Indian evergreen patriotic songs

All of us enjoy, cherish, and revere the Indians who fought for the nation’s freedom, be it the respected public personalities or the admired armed forces personnel who laid down their lives for the future of this great nation. These patriotic songs remind us of our golden past, our rich heritage, and the supreme sacrifices made by our ancestors. Indian Hindi movie industry or Bollywood has created and picturized several popular Desh Bhakti songs in the movies related to patriotism.

Republic Day 2024: Best evergreen patriotic songs for this Gantantra Diwas

From Lata Mangeshkar's Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo to AR Rahman's Maa Tujhe Salam, here are some evergreen patriotic songs for this Republic Day 2024 (Gantantra Diwas 2024) that can never get too old, and can give you goosebumps even today.

1. Yeh Desh Hai Veer Jawanon Ka (Naya Daur)patriotic songs


A very positive and encouraging song that fills all of us with pride for being born in India, and give you the motivation to get up and do something for the country.

2. Jahan Daal Daal Par Sone Ke Chidiya (Sikandar E Azam)patriotic songs


This song is about the golden past of India, the one we have only read about or heard of. Now, that we see fragments of ancient India scattered across, this song tells us to work on bringing back that golden era.

3. Bharat Ka Rahnewala Hoon (Purab Aur Paschim) patriotic song


This song captures the essence of India, one of the rare ones that talks about its scientific and mathematical genius, one that talks about worshipping rivers, and one that says the world has moved ahead of us, may it still prosper more and more.

4. Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani patriotic song


Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani is a 2000 Indian Hindi-language satirical film released by Dreamz Unlimited (now Red Chillies Entertainment) and this movie title song Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani is everyone’s favourite song.

5. Maa Tujhe Salaam (AR Rahman) patriotic song


This patriotic song deserves to be on the top of this list, doesn't it? AR Rahman never fails to give us goosebumps with his melodies. Written by Mehboob, the song is from the album 'Vande Mataram', released in 1997. It has become the largest selling Indian non-film album to date.

6. Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon (Lata Mangeshkar) patriotic song


Every time we hear this song, tears never stop! Written by Kavi Pradeep, composed by C. Ramchandra and sung by Lata Mangeshkar, this patriotic song was written in honour of the soldiers who were martyred while fighting for this nation in the 1962 Sino-Indian war. This song moved then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to tears.

If there is one song that has stood the test of time and continues to evoke the same sense of love for the country, it is this heart-wrenching song.

7. Teri Mitti (Kesari) patriotic song


One of the most popular patriotic songs from the movie Kesari, Teri Mitti. It will make you super-emo.

8. Ae Watan (Raazi) patriotic song


Both the female and male versions of the song, sung by Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan, managed to give people goosebumps. My personal favourite line in this song is 'Main jaha rahu, jaahan me yaad rahe tu', which makes me realise that my identity as an 'Indian' is something I am really proud of and wherever I go, India will always be in my heart.

9. Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera (Swades) patriotic song


If one truly wants to know the spirit of being an Indian, ask an Indian living out of the country. The way they miss their country is inexplicable, but AR Rahman managed to capture it beautifully into a song. The song correctly describes 'Ye wo bandhan hai jo kabhi toot nahi sakta'! It is correctly said that you don't value the things you possess, but sooner or later you realise that you can't live without some things and they are very important to you.

10. Rang De Basanti (Rang De Basanti) patriotic song


Another Republic Day song by AR Rahman stole our hearts when it was launched. The title track from the movie Rang De Basanti is quite energetic and makes everyone lively. This song has been beautifully sung by Daler Mehndi, K S Chitra and the music has been composed by A.R. Rahman. I am quite sure the song will evoke feelings of patriotism.

11. Bharat Humko Jaan Se Pyaara Hai (Roja) patriotic song


Bharat Humko Jaan Se Pyara Hai is a patriotic song from the movie, Roja. This song is sung by Hariharan. It is composed by A.R. Rehman and written by P.K. Mishra. It is picturised on Arvind Swami & Madhoo Shah.

12. Aye Mere Pyare Watan patriotic song

If there is one song that has stood the test of time and continues to evoke the same sense of love for the country, it is this heart-wrenching Desh Bhakti song.

13. Aisa Des Hai Mera (Veer Zara) patriotic song


This patriotic song is from the movie Veer Zaara and the story revolves around trying to bridge the gap between India and Pakistan. The song 'Aisa Des Hai Mera' has beautiful lyrics that portray how India and Pakistan are similar in so many ways despite so many differences in their cultures.

We dedicate all these energetic and lively songs to the brave unsung heroes who fight fearlessly on the battleground to make sure that we celebrate this day - in fact, all the festivals - in our houses, with our family, safe and happy.
