De Di Hume Aazaadi... Saabarmati Ke Sant

Every time I listen to this song, I feel choked with emotions and tears dwell around my eyelashes.

For today, for Gandhi Jayanti, October 2, 2008. Happy birthday to the Father of our Nation - Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

Long live Bapu's theories and may God bless me with strength to follow his princlples of satya and ahimsa.


F: de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
Ch: de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal

F: aandhi mein bhi jalti rahi gandhi teri mashaal
Ch: saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal

F: dharti pe ladi toone ajab dhab ki ladaai
daagi na kahin topp na bandook chalai
dushman ke kile par bhi na ki toone chadaai
wah re fakir khoob karaamaat dikhaayi
chutki main dushmano ko diya desh se nikaal
Ch: saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
F: de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
Ch: raghupati raaghav raaja raam

F: shatranj bicha kar yahan baitha tha zamaana
lagta tha ke muskil hai firangi ko harana
takkar thi bade zor ki dushman bhi tha taana
par tu bhi tha bapu badaa ustaad purana
maara woh kas ke daav ke ulti sabhi ki chaal
Ch: saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
F: de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
Ch: raghupati raaghav raaja raam

F: jab jab tera bigul bajaa jawaan chal pade
majdoor chal pade the aur kisaan chal pade
hindu woh musalmaan sikh pathaan chal pade
kadamon pe teri koti koti praan chal pade
phoolon ki sej chhod ke daude jawaaharlaal
Ch: saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
F: de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
Ch: raghupati raaghav raaja raam

F: mann mein thi ahimsa ki lagan tan pe langoti
laakhon mein ghoomta tha liye satya ki soti
waise to dekhne mein thi hasti teri chhoti
lekin tujhe jhukti thi himaalay ki bhi choti
duniya mein tu bejod tha insaan bemisaal
Ch: saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
F: de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
Ch: raghupati raaghav raaja raam

F: jag mein koyi jiya hai to bapu tu hi jiya
toone watan ki raah pe sab kuch loota diya
manga na koi takht na koi taaj hi liya
amrut diya to theek magar khud zaher piya
jis din teri chita jali roya tha mahaakaal
Ch: saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
F: de di hume azaadi bina khadag bina dhaal
saabarmati ke sant toone kar diya kamaal
Ch: raghupati raaghav raaja raam (3)
