Cultural India: National Anthem

Jana-gana-mana-adhinayaka, jaya hey,
punjaba-sindhu-gujarata-maratha dravida-utkala-banga
vindhya-himachala-yamuna-ganga ucchhala-jaladhi taranga
tava subha name jage tava subha ashisha mage
gahe tava jaya gatha.
Jana-gana-mangala dayaka, jaya hey,
java he, jaya he, jaya he, java jaya jaya, jaya he

The following is Rabindranath Tagore's English rendering of the stanza:

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.
