Vande Maataram (वन्दे मातरम्) Poem:
सुहासिनीं सुमधुर भाषिणीम्
सुखदां वरदां मातरम्।। १।। वन्दे मातरम्।
अबला केन मा एत बले।
बहुबलधारिणीं नमामि तारिणीं
रिपुदलवारिणीं मातरम्।। २।।
तुमि विद्या, तुमि धर्म
तुमि हृदि, तुमि मर्म
त्वम् हि प्राणा: शरीरे
बाहुते तुमि मा शक्ति,
हृदये तुमि मा भक्ति,
तोमारई प्रतिमा गडि
त्वम् हि दुर्गा दशप्रहरणधारिणी
सुजलां सुफलाम् मातरम्।। ४।।
धरणीं भरणीं मातरम्।। ५।।
Vande mataram – English translation:
I bow to thee, Mother India,
cool with the winds of the south,
dark with the crops of the harvests,
The Mother India!
Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight,her lands clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom,sweet of laughter, sweet of speech,The Mother India, giver of boons, giver of bliss!
Terrible with the clamorous shouts of seventy million throats, and the sharpness of swords raised in twice seventy million hands,who sayeth to thee, Mother,that thou are weak? Holder of multitudinous strength,I bow to her who saves, to her who drives from her the armies of her foes, The Mother India!
Thou art knowledge, thou art conduct,thou art heart, thou art soul,for thou art the life in our body.In the arm, thou art might, O Mother,in the heart, O Mother, thou art love and faith,it is thy image we raise in every temple.
For thou art Durga holding her ten weapons of war,Kamala at play in the lotusesAnd speech, the goddess, giver of all lore,to thee I bow!I bow to thee, goddess of wealthpure and peerless,richly-watered, richly-fruited,The Mother India!
I bow to thee, Mother India,dark-hued, candid,sweetly smiling, jeweled and adorned,the holder of wealth, the lady of plenty,The Mother India!
