Rabindranath Tagore reciting Jana Gana Mana (1911),
National Anthem of India (since 1950)
Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,
Thou Dispenser of India‘s destiny.
Thy name rouses the hearts
of the Punjab, Sind, Gujarat and Maratha,
Of Dravida, Orissa and Bengal.
In echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas,
Mingles in the music of Jumna and Ganges
And is chanted by the waves of the Indian Sea.
They pray for thy blessing and sing thy praise,
Thou dispenser of India‘s destiny,
Victory, Victory, Victory to thee.
