National Anthem of India



The song Jana Gana Mana, composed by Rabindranath Tagore, was adopted by the Constituent Assembly as the National Anthem of lndia on 24 January 1950. It was first sung on 27 December 1911 at the Calcutta session of the Indian National Congress. The complete song consists of five stanzas. The first stanza consists of the full version of the national anthem. It reads:
  • Jana-gana-mana-adhinayaka, jaya he Bharata-bhagya-vidhata Punjab-Sindhu-Gujarata-Maratha- Dravida-Utkala-Banga Vindhya-Himachala-Yamuna-Ganga Uchchala-Jaladhi-taranga Tava shubha name jage Tava shubha ashish maange Gahe tava jaya-gatha Jana-gana-mangala-dayaka jaya he Bharata-bhagya-vidhata Jaya he, jaya he, jaya he Jaya jaya jaya, jaya he !
Playing time of the full version of the National Anthem is approximately 52 seconds. A short version consisting of first and last lines of the stanza (playing time approx. 20 seconds) is also played on certain occasions. The following is Tagore's English rendering of this stanza:
  • Thou art the rulers of the minds of all people,
    dispenser of India's destiny.
    Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sind, Gujarat and Maratha,
    Of the Dravida and Orissa and Bengal;
    It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas, mingles in the music of Yamuna and Ganga
    and is chanted by the waves of the Indian Sea.
    They pray for thy blessings and sing thy praise.
    The saving of all people waits in thy hand,
    thou dispenser of India's destiny,
    Victory, victory, victory to thee.
