All functions of Bharat Vikas Parishad conclude  with collective singing of Jana-gana-mana  (National Anthem). 

The song Jana-gana-mana, composed originally in Bengali by Rabindranath Tagore, was adopted in its Hindi version by the Constituent Assembly as the National Anthem of India on 24 January 1950.  It was first sung on 27 December 1911 at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress. 

This poem is included in Rabindranath’s book “Geetanjali” which was translated to English and called, in literal translation, “Song Offerings”. Rabindranath received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 for this book.

The complete song consists of five stanzas. The first stanza constitutes the full version of the National Anthem. A formal rendition of the national anthem takes approximately 52 seconds.

राष्ट्र – गान

जन – गण – मन – अधिनायक, जय हे

भारत –  भाग्य – विधाता।

पंजाब – सिन्ध –  गुजरात – मराठा

द्राविड़ – उत्कल – बंग

विन्ध्य – हिमाचल – यमुना – गंगा

उच्छल जलधि तरंग।

तव शुभ नामे जागे,

तव शुभ आशिष मागे,

गाहे तव जय गाथा,

जन – गण – मंगल- दायक जय हे

भारत – भाग्य – विधाता।

जय हे,  जय हे,  जय हे,

जय  जय  जय,  जय हे।

 

Jana-gana-mana-adhinayaka, jaya hey 

Bharata-bhagya-vidhata. 

Punjab-Sindh-Gujarat-Maratha 

Dravida-Utkala-Banga 

Vindhya-Himachala-Yamuna-Ganga 

Uchchala-Jaladhi-taranga. 

Tava shubha name jage, 

Tava shubha asisa mange, 

Gahe tava jaya gatha, 

Jana-gana-mangala-dayaka jaya hey 

Bharata-bhagya-vidhata. 

Jaya he, jaya he, jaya hey, 

Jaya jaya jaya, jaya hey! 

 

The following is Rabindranath Tagore’s English rendering of the National Anthem: 

Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people, 
dispenser of India’s destiny.

Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sind, 
Gujarat and Maratha, 
Of the Dravida and Orissa and Bengal; 

It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas,
mingles in the music of Jamuna and Ganges 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.
