  • Further details: The National Anthem of India is the work of the great poet and philosopher RABINDRANATH TAGORE (1861-1941) and was written orginally in Bengali. It was first sung on December 27 1911 at the Calcutta session of the Indian National Congress. It was published in 1912, and was for years associated with India's struggle towards independence. He wrote not only the words but also the melody and provided furthermore an English adaption. The melody has little to do with the 'Ragas' of the Hindus. It was sung at the historical midnight session of the Constituent Assembly on August 14 1947 and adopted in its Hindi version by the Constituent Assembly as the National Anthem on January 24 1950. It was awarded as the most beautiful National Anthem in the world.
