Mr Sanjeev Jain created special cards on  Golden Jubilee of Ae Mere Watan Ke Logon song 

Golden Jubilee of Ae Mere Watan Ke Logon song written by  Kavi Pradeep

This song was first sung by Lata Mangeshkar on January 27, 1963, in the presence of India’s first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in Delhi. Written by Kavi Pradeep and composed by C Ramachandra, this immortal song pays tribute to all the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the country in the war between India and China.
