Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo: The song sung by Lata Mangeshkar commemorates the Indian soldiers who died during the Sino-Indian War. The song stands as a rhythym most people have grown up humming. From the simplicity of the lyrics to the catchy tune and the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, everything in the track makes it a classic hit.
Yeh Jo Desh Hai Tera: The song from the movie 'Swades' epitomises the sense of belonging one has for the motherland. The track has been composed and sung by Golden Globe winner A R Rahman.
I Love My India: With lyrics by Anand Bakshi and music by Nadeem Shravan, the song 'I Love My India' from the Shah Rukh Khan starrer 'Pardes' makes for an awesome new-age 'desh bhakti' song.
Hai Preet Jahan Ki Reet: On being asked to sing a song on his visit to the US, the character of Bharat, played by veteran actor Manoj Kumar sang 'Hai Preet Jahan Ki Reet' in the film 'Purab Aur Pashim'.
