NATIONAL ANTHEM IN HINDI:

जन गण मन अधिनायक जय हे
भारत भाग्यविधाता
पंजाब सिन्धु गुजरात मराठा
द्राविड़ उत्कल बंगा
विन्ध्य हिमाचल यमुना गंगा
उच्छल जलधि तरंगा
तव शुभ नामे जागे,
तव शुभ आशीष मागे,
गाहे तव जयगाथा,
जन गण मंगलदायक जय हे
भारत भाग्यविधाता
जय हे, जय हे, जय हे
जय जय जय जय हे!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY RABINDRANATH TAGORE:

“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.”
