The national anthem is composition of Nobel laureate Shri Rabindra Nath Tagore. It goes like this:

जन-गण-मन अधिनायक, जय हे
भारत-भाग्‍य-विधाता,
पंजाब-सिंधु गुजरात-मराठा,
द्रविड़-उत्‍कल बंग,
विन्‍ध्‍य-हिमाचल-यमुना गंगा,
उच्‍छल-जलधि-तरंग,
तव शुभ नामे जागे,
तव शुभ आशिष मांगे,
गाहे तव जय गाथा,
जन-गण-मंगल दायक जय हे
भारत-भाग्‍य-विधाता
जय हे, जय हे, जय हे
जय जय जय जय हे।

Jana-gana-mana-adhinayaka, jaya he
Bharata-bhagya-vidhata.
Punjab-Sindh-Gujarat-Maratha
Dravida-Utkala-Banga
Vindhya-Himachala-Yamuna-Ganga
Uchchala-Jaladhi-taranga.
Tava shubha name jage,
Tava shubha asisa mange,
Gahe tava jaya gatha,
Jana-gana-mangala-dayaka jaya he
Bharata-bhagya-vidhata.
Jaya he, jaya he, jaya he,
Jaya jaya jaya, jaya he!

 

Wish You all happy republic day and Holiday🙂

  1. 62nd anniversary? What do you celebrate on 15th august then? Independence right? So how is this different?

  2. and isnt sindh completely in pakistan? How come its still in the anthem?

    • hey Sufia, This was the poem written for India- the undivided India, long before the seeds of division were sown by british.
      15th August is Independence day as yours is 14th August. Republic day celebrates the coming of Constitution in force, As you celebrate March 23rd more known as Pakistan day🙂

      • right🙂 thank you for clearing that out🙂

        oh..so its like “sara jahan se acha”..that was written by iqbal, long before he changed his mind and started advocated for pakistan instead🙂

  3. How close is God Bless America to your anthem?
    कैसे बंद अपने गान को भगवान का आशीर्वाद अमेरिका है?

    ciao!
