"Aye Mere Watan Ke Logo" (ए मेरे वतन के लोगों) ("O! the people of my country!") is an Indian patriotic song written in Hindi by Pradeep and composed by C. Ramchandra, commemorating Indian soldiers who died during the Sino-Indian War. It was famously performed live by Lata Mangeshkar in the presence of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru at the Ramlila grounds in New Delhi on Republic Day (26 January) 1963, several months after the end of the war. A copy of the soundtrack spool was also gifted to Nehru on the occasion. According to popular legend, Nehru was moved to tears by the song.
