Flag Song विजयी विश्व तिरंगा प्यारा, झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा

Who Wrote this Song?

Our Flag Song विजयी विश्व तिरंगा प्यारा, झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा was written by Freedom fighter Shri Shyam Lal Gupt ‘Parshad’.

There are two different birth dates shown in various forum.  One is September 9, 1896 in Kanpur and other is Septem 16, 1893.

He was in charge of freedom movement in Fatehpur town and remained President of district congress committee for 19 years. He was arrested for his freedom activity in 1921, 1930 and 1944.

The song was written in 1924 as a patriotic poem. Indian National Congress adopted the song as official Flag Song. After that the song was first sung on Jallianwala Bagh Martyr’s Day on April 13, 1924 in Kanpur.

In 1938 Sarojni Naidu presented the song at Haripura Session of INC where Gandhiji, Jawahar Lal Nehru, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Puroshottam Das Tandon were present.

On 15th August 1952 during the Independence Day celebrations was asked to sing the song.  He was honored with Padma Shri in 1969.

Though a major contribution in freedom struggle and honored well but his family lived in very poor financial condition. Government in central and state have hardly done anything (according to media report).

Prominent leaders have hardly visited Kanpur on his birth and death anniversary. However, common and local people remember him.

विजयी विश्व तिरंगा प्यारा, झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा।

सदा शक्ति बरसाने वाला, प्रेम सुधा सरसाने वाला। वीरों को हर्षाने वाला, मातृ भूमि का तन मन सारा।। झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा …

स्वतंत्रता के भीषण रण में, रख कर जोश बढ़े क्षण-क्षण में। काँपे शत्रु देखकर मन में, मिट जाये भय संकट सारा।। झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा …

इस झँडे के नीचे निर्भय, हो स्वराज जनता का निश्चय। बोलो भारत माता की जय, स्वतंत्रता ही ध्येय हमारा।। झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा …

आओ प्यारे वीरों आओ, देश धर्म पर बलि-बलि जाओ। एक साथ सब मिल कर गाओ, प्यारा भारत देश हमारा।। झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा …

शान न इसकी जाने पाये, चाहे जान भले ही जाये। विश्व विजयी कर के दिखलाएं, तब हो ये प्रण पूर्ण हमारा।। झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा …
