Aye mere watan ki logon zara aankh mei bhar lo paani
jo shaheed hue hain unkee zara yaad karo qurbaani

What self-respecting Indian can listen to these words and remain unmoved? Kavi Pradeep composed the lyrics while C. Ramchandra composed the music. Kavi Pradeep insisted that Lata Mangeshkar should sing the song. This came at a time when Lata Mangeshkar had stopped singing for C. Ramchandra due to personal differences between them. After Lata Mangeshkar read the lyrics she agreed to put aside her personal problems with C. Ramchandra and sang the song.

Lata Mangeshkar sang it live for the first time in 1962 in the presence of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru (Prime Minister of India) and brought tears to his eyes and all others who were there. This was a time when India had just suffered many casualties in the war with China. Many brave soldiers had sacrificed their life to defend their motherland. Even today 45 years later, listening to the song, those words can still bring tears in our eyes.

Lata Mangeshkar sang many beautiful songs for composer C. Ramchandra as well as for many other composers but no other song has had this impact.

No matter how many wars we go through, our armed forces are still out there willing to sacrifice every thing to protect our motherland. These words still ring true:

Aye mere watan ki logon zara aankh mei bhar lo paani
jo shaheed hue hain unkee zara yaad karo qurbaani

aye mere watan ke logon zaraa ankh
