I am from India. Our Country got independence from Britishers in the year 1947. In the year 1950 we have adopted our present National Anthem. It was written by Guru Rabindranath Tagote, who received Noble prize in literature for his legendary work 'Geetanjali'. Our National anthem does have two stanzas but in routine practice, we sing only one stanza. It is having its own tune made, that too was done under the guidance of Guru Rabindra Nath Tagore. It is having a time period also and within that time one has to finish the Anthem, that means it has to be sung in a definite pattern and at a definite pace. Normally in India we are introduced to National Anthem at our school level and by the time we reach middle school we are experts in singing the Anthem. Durind Our Independnce Day and Republic Day celebrations one can see general people are gathering t various places and after hoisting the flag they sing Nationl anthem.Now Government of India has made it mandatory to paly the National Anthem in all Movie theatres. Our National Antthem goes like this: Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka Jaya Hey, Bharata Bhagya Vidhata, Punjab, Sind, Gujrat, Maratha, Dravida, Utkala, Banga, Vindhya, Himachala, Jamuna, Ganga, Ucchala Jaladi Tanarga, Tava Shubha Name Jage, Tava Shubha Aashish Mage, Gaye Tava Jaya Gaatha, Jana Gana Mangala Dhayaka Jayahey Bharata Bhagya Vidhata, Jaya Hey, Jaya Hey,Jaya Jaya Jaya Hey !
