Happy 68th Independence Day to all Indians..

Vande Mataram…Freedom comes at heavy cost in today’s greedy, selfish, cunning & sick mentality humans! So, value it , protect it… Lets Celebrate Independence day singing  patriotic ‘Vande Mataram’ song. Many of our freedom fighters lost their life just by singing this beautiful patriotic song….Salute to all those founding fathers of India’s Independence…

Vande Maataram (वन्दे मातरम्), now India’s official national song. This Patriotic Song used during Indian freedom fight against British/European invasion & destruction in India (1700 ~ 15th Aug 1947).   Globally, this song is rated as one of the most beautiful and energetic songs in world history! Millions of Indians had to face brutality or put in jail for years  just for singing this song during freedom struggle!

Vande Maataram (वन्दे मातरम्) Poem:

वन्दे मातरम्
सुजलां सुफलाम्
मलयजशीतलाम्
शस्यशामलाम्
मातरम्।

शुभ्रज्योत्स्नापुलकितयामिनीम्
फुल्लकुसुमितद्रुमदलशोभिनीम्
सुहासिनीं सुमधुर भाषिणीम्
सुखदां वरदां मातरम्।। १।। वन्दे मातरम्।

सप्त-कोटि-कण्ठ-कल-कल-निनाद-कराले
कोटि-कोटि-भुजैर्धृत-खरकरवाले,
अबला केन मा एत बले।
बहुबलधारिणीं नमामि तारिणीं
रिपुदलवारिणीं मातरम्।। २।।
वन्दे मातरम्।

तुमि विद्या, तुमि धर्म
तुमि हृदि, तुमि मर्म
त्वम् हि प्राणा: शरीरे
बाहुते तुमि मा शक्ति,
हृदये तुमि मा भक्ति,
तोमारई प्रतिमा गडि
मन्दिरे-मन्दिरे

त्वम् हि दुर्गा दशप्रहरणधारिणी
कमला कमलदलविहारिणी
वाणी विद्यादायिनी,
नमामि त्वाम्
नमामि कमलाम्
अमलां अतुलाम्
सुजलां सुफलाम् मातरम्।। ४।।
वन्दे मातरम्।

श्यामलाम् सरलाम्
सुस्मिताम् भूषिताम्
धरणीं भरणीं मातरम्।। ५।।
वन्दे मातरम्।।

Vande mataram – English translation:

I bow to thee, Mother India,
richly-watered, richly-fruited,
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!
