Famous Patriotic Songs And Sayings
#18
The prayaaNa-geet (marching song) of Azad Hind Fauz was "Kadam Kadam Badhaye Ja, khushi ke geet gaye jaa":

कदम-कदम बढ़ाये जा खुशी के गीत गाये जा;
ये जिंदगी है कौम की तू कौम पे लुटाये जा।
निगाह चौमुखी रहे विचार लक्ष्य पर रहे,
जिधर से शत्रु आ रहा उसी तरफ नजर रहे;
स्वतंत्रता का गीत है स्वतंत्र हो के गाये जा।

The above song was written by Sri Banshidhar Shukla. He was born in 1904 in Manyaura village of Lakhimpur UP. His father Sri Chhedilal Shukla was a farmer, and also a very accomplished traditional Alha-singer.

Banshidhar started writing patriotic songs under influence from his father in early days. Later he came in contact with famous revolutionary Sri Ganesh Shankar Vidyarthi, and started writing firebrand songs for contemporary national situation.

Several of his songs were published and used to be distributed - mostly unsigned to not let British know who was writing those. One such of these songs was:

अमर भूमि से प्रकट हुआ हूं, मर-मर अमर कहाऊंगा
जब तक तुझको मिटा न दूंगा चैन न किंचित पाऊंगा

क्या-क्या कृत्य बयान करूंइस जाति फिरंगी कायर की
शेष-शारदा बरनि सकै नहीं जुबां में ताकत शायर की

बना खड़ा आसमां धुएं से बन्दूकों के फायर की
खून उबल पड़ता है एकदम करतूत याद कर डायर की

सारी दुनिया तुझे बचावे फिर भी मार भगाऊंगा
जब तक तुझको मिटा न दूंगा चैन न किंचित पाऊंगा।।

Above was known as khooni-parcha, and did not carry poet's name.

His poems written between 1928 and 1930 such as: "Utth Jaag Musafir Bhor Bhai" and "Utho Sone walo Sabera Hua" became very popular and used to be sung in prayers of Gandhi.

After independence, he became disillusioned with congress party, and became a socialist and joined Jay Prakash Narayan and Acharya Narendra Dev. He also contested and won as an MLA in 1957.

Instead of Khadi Boli he started writing more in Awadhi, and his canvas changed from nationalistic to socialistic theme. He wrote several collections of poems at this stage, including 'Kisan Ki Dunia', 'Rama Madaiya', 'Raja ki Kothi'.

One (urdu-influenced) Awadhi poem from Kisan Ki Dunia:

जमींदार कुतवा अस नोचैं देह की बोटी-बोटी,
नौकर प्यादा औरु करिन्दा ताके रहै लंगोटी।
पटवारी खुरचाल चलावैं बेदखली इस्तीफा,
रोजई कुड़की औ जुर्माना छिन-छिन नवा लतीफा।
मोटे-झोटे कपड़ा-बरतन मोटा-झोटा खाना,
घर ते खेत ख्यात ते बग्गरू कहूं न आना जाना।
नंगा ठग्गा इज्जति पावै किमियागर पुजवावै,
जहां जाय तहं ठगि कै आवै यह किसान की दुनिया।
