Ye mera India-1

khoyee hai manzil, rasta hai mushkil

Tum mujhe khoon do, main tumhe azadi dunga

door hato ae duniyawalon Hindustan hamara hai...

Gandhiji on a train
vatan par marnewalon ka yahi baki nishan hoga
final yatra of Gandhiji-1948
Jaliyanwala bagh ye dekho yahin chali thi goliyan
ye mat puchho kisne kheli yahan khoon ki holiyan
ek taraf bandooken dhandhan ek taraf thi toliyan
marnewale bol rahe the inqlab ki boliyan
The Martyrs' well


vande mataram vande mataram
Narrow passage to Jallianwala Bagh Garden
through which the shooting was conducted.

ab kahan jayen hum
ye bata ae zameen ...
partition-1947
mitti meri bhi tu hi
wo hi mere ghee aur choori
wohi raanjhe mere wo heer
wohi sevaiyan wohi kheer
tujse hi ruthna mujhe hi manana
tera mera nata koi dujha na jaanaa
maula mere le le meri jaan
Dividing up a library-1947
sar kata sakte hain lekin sar juka sakte nahin...
Blast in Delhi-1907


dam nikle is desh ki khatir bas itna armaan hai
ek baar is raah mein marna sau janmon ke samaan hai
dekhke viron ki qurbani apna dil bhi bola
mera rang se basanti chola...

Sabarmati ke sant tune kar diya kamaal..
Gandhiji in Bombay,1930

Dandi kuch-The Salt March to Dandi

Hum laye hain tufan se kashti nikaal ke...
