The Indian national anthem is a song written by Rabindranath Tagore in Bengali. The anthem was first sung on 26 January 1911 at the Calcutta session of the Indian National Congress.

This is a very popular patriotic song with deep emotional feelings attached to it. It has been sung at every important occasion and played at every wedding ceremony in India. Aapki janam mein kya kehna hai? (Why are you crying?) or Aap ki janam mein main dhoondna hai? (Are you crying for my sake?) can be heard at weddings as well as other special occasions like Independence Day celebrations and Republic Day celebrations in India. The lyric was also used as an oath during the Emergency of 1975-77 when thousands of people were arrested and imprisoned without trial under POTA which stands for Prevention of Terrorism Act, which was later repealed after the emergency had ended. This famous line is also repeated frequently by many politicians during their election campaigns too!
The following two lines from this famous song have become popular even today: “Jana Gana mana chhe” (“All glory to the motherland”) and “Akhir desh pe tumse Pyar Karo” (“After leaving your country, live peacefully”).


Thou art the Ruler of the Minds of All People

  • Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,
  • The dispenser of India’s destiny.
  • Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sindh,
  • Gujarat and Maratha,
  • Of the Dravida and Odisha and Bengal;
  • It echoes in the hills of Vindhya and the Himalayas,
  • Mingles in the music of Ganga and Yamuna and is chanted by
  • The waves of the Indian sea.
  • They pray for thy blessings and sing thy praise.
  • The saving of all people waits in thy hand,
  • Thou dispenser of India’s destiny.
  • Victory, victory, victory to thee.

Indian national anthem lyrics how to learn

Indian national anthem lyrics are not very easy to learn, but if you are really interested in learning them then I would suggest that you start with the lyrics of Jana Gana Mana. It is a patriotic song that talks about unity and brotherhood.

Jana Gana Mana (Hindi: जन गण माँ, translation: People of India) is the national anthem of India. It was adopted as the official national anthem on 23 January 1950 after being originally composed by Rabindranath Tagore for his play Jana Gana Mana which debuted in 1913. The music was written by Pyarelal, while the words were written by Tagore himself. The English translation of Jana Gana Mana is “O Land Of India”.

The Indian national anthem uses a mixture of Sanskrit and Hindi verses that have been set to an English tune, making it easier for non-native speakers to sing it without reading or understanding its original language. However, there are several versions available online where you can read it along with some meanings and translations into various languages like Hindi, Urdu, Bengali, etc., which makes it easier for people who want to know more about our country’s history or what the song means when they hear it sung on television or at public events, etc.
