O! Dispenser of India's destiny, thou art the ruler of the minds of all peopleThy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sindh, Gujarat, the Maratha country,in the Dravida country, Utkala and Bengal;It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas,it mingles in the rhapsodies of the pure waters of Yamuna and gangaThey chant only thy name.They seek only thy auspicious blessings.They sing only the glory of thy victory.The salvation of all people waits in thy hands,O! Dispenser of India's destiny, thou art the ruler of the minds of all peopleVictory to thee, Victory to thee, Victory to theeJana Gana Manahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh26zOjIh9I
