नाइ खण्ड खण्ड क्षुद्रकरि,

जेथा वाकय हृदयेर उत् समुखहते
उच्छ्वसिया उठे , जेथा निर्वारित स्रोते
दशे देशे दिशे दिशे कर्मधारा धाय
अजस्र सहसबिध चरितार्थताय-

जेथा तुच्छ आचारेर मरुबालुराशि
बिचारेर स्रोतःपथे फेले नाइ ग्रासि,
पौरुषेरे करे नि शतधा-नित्य जेथा
तुमि सर्व कर्म चिन्ता आनंदेर नेता-

निज हस्ते निर्दय आधात करि पितः,
भारतेर सेइ स्वर्गे करो जागरित।

Hindi Translation - कवी शिवमंगल सिंह "सुमन" द्वारा

जहां चित्‍त भय से शून्‍य हो
जहां हम गर्व से माथा ऊंचा करके चल सकें
जहां ज्ञान मुक्‍त हो
जहां दिन रात विशाल वसुधा को खंडों में विभाजित कर
छोटे और छोटे आंगन न बनाए जाते हों

जहां हर वाक्‍य ह्रदय की गहराई से निकलता हो
जहां हर दिशा में कर्म के अजस्‍त्र नदी के स्रोत फूटते हों
और निरंतर अबाधित बहते हों
जहां विचारों की सरिता
तुच्‍छ आचारों की मरू भूमि में न खोती हो
जहां पुरूषार्थ सौ सौ टुकड़ों में बंटा हुआ न हो
जहां पर सभी कर्म, भावनाएं, आनंदानुभुतियाँ तुम्‍हारे अनुगत हों

हे पिता, अपने हाथों से निर्दयता पूर्ण प्रहार कर
उसी स्‍वातंत्र्य स्‍वर्ग में इस सोते हुए भारत को जगाओ

English Translation

Where the mind is without fear
and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been
broken up into fragments by the tireless efforts of men;

Where words come out from
the depth of truth;
Where the currents of tireless striving originate
and flow without hindrance all over;

Where the clear stream of reason and thoughts has not lost its way into the dreary
desert sand of lowly habits and deeds;
Where the valour is not divided in 100 different streams;
Where all the deeds, emotions are blissfully given by you

My father, strike {the sleeping} India without mercy,
so that it may awaken into such a heaven.

what today is 14th, are we celebrating our independence from the yahoos to the west as well ? :mrgreen:

On the eve of the day we remember when Mother India broke free from her shackles, let us renew our promise that never again shall we let Her fall into such a situation again, come what may.

p.s. there aren't any renditions of kadam kadam badaye ja on youtube of the version I prefer, the simple and not overtly cinematic one. this one's not bad.

Aarati of Independence by Veer Savarkar

जयोस्तुते श्रीमहन्मंगले ! शिवास्पदे शुभदे
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! त्वामहं यशोयुतां वंदे IIध्रुII - 1

Victory to you, O Auspicious One,
O Abode of Sublimity and Eternal Delight!
O Glorious Goddess of Freedom, O Triumphant One,
We salute you! - 1

राष्ट्राचे चैतन्य मूर्त तू नीति-संपदांची
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! श्रीमती राज्ञी तू त्यांची
परवशतेच्या नभात तूची आकाशी होशी
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! चांदणी चमचम लखलखशी II - 2

O Embodiment of our National Spirit,
Our Virtue and Prosperity!
O Glorious Goddess of Freedom,
Our Queen you are!
In this ambience of helplessness,
O Glorious Goddess of Freedom,
You alone are our Shining Star! - 2

गालावरच्या कुसुमी किंवा कुसुमांच्या गाली
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! तूच जी विलसतसे लाली
तू सूर्याचे तेज उदधिचे गांभीर्यहि तूची
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! अन्यथा ग्रहण नष्ट तेची II - 3

You are the blush that prospers,
On cheeks as soft as flowers,
On flowers as soft as cheeks!
You are the Radiance of the Sun, the Depth of the Ocean,
O Goddess of Freedom,
Without you their worth is naught! - 3

मोक्ष मुक्ति ही तुझीच रूपे तुलाच वेदांती
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! योगिजन परब्रह्म वदती
जे जे उत्तम उदात्त उन्नत महन्मधुर ते ते
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! सर्व तव सहचारी होते II - 4

You are the Liberation from the Cycle of Birth and Death,
O Goddess of Freedom, hailed as the Supreme Soul,
By the Yogis of the Vedas you are!
All that is most supreme and noble,
So very magnificent and oh, so very sweet,
O Goddess of Freedom,
All your companions are! - 4

हे अधम रक्त रंजिले I सुजन-पूजिते ! श्रीस्वतंत्रते
तुजसाठि मरण ते जनन
तुजवीण जनन ते मरण
तुज सकल चराचर शरण
भरतभूमिला दृढालिंगना कधि देशिल वरदे
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! त्वामहं यशोयुतां वंदे II - 5

Soaked in the villain’s blood---You are!
Worshipped by noble men----You are!
O Goddess of Freedom,
The entire Creation surrenders unto you!
Life is to die for You,
Death is to live without You,
O Giver of Boons, We await the time when you shall
Clasp Our Motherland to your bosom!
O Glorious Goddess of Freedom, O Triumphant One,
We salute you!

हिमालयाच्या हिमसौधाचा लोभ शंकराला
क्रीडा येथे करण्याचा का तुला वीट आला? होय आरसा अप्सरांना सरसे करण्याला
सुधाधवल जान्हवीस्त्रोत तो का गे त्वां त्यजिला? II - 6

Even Lord Shankar covets Our Himalayas,
The Mighty Mountains of Terraced Snow,
O, why does it not please you to sport here?
Why O, why do you forsake the bountiful Ganga?
Her stream, glowing like the moonshine,
Is not it a worthy mirror for even the Apsaras? - 6

स्वतंत्रते ! ह्या सुवर्णभूमित कमती काय तुला?
कोहिनूरचे पुष्प रोज घे ताजे वेणीला
ही सकल-श्री-संयुता ! आमुची माता ! भारती असता
का तुवां ढकलुनी दिधली?
पूर्वीची ममता सरली
परक्यांची दासी झाली
जीव तळमळे, का तू त्यजिले उत्तर ह्यांचे दे ?
स्वतंत्रते भगवती ! त्वामहं यशोयुतां वंदे IIध्रुII - 7

O Freedom! What did you lack in this Golden Land?
Is there not a fresh Kohinoor bloom for your braid each day?
Here is The Bounteous One, Our very own Motherland,
Why O, why did you push her away?
O, why did your Motherly love of old wither away?
O, so anguished is my soul!
For she is now but a slave to others,
Why O, why did you abandon her so,
Answer me, I pray!
O Glorious Goddess of Freedom, O Triumphant One,
We salute you! -7
