1. Jhanda Uncha Rahe Humara by Shyamlal Gupta

Jhanda uncha rahei(n)humara
Vijayi vishwa tiranga pyaara

Sadaa shakti sarsaane waala,
Prem sudha barsaane waala,
Veero ko hardaane waala,
Maatru bhoomi ka tan-man saara, – 2 times

Jhanda uncha rahei(n) humara.
Vijayi vishwa tiranga pyaara

Swatantra ke bheeshan run mein,
Lakhkar josh badhein kshan-kshan mein,
Kaape shatru dekh ke mann mein,
Mit jaye bhay sankat saara – 2 times
Jhanda uncha rahei(n)humaara.

Jhanda uncha rahei(n) humara.
Vijayi vishwa tiranga pyaara

Does zande ke neeche nirbhay,
Rahei(n) swaadheen hum avichal nishchay.
Bolo Bhaarat maata ki jay.
Swatantrata ho dheyy humara

Jhanda uncha rahei(n) humara.
Vijayi vishwa tiranga pyaara

Aao, pyaare veero! Ah;
Desh-dharm by bali-bali jao
Ek saath sab mil kar gaao,
“Pyaara Bhaarat desh humaara,
Jhanda uncha rahei(n)humaara.

Iski shaan na jaane paaye,
Chaahei(n) jaan bhale hi jaye,
Vishwa vijay karke dikhlaaye,
Tab hove praan Poorna humaara
Jhanda uncha rahei(n) humaara,
Vijayi vishwa tiranga pyaara.

2. Where the Mind is Fearless by Rabindranath Tagore

Where the mind is fearless and the head held high
where knowledge is free
Where the world hasn’t been shattered
Through narrow domestic walls
Where the words come out from the bottom of the truth
Where tireless effort stretches its arms toward perfection
Where the clear current of reason has not lost its way
In the bleak sand desert of dead habit
where the spirit is led by you
In ever-widening thought and action
In this sky of freedom, my Father, let my country wake up.

3. Azadi Ka Geet (Song of Freedom) by Harivansh Rhave Bachchan

(Translated from Hindi)

We are so free our flag is the cloud

Doll decorated with silver, gold, diamonds, pearls
The time to terrorize them is past

The puppets that adorn them
We just threw the handcuffs

Awakening traditional ancestors again
We lifted the snow-kirit brilliantly on the head
We are so free our flag is the cloud

Umbrellas decorated with silver, gold, diamonds, pearls
Those who shaved their heads are now blushing
The broken world is raining flower buds
Lightning vehicles sink fearlessly into amber

Indrayudh also once who was full of courage
Sixty-fourths of Kartal making our umbrella
We are so free our flag is the cloud

4. Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna by Ram Prasad Bismil

Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai
Dekhna hai zor kitna baazu-e-qaatil mein hai
aye watan karta nahin kyun doosra kuch baat-cheet

Dekhta hun main jise woh chup teri mehfil mein hai
Aye shaheed-e-mulk-o-millat main tere oopar nisaar
Ab teri himmat ka charcha ghair ki mehfil mein hai

Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai
Waqt aanay dey bata denge tujhe aye aasman
Hum abhi se kya batayen kya hamare dil mein hai

Khainch kar layee hai sab ko qatl hone ki ummeed
Aashiqon ka aaj jumghat koocha-e-qaatil mein hai
Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai

Hai liye hathiyaar dushman taak mein baitha udhar
Aur hum taiyyaar hain sawa liye apna idhar
Khoon se khelenge holi gar vatan muskhil mein hai
Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai

Haath jin mein ho junoon katt te nahi talvaar se
Sar jo uth jaate hain voh jhukte nahi lalkaar se
Aur bhadkega jo shola-sa humaare dil mein hai
Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai

Hum to ghar se nikle hi le baandhkar sar pe kafan
Jaan hatheli by liye lo barh chale hain ye qadam
Zindagi to apni mehmaan maut ki mehfil mein hai
Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai

Yuun khadaa maqtal mein qaatil kah rahaa hai baar baar
Kya tamannaa-e-shahaadat bhi kisee ke dil mein hai
Dil mein tuufaanon ki toli aur nason mein inqilaab
Hosh dushman ke udaa denge humein roko na aaj

Duur reh paaye jo humse dam kahaan manzil mein hai
Wo jism bhi kya jism hai jismein na ho khoon-e-junoon
Kya lade toofaanon se jo kashti-e-saahil mein hai

Sarfaroshi ki tamanna ab hamaare dil mein hai.
Dekhna hai zor kitna baazuay qaatil mein hai.

We wish you a happy Republic Day!
