Jana gana mana
Jana gana mana adhinayaka jaya he
Bharata bhagya bidhata
Which Indian doesnt know these word.
I was listening to our national anthem on musicindiaonline.com
It has a huge collection of national anthem sung by various artists..
When I listen to national anthem, I have some sense of a great feeling.
I dont know how to explain it. I just cant put in words..
I felt like crying at some times…
I felt like standing up and facing the enemy at other times..
No wonder, our soldiers play national anthem everyday!
I feel my english is limited to express the subtleties involved in that emotion..
I can only whistle it.. Well.. May be not..
Bindhya Himacala yamuna Ganga
I felt I was standing in front of himalayas.. Blue sky.. White snow..
Strong wind.. Nobody around..
The only sound you could hear was a cloth flutter and flutter very hard..
Yes.. I see a national flag fluttering..
It was not drooping.. It was proud..
And I was standing far away from it..
I was just appreciating the beauty of this place.. and the pride of the flag..
Taba subha name jage
Taba subha asisa mage
I feel that national flag has embodied itself into a beautiful small kid..
And I was going to kiss it..
Jana gana mangala dayaka jaya he
Bharata bhagya bidhata
I really have goose flesh all over my body..
I dont knw what makes this happen..
I just love this.. I feel that a strong current running through me..
As the song progresses.. I get to see the India map divided into 3 parts like our national flag..
Jaya he.. The north Indian saffron roars.. Jaya he..
Jaya he.. The white central India sings.. Jaya he..
Jaya he.. The green south India uproars.. Jaya he..
The whole India joins together and recites..
Jaya jaya jaya jaya he
“Good morning teachers!” – I feel like uttering these words everytime.. Every single time I listen to national anthem..
We are used to singing national anthem in our school assembly.. And finally wish our teachers good morning..
A lot of us will associate national anthem with school days..
All these thoughts come to mind when I listen to national anthem (Alone!!!)
This reminds of an incident few years back… I asked my grand father..
“Thatha, what comes to your mind when you listen to national anthem.”
He replied back..
“When I listen to national anthem, I become a 10 year old boy.. ”
“I only think of the day India really got independence..”
“I was wearing a brown shorts and I collected the toffees distributed by the school.. ”
“We all didnt knw wht that independence means.. But we were all so happy.. ”
“I have probably never been so happy in my life after that!”
“I have listened to so many many songs which makes me cry, which makes me feel good… ”
“But for me.. My national anthem is even better than my mother’s song to put me to sleep.. ”
“I have not done much to this country! But this country had done a lot to me..”
“I really can only think of myself as a 10 year old boy, enjoy the real independence in my school.. ”
I could see tears in his eyes..
