NATIONAL ANTHAM

The song Jana-gana-mana, composed originally in Bengali by Rabindranath Tagore, was adopted in its Hindi version by the Constituent Assembly the national anthem of India on 24 January 1950. It was first sung on 27 December, 1911 at the Calcutta Session of the India National Congress. The complete song consists of five stanzas. The first stanza contains the full version of the National Anthem.
Jana-gana-mana-adhinayaka, jaya he
Bharata-bhagya-vidhata.
Punjab-Sindh-Gujrat-Maratha
Dravida-Utkala-Banga
Vindhya-Himachala-Yamuna-Ganga
Uchchala-Jaladhi-taranga.
Tava Shubh name jage,
Tava shubh ashish mange,
Gahe tav jai gatha,
Jana-gana-mangala-dayaka jaya hai
Bharata-bhagya-vidhata.
Jaya hai, Jaya hai, Jaya hai
Jaya Jaya Jaya, Jaya hai !

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 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 Vindyas 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.

The Indian National Song
VANDE MATRAM

The song Vande Matram, composed in Sanskrit by Bankim Chandra Chatterji, was a source of inspiration to the people in their struggle for freedom. The first political occasion when it was sung was the 1896 session of the Indian National Congress. The song first appeared in his book 'Anandmatha', published in 1882 amid fears of a ban by the British Raj, though the song itself was actually written six years prior in 1876.
Vande Matram !
Sujalam, sufalam, malayaja shitalam,
Shasyashyamlam, Mataram !
Vande Matram !
Shubhrajyotsana pulakitayaminim,
Phullakusumita drumadala shobhinim,
Suhasinim sumadhura bashinim,
Sukadam varadam, Matram !
Vande Matram !

The English translation of the stanza rendered by Sri Aurobindo in prose is

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 blomm,
sweet of laughter, sweet of speech,
The Mother, giver of boons, giver of bliss.

Urging us in paths of duty
Lifting us beyond the skies
Where God dwells and ever loves us,

O wreath of fairest lilies purest white

Enclosing names that men and angels love.
