About "Jai Hind"
Jai Hind जय हिंद is a salutation, slogan and battle cry most commonly used in India in speeches and communications pertaining to or referring topatriotism towards India (also known as Hind). It translates roughly to "Hail India" or "Victory to India" or "Long live India". The term was claimed to be coined by Chempakaraman Pillai, of Indian Independence Movement and Hindu-German Conspiracy. But researchers had stated that it was first coined by Major Abid Hasan Safrani of the Indian National Army as a shortened version of Jai Hindustan Ki (translation: Victory to India). It has since captured the imagination of Indians and has been immortalized by Subhas Chandra Bose as the battle cry of the Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj).
Jai Hind Post-mark was the first commemorative postmark of Independent India, and was issued on the day of independence, 15 August 1947.
