‘Karma’ is a Bollywood(Indian film industry) film .It is a patriotic film.The story of 'Karma' is based on an honest military officer,his patriotism and struggle against terrorism.The fil was directed by Subhas Ghai. It was released in 1986.There are a gang of superstars in this movie.

Here has a mega hit song which has been giving a tremendous patriotic touch since its release. It is one of my favorite songs.This song has become a mile stone in this genre. Anand Bakshi ,the great lyricist,has written this immortal song.This song was sung under the directorship of Laxmikant and Pyarelal(a pair for music direction in Bollywood movies). They were Kabita Krishnamurti and Mohammad Aziz who had been given the greatest opportunity or chance to sing this millennium hit song.

Substance


First Stanza :-

The first stanza hints at the unity between the Country and its devotee. The person is here fully devoted to his Country. He speaks of his duties and religion which are fully sacrificed to the Country. Here Karma means not only duties but the destiny and fortune too for him. He is everything for the Country and vice versa. These two halves make one-a union,an universal bond. He will do anything and everything for his Country. He has given his heart already and promises to attribute his own life in the name of his Country for the sake of his Country. Thus is the patriotism of the person.

Second Stanza :-

To the person ,his Country is all and everything. He thinks that his country is his destiny,purpose,aims,religion and pride.He considers his country to be his lady-love.He emphatically strengthens that he will live and die only for the cause of the country.He has already given his heart and affirms of giving his life when it needs.

Third Stanza :

According to the person there are no different religions in his Country. The names of different religions are only names .These are names of his Country. His Country is one. His country cannot be divided at any cost. It is a unit. He says that if a path separates a religion to another religion, it cannot be a religion or a path. Path may be different but if humanity is its philosophy, then it cannot be bad. All is within you.The creed which makes classification can only be accused of inhuman and illegal charge. They will live and die only for their Country. He has already attributed his heart to the Country and is ready to give his life when the Country demands.

Fourth Stanza :-

Some dacoits, whose work is only to loot things from others and live, are now virulently criticized. They are robbing of a bride with the help of bullets which have been filled with hatred,animosity,enmity and jealousy. They do not know that they are looting their own materials,moneys and properties .They are doing such criminal activities today unknowingly against themselves. Ignorant people are playing dangerous games with their own bloods ignorantly .They are foolish persons. They should no do such activities the horrific affects of which split back upon themselves. But the poet person is confident of his devotion. They will live and die for the Country.

Fifth Stanza :

The patriot again reflects his words in which he has affirmed in the first stanza and emphasizes the power of his love for the Country which can no one uproot from the depth of his heart. He says that his duties,his religion are his Country.He has given the inner soul to the Country and now is confirming that he is courageous and fearless to give even his life for his Country.It proves once again the deep love,adoration,respect for his Country.
