In a fitting tribute to 75 years of the Indian Republic, Ambuja Neotia, a corporate of note has released a complete rendition of Jana Gana Mana – a popular Tagore poem.
The first stanza of the work was officially chosen to be the national anthem of India in 1950.
The rendition has been voiced by 75 Indian Maestros. These include Amjad Ali Khan, Asha Bhosle, Ayaan and Amaan Ali Bangash, Alka Yagnik, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Teejan Bai, Parveen Sultana, Salim Ali Merchant amongst other notables.
Rabindranath Tagore, the author of the Indian national anthem, was the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize. In Jana Gana Mana, he pays homage to India’s inherent diversity, secured by the Almighty.
Separately, Tagore is the only poet to have the distinction of writing the national anthems of two countries – India and Bangladesh.
