“Ae Watan is a tribute to our motherland, India, and every soldier who has sacrificed their lives for the nation. Even its lyrics are like, ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan, Meri Palko Pe Tu Rehta Hai’, depicting love for our country and keeping it before anyone else.
Patriotic songs have that eternal, innate power to stir our deepest emotions. Whenever I listen to a patriotic song, I feel a mix of all the emotions from pride to happiness, or they simply give me goosebumps. I hope the listeners feel the same while listening to Ae Watan. Of course, the feeling of love and devotion towards one’s country is something very pure.”
