Rangoli Independence day Zero Creativity Photography.jpg

Half-Light, Posting another poem by Rabindranath Tagore and that is National Anthem of India Jana-Gana-Mana. This Rangoli is made on the eve of Independence Day 2015. The words above represent Vande Mataram meaning Salute to Motherland. Vande Mataram is also a national song of India written by ‎Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay. Many other occasional Rangolis can be viewed on my blog. Readers can also read more poetry by Rabindranath Tagore,

 Jaya He
 Tava Subha Name Jage
 Tava Subha Ashisa Mage
 Gahe Tava Jaya Gatha.
 Jana-Gana-Mangala Dayaka, Jaya He
 Jaya He, Jaya He, Jaya He,
 Jaya, Jaya, Jaya, Jaya He

Rabindranath Tagore
English Translation for lovely people in my network

Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,
Dispenser of India's destiny.
Thy name rouses the hearts of the Punjab,
Sindhu, Gujarat, and Maratha,
Of the Dravid, and Orissa and Bengal.
It echoes in the hills of Vindhyas and,
Himalayas, mingles in the music of the
Jamuna and the Ganges and is chanted by
The waves of the Indian sea.
The pray for the blessings,
And sing by the praise,
The saving of all people
Waits in thy hand.
Thou dispenser of India's destiny,
Victory, victory, victory to thee.
