Vande Mataram!
Sujalam suphalam, malayaja shitalam,
Shasyashyamalam, Mataram!
Shubhrajyotsna pulakitayaminim,
Phullakusumita drumadala shobhinim,
Suhasinim, sumadhura bhashinim,
Sukhadam, varadam, Mataram!

Saptakotikantha kalakala ninada karale
Dvisaptakoti bhujair dhrita-khara karavale
Abala kena ma eta bale
Bahubala dharinim, namami tarinim,
Ripudalavarinim Mataram!

Tumi vidya, tumi dharma,
Tumi hridi, tumi marma,
Tvam hi pranah sharire!

Bahute tumi ma shakti,
Hridaye tumi ma bhakti,
Tomarayipratima gari mandire mandire!

Tvam hi Durga dashapraharana dharini,
Kamala, Kamaladalaviharini,
Vani, vidyadayini namami tvam,

Namami Kamalam, amalam, atulam,
Sujalam, suphalam, Mataram,
Vande Mataram!

Shyamalam, saralam, susmitam, bhushitam,
Dharanim, bharanim, Mataram!

Mother, I bow to thee!
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
bright with orchard gleams,
Cool with thy winds of delight,
Dark fields waving Mother of might,
Mother free.
Glory of moonlight dreams,
Over thy branches and lordly streams,
Clad in thy blossoming trees,
Mother, giver of ease
Laughing low and sweet!
Mother I kiss thy feet,
Speaker sweet and low!
Mother, to thee I bow.

Who hath said thou art weak in thy lands
When the sword flesh out in the seventy million hands
And seventy million voices roar
Thy dreadful name from shore to shore?
With many strengths who art mighty and stored,
To thee I call Mother and Lord!
Though who savest, arise and save!
To her I cry who ever her foeman drove
Back from plain and Sea
And shook herself free.

Thou art wisdom, thou art law,
Thou art heart, our soul, our breath
Though art love divine, the awe
In our hearts that conquers death.
Thine the strength that nerves the arm,
Thine the beauty, thine the charm.
Every image made divine
In our temples is but thine.

Thou art Durga, Lady and Queen,
With her hands that strike and her
swords of sheen,
Thou art Lakshmi lotus-throned,
And the Muse a hundred-toned,
Pure and perfect without peer,
Mother lend thine ear,
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
Bright with thy orchard gleems,
Dark of hue O candid-fair

In thy soul, with jewelled hair
And thy glorious smile divine,
Lovilest of all earthly lands,
Showering wealth from well-stored hands!
Mother, mother mine!
Mother sweet, I bow to thee,
Mother great and free

Thanks for the words of the song, Vande Mataram, Meli, and the translation!  I used to hear this song almost daily when we lived in Delhi once upon a time, but they played only the first verse.

Jas, I was reminded of the song "Chhodo kal ki baatein kal ki baat purani, naye taur se likhenge milkar nayi kahani hum hindustani ..." when I saw your song.  The one I have mentioned used to be popular in my time.

Happy 62 India.
My India is not made of Sapne, but pure reality. And Shah Rukh, who made phir bhi dil hai hindustani is less of a patriot than made to be. In the ninties, he was battling the press that said he had underworld connections.
When I write about India in The Indian Economy, I can feel the pride, the patriotism, a pure sense of contribution towards India and only India. It will be very rare that your will find any other country's name  mentioned there. Every day is independance day and a celebration at The Indian Economy.
We have a truly magnificent channel moderator, who's put us tamilians on the India map. There's a quality about her posts like none other and is a role model for me.
India is one. KIt''s biggest threat is not Pakistan, but the Maoists who have already consumed Nepal. It is The Empire of Cricket that rules the world. Much like only firangi coaches are acceptable, India is ruled by A firang, Sonia, who is India's finest daughter. She's more Indian than most Indians.
A happy independance day to all my IF brothers and sisters. Happy reading for the rest of the year.
