|March by Ram Singh Thakur|
|Text||by Pt. Vanshidhar Shukla|
|Language||Devanagari, Hindi Urdu|
"Qadam Qadam Badhaye Ja" (Hindi: क़दम क़दम बढ़ाये जा) was the regimental quick march of 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 and recently by Indraadip Dasgupta in the film Gumnaami by Srijit Mukherji. The song is currently the regimental quickmarch of the Indian Army.
