TALKING POINT: Vande Matram...


Today is 15th August, Independence Day of India. To celebrate the occasion, I reproduce lyrics of ‘Vande Mataram’ as well as the beautiful Vande Mataram song sung by A R Rahman, Oscar winner



The Song Vande Matram is well known as the National Song of our country. In this song, the two words ‘Vande Mataram’ many freedom fighters remembered to chant while being sentenced to rigorous punishments in Court or being hanged to death. This national Mahamantra Bankimchandra wrote the song ‘Vande Mataram’ on 7th November, 1875.

Although Vande Mataram is a long verse, but nowadays only part of the same is sung more frequently. The translation below is Sri Aurobindo and I am adding some images from 15th Aug, 1947 the first day of our independence.

Vande 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.
Vande Mataram
