Indian National Anthem & Song


Indian National Anthem (composed by Rabindra Nath Tagore)

Jana gana mana adhinayaka jaya he
Bharata bhagya vidhata
Punjaba Sindhu Gujarata Maratha
Dravida Utkala Banga
Vindhya Himachala Yamuna Ganga
uchchala jaladhi taranga	
Tava shubha name jage, tava shubha asisa mage,	
gahe tava jaya gatha.	
Jana gana mangala dayaka jaya he	
Bharata bhagya vidhata.	
Jaya he, Jaya he, Jaya he,	
jaya jaya jaya, jaya he.


Indian National Anthem (English translation)

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 Odisha 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.


Indian National Song (composed by Bankimchandra Chatterji)

Vande Mataram!	
Sujalam, suphalam, malayaja shitalam,	
Shasyashyamalam, Mataram!	
Vande Mataram!	
Shubhrajyotsna pulakitayaminim,	
Phullakusumita drumadala shobhinim,	
Suhasinim sumadhura bhashinim,	
Sukhadam varadam, Mataram!	
Vande Mataram, Vande Mataram!	


Indian National Song (English translation)

I bow to thee, Mother,	
richly-watered, richly-fruited,
cool with the winds of the south,
dark with the crops of the harvests,
The Mother!
Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight,
her lands clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom,
sweet of laughter, sweet of speech,
The Mother, giver of boons, giver of bliss.
