An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Sarfaroshi ki Tammana from Gulal

Just listened to this rendering of a variation of Sarfaroshi ki Tammana originally written by Ram Prasad Bismil during the freedom struggle. RP Bismil was a colleague of Bhagat Singh. It is probably one of the most recognized poems from that time. Ironically, this poet – who wrote this modern day variation, juxtaposes Bismil with Gandhi and his practice of making cotton and Khadi. Nice one anyways.

    Listen to the version from ‘The legend of Bhagat Singh’ (score by A R Rahman). It is full of fervor and is sung by men. 🙂

    Anonymous – this one is meant to be a sarcastic take on the society of today. Btw, have you heard the version from the first Shaheed Bhagat Singh movie – of Manoj Kumar? I don’t think its possible to upstage that version of this song… its rustiness and raw patriotism just amazing!
