Truth behind National Anthem of India
In School, Collage, and Sports &
for Nation Pride we sung National Anthem “JAN GAN MAN” because since child hood
teachers taught us that it’s our National Anthem Pride of India,
But is this really for India?
This Anthem was written
by “Ravindra Nath Tagore” It was first sung at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress on 27 December 1911. “Jana Gana Mana was officially adopted by the Constituent Assembly as the Indian national anthem on January 24, 1950”
But if you try to translate this song you will find that this anthem is not for India it is like dedicated to someone which is not our Mother land, not our Untold Indian Heros.
See the translation of this song.
The ruler of the minds of people, Victory is to you, dispenser of the destiny
Sindhu, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Dravida (South India), Orissa, and Bengal,
Vindhya, the Himalayas, the Yamuna, the Ganges, and the oceans with foaming
waves all around
up listening to your auspicious name, Ask for Your auspicious blessings,
sing to your glorious victory.
You who impart wellbeing to the people! Victory
is to you, dispenser of the destiny of India! Victory to You!
Now you can understand what that Anthem means. Originally this song
The poem was composed in
December 1911, precisely at the time of the Coronation Durbar of George V, and is considered by some to be
“in praise of King George V” not God.
It was sung on the second
day of the convention, and the agenda of that day devoted itself to a loyal welcome of George V on his visit to India. The event was reported thus in the British Indian press:
“The Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore sang a song composed by him specially to welcome the Emperor.” (Statesman, Dec. 28, 1911)
“The proceedings began with the singing by Rabindranath Tagore of a song specially composed by him in honour of the Emperor.” (Englishman, Dec. 28, 1911)
“When the proceedings of the Indian National Congress began on Wednesday 27th December 1911, a Bengali song in welcome of the Emperor was sung. A resolution welcoming the Emperor and Empress was also adopted unanimously.” (Indian, Dec. 29, 1911)
King George felt happy &
proud after listening this Anthem “Ravindra nath tagore was selected for Nobel prize”
But after lots of controversies
related with this song he refuse to take that prize for this Anthem and he got same prize for his book
