Indian National Anthem ‘Jana Gana Mana’

Originally composed as Bharoto Bhagyo Bidhata in Bengali by polymath Rabindranath Tagore, Jana Gana Mana formal rendition is of approximately 52 seconds. It was first publicly sung on 27 December 1911 at the Calcutta (now Kolkata) Session of the Indian National Congress.

If put forwards succinctly, the National Anthem conveys the spirit of pluralism or in more popular term the concept of ‘Unity in Diversity’, which lies at the core of India’s cultural heritage.
