Maine Aahuti bankar Dekha

मैंने आहुति बन कर देखा
- अज्ञेय (Sachchidananda Hirananda Vatsyayana 'Agyeya')

मैं कब कहता हूँ जग मेरी दुर्धर गति के अनुकूल बने,
मैं कब कहता हूँ जीवन-मरू नंदन-कानन का फूल बने?
काँटा कठोर है, तीखा है, उसमें उसकी मर्यादा है,
मैं कब कहता हूँ वह घटकर प्रांतर का ओछा फूल बने?

मैं कब कहता हूँ मुझे युद्ध में कहीं न तीखी चोट मिले?
मैं कब कहता हूँ प्यार करूँ तो मुझे प्राप्ति की ओट मिले?
मैं कब कहता हूँ विजय करूँ मेरा ऊँचा प्रासाद बने?
या पात्र जगत की श्रद्धा की मेरी धुंधली-सी याद बने?

Inklab ke Geet Sunane Wala Hoon

कलमकार हूँ इन्कलाब के गीत सुनाने वाला हूँ
- हरिओम पंवार (Hari Om Panwar)

बहुत दिनों के बाद छिड़ी है वीणा की झंकार अभय
बहुत दिनों के बाद समय ने गाया मेघ मल्हार अभय
बहुत दिनों के बाद किया है शब्दों ने श्रृंगार अभय
बहुत दिनों के बाद लगा है वाणी का दरबार अभय
बहुत दिनों के बाद उठी है प्राणों में हूंकार अभय
बहुत दिनों के बाद मिली है अधरों को ललकार अभय

Mukti ki Aakansha

मुक्ति की आकांक्षा
- सर्वेश्वरदयाल सक्सेना (Sarveshwar Dayal Saxena)

चिड़िया को लाख समझाओ
कि पिंजड़े के बाहर
धरती बहुत बड़ी है, निर्मम है,
वहॉं हवा में उन्‍हें
अपने जिस्‍म की गंध तक नहीं मिलेगी।

यूँ तो बाहर समुद्र है, नदी है, झरना है,
पर पानी के लिए भटकना है,
यहॉं कटोरी में भरा जल गटकना है।

Vande Mataram - Lata Mangeshkar

This is my favorite patriotic song. Amazing lyrics topped with the magical voice of Lata makes this the most purifying and thrilling song. The energy and enthusiasm displayed in the video to take our country forward is quite infectious. It says 'WE' are India's future and 'WE' will overcome all obstacles in the path of making it a proud country.

Buiding India Of Our Dreams

A nice presentation on how we, as an individual, can contribute towards building a better India. With very specific action points, this presentation is a call to start working on self as well as social refinement. It shows us how to 'be the change' we want to see in our society and nation. The last slides feature some living examples of ordinary people doing extra-ordinary work which makes them our 'real hero'. Rightly said in the presentation "Heroism is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost but the urge to serve others at whatever cost"

Indian Independence Movement - Ai Mere Vatan Ke Logon

A journey through the Indian Independence movement, this video is a tribute to the heroes of our freedom struggle. It covers the Independence movement right from the time British set foot in India to the year 1947 when India got its freedom finally after a long, excruciating battle. The song that runs in the background was famously performed live by Lata Mangeshkar in the presence of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru at the Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi on Republic Day (26 January) 1963, just two months after the end of the Sino-Indian war. According to legend, Nehru was moved to tears by the song.

हथेलियों में भरे धूप और उजाला करे
