Hi Friends,

Today I would like to share a musical tribute to the soldiers defending our nation. This song was sung by the legendary late Lata Mangeshkar while Late Lyricist Pradeep wrote the lyrics with music by C. Ramchandra. It was written during the 1962 Indo-China war. When the former Prime Minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru heard this song, he was moved to tears.

The translation is :

O my dear fellow citizens of the country!

Fill your eyes with tears.

Remember the sacrifice of the martyrs.

You should not forget them. Hence I am telling you this story.

Remember the sacrifice of the martyrs.

Stanza 1

When the Mighty Himalayas was wounded, and our freedom was in great danger.

They ( the soldiers) fought until their last breath and finally laid down their corpses.

They were dignified soldiers with great self-respect.

Remember the sacrifice of the martyrs.

Stanza 2

Some (Soldiers) were Sikh, Some Jats, Marathas

Some Gurkha, Some Madrasi ( belonging to South India).

Every brave soldier who lost his life was a true citizen of India.

The blood spilled on the mountains was the Indian blood.

Remember the sacrifice of the martyrs.
