Jana Gana Mana

Home >> National Anthem Of India

The National Anthem of India is entitled 'Jana Gana Mana'. The tune was initially made in Bengali by India's first Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore on December 11, 1911. The parent song, 'Bharoto Bhagyo Bidhata' is a Brahmo psalm which has five verses and just the principal verse has been received as National Anthem. If put forwards succinctly, the National Anthem passes on the soul of pluralism or in more mainstream term the idea of 'Unity in Diversity', which lies at the center of India's social legacy.


Jana-Gana-Mana in English


Jana-Gana-Mana in Hindi


Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,

Dispenser of India's destiny.

The name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sind, Gujarat and Maratha,

Of the Dravid and Orissa and Bengal;

It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas,

Mingles in the music of the Yamuna and Ganga

And is chanted by the waves of the Indian Sea.

They pray for thy blessings and sing thy praise.

The salvation of all people is in thy hand,

Thou dispenser of India's destiny.

Victory, victory, victory to thee.
