Cm Kadam kadam badhaye ja Gm Khushi ke geet gaye ja Ab Ye zindagi hai qaum kee Eb Cm Too qaum pe lutaaye ja Cm Too sher-e-hind aage badh Gm Marane se too kabhee na dar Ab Uda ke dushmanon ka sar Eb Cm Josh-e-vatan badhaye ja Kadam kadam badhaye ja... Teree himmat badhatee rahe Khuda teree sunata rahe Jo saamane tere ade To khaak mein milaaye ja Kadam kadam badhaye ja... Chalo dillee pukaar ke Gam-e-nishaan sambhaal ke Laal kile pe gaad ke Laharaaye ja laharaaye ja Kadam kadam badhaye ja...

Album/Movie/Genre Patriotic Song
Kadam Kadam Badhaye Ja was the regimental quick march of the Subhas Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army. Written by Pt. Vanshidhar Shukla and composed by Ram Singh Thakuri, it was banned in India after World War II as “seditious”, which was subsequently lifted in August 1947. The song has since become a patriotic song in India, and has been re-interpreted by various Indian musicians including C Ramachandra and A R Rahman. The song is currently the regimental quick march of the Indian Army.
