UNESCO Announces Indian National Anthem ‘Jana Gana Mana’ as the Best Anthem

Indian National Anthem “Jana Gana Mana” written and composed by Rabindra Nath Tagore has been chosen as the World’s Best National Anthem by UNESCO.

Jana Gana Mana Written in Sanskritised Bengali, it is first of five stanzas of a Brahmo hymn composed and scored by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore.

It was first sung at the Calcutta Session of the Indian national Congress, on 27 December 1911. Jana Gana Mana was officially adopted by the Constituent Assembly as the Indian national anthem on January 24, 1950. The music for the “current version” is said to be derived from a composition fro the song by Ram Singh Thakur, although some dispute this.

A formal rendition of the national anthem takes about fourty eight to fifty two seconds
