(Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera- Swades)
Happy Independence Day! 🙂
I was with my friends last night, listening to some patriotic songs for a change. And it felt very good. This one friend of mine has a huge flag of India in his living room- quite a change from other desi houses that I visit, where people love putting up an American flag. And yeah, one of my friends started singing Star Spangled Banner. 😐 A colleague in the office proposed the idea of wearing Indian attire today, but I wasn’t too enthusiastic. The last time I wore Indian to a Bhangra party, I felt over dressed in front of others who had worn jeans and tees. The Americans made an effort and did put on colorful salwar kameezes and sexy saris.
My top five Favorite Patriotic songs:
1. Yeh Jo Des Hai Tera
2. Aaao Bachcho Tumhe Sikhaye
3. Nanha Munha Rahi Hoon
4. Vande Mataram (AR Rehman)
5. Mera Rang De Basanti Chola (The Legend of Bhagat Singh)
Which are your top five favorites?
