Republic Day 2023: India will celebrate its 74th Republic Day on January 26, 2023. Indians all around the world are marking the occasion by flying the national flag and taking part in various activities. On January 26, 1950, the Constitution of India took effect as the country’s governing document, replacing the Government of India Act of 1935.
As we celebrate the day with pride in our hearts and a smile on our cheeks, we revisit some of Lata Mangeshkar’s great patriotic songs. The ‘Nightingale of India’ has left us with an abundance of beautiful, tragic, and patriotic songs. On the occasion of the 74th Republic Day, we revisit some of her classics, such as Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon and Mera Rang De Basanti Chola and others.
Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon
Aye Mere Watan Ke Logon by Lata Mangeshkar is a beautiful song to hear on Republic Day. People used to question her when she didn’t sing the song at a concert, according to the singer.
Mera Rang De Basanti Chola
Mera Rang De Basanti Chola is another song that radiates magic like no other. The song is from the 1995 film Shaheed and was performed by Mukesh, Mahendra Kapoor, Lata Mangeshkar, and Rajendra Mehta.
Aisa Des Hai Mera
Lata Mangeshkar captured hearts with Veer Zara’s Aisa Des Hai Mera, a song about India and Pakistan. Topping it all off, Shah Rukh Khan’s smile and Preity Zinta’s dimple are the icing on the cake.
Ek Tu Hi Bharosa
The song was written by AR Rahman and performed by Lata. It’s from the Hindi film Pukar from 2000.
Jo Samar Mein Ho Gaye Amar
Lata Mangeshkar sings another wonderful song as a tribute to all the fallen troops.
This is the first republic day after Lata Mangeshkar’s death. She left the world in 2022 after being admitted to ICU for some days. Republic Day will be the best occasion to pay tribute to Indias Nightingale.
