Not too many songs for this occasion, peaceful non-violence isn’t necessarily the most cinematic thing to watch, but I’ll see what I can do! (Bhagat Singh’s birthday was a lot easier)
Obviously, had to start with this. The best, in my opinion, version of Gandhi onscreen.
And then there’s Gandhi’s favorite hymn, which has been remixed and redone a million times. I like this one.
This one is pretty nice too, despite my bigger issues with the movie.
Although I think this song from the same movie gets more at the reason Gandhi liked “Raghupati”, because it was so religiously inclusive.
This one doesn’t have anything to do with Gandhi, but it popped up when I was searching for Gandhi songs, and it makes me laugh to think of Gandhi suddenly appearing as a back-up dancer or something.
