well! who doesnt know about jana gana mana.It is the song (anthem) which made our blood to raise like a fountain in our body.Its a life song of every Indian.we feel proud when we feeling it.what an anthem we have got.
Jana Gana Mana is India’s national anthem written in Sanskritised Bengali by poet Rabindranath Tagore.
As there is enormous diversity in Indian languages, it is interesting to know how the National Anthem that is written in Bengali can be understood by other Indians who do not know Bengali.
The original poem written by Rabindranath Tagore was translated into Hindi by Abid Ali.
A formal rendition of the national anthem takes fifty-two seconds.
A shortened version consisting of the first and last lines (and taking about 20 seconds to play) is also staged occasionally.
