National Anthem


The song Jana-gana-mana, composed originally in Bengali by Rabindranath Tagore, was adopted in its Hindi version by the Constituent Assembly as the National Anthem of India 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 contains the full version of the National Anthem:

Sheet music for Jana Gana Mana.
জন গণ মন অধিনায়ক জয় হে
ভারত ভাগ্য বিধাতা
পঞ্জাব সিন্ধু গুজরাট মরাঠা
দ্রাবিড় উত্‍‌কল বঙ্গ
বিন্ধ্য হিমাচল যমুনা গঙ্গা
উচ্ছল জলধি তরঙ্গ
তব শুভ নামে জাগে
তব শুভ আশিস মাগে
গাহে তব জয়গাথা
জনগণমঙ্গল দায়ক জয় হে
ভারত ভাগ্যবিধাতা
জয় হে, জয় হে, জয় হে,
জয় জয় জয়, জয় হে॥

Bharata-bhagya-vidhata.

Dravida-Utkala-Banga

Vindhya-Himachala-Yamuna-Ganga

Uchchala-Jaladhi-taranga.

Tava shubha name jage,

Tava shubha asisa mange,

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 the first and last lines of the stanza (playing time approximately 20 seconds) is also played on certain occasions. The following is Tagore's English rendering of the anthem:

   Thou art the ruler 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 Jamuna and Ganges 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.
