IndiaJana Gana Mana
Thou art the rulers of the minds
of all people,
dispenser of India's destiny.
Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab,
Sind, Gujarat and Maratha,
Of the Dravida and Orissa and Bengal;
It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas
mingles in the music of Yamuna
and Ganga and is chanted by
the waves of the Indian Sea.
They pray for thy blessings
and sing thy praise.
The saving of all people waits in thy hand,
thou dispenser of India's destiny,
Victory, victory, victory to thee.
