On this Independence day, we remembered a brilliant patriotic song “Aye mere pyaare Watan”, composed by legendary Salil Chowdhury with his stellar and celebrated team of singer Manna Dey and writer Gulzar. As known, it was written on the eve of Indo-China war of 1962. The composition, voice and words together created a heart wrenching yet inspiring song that feels relevant even today. 



Salil Chowdhury the music director predominantly composed for Bengali, Hindi, Malayalam films. He went on to compose music for films in 13 languages. This includes over 75 Hindi films, 41 Bengali films, around 27 Malayalam films, and a few Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati, Oriya and Assamese films. His musical ability was widely recognised and acknowledged in the Indian film industry. He was an accomplished composer and arranger who was proficient in several musical instruments, including flute, the piano, and the esraj. He was also widely acclaimed and admired for his inspirational and original poetry in Bengali. 
Here is wishing all our followers a very happy Independence Day!
