Jana Gana Mana

There are words floating around saying UNESCO has declared "Jana Gana Mana" to be the best national anthem in the world. This post is not regarding the veracity of that news. This post is to make us know the anthem closest to our hearts better.

You will find here the entire poem of our national anthem with its translation.

Below is the translation of the national anthem in the handwriting of Gurudev Shri Rabindra Nath Tagore himself:

The entire poem is also given in hindi below:

The bengali text of the first stanza of the poem which forms our national anthem is given below:
Jôno gôno mono odhinaeoko jôeô he
Bharoto bhaggo bidhata
Pônjabo Shindhu Gujoraţo Môraţha
Drabiŗo Utkôlo Bônggo
Bindho Himachôlo Jomuna Gôngga
Uchchhôlo jôlodhi toronggo
Tôbo shubho name jage
Tôbo shubho ashish mage
Gahe tôbo jôeogatha
Jôno gôno monggolo daeoko jôeô he
Bharoto bhaggo bidhata
Jôeo he, jôeo he, jôeo he,
jôeo jôeo jôeo, jôeo he
