Jana Gana Mana… National Song of India

Beautiful and melodious Indian Anthem – includes many of India’s greatest musicians. You might have to wait a few seconds for the video to load…. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 …. keep counting :)

A digg user asked for a translation of the national anthem and here it is (courtesy of Wikipedia):


Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people, dispenser of India’s destiny.
Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sindh, Gujarat and Maratha, of the Dravida and the Orissa (Utkala) and Bengal;
It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas, mingles in the music of Jamuna and Ganga 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.

Transliterated text:
