What better time than today, when we are just 1 week away to the Republic day of India on the 26th Jan 2009, to tell you how the national anthem makes each Indian feel? The tricolor will tell the Indian tale, when we celebrate our Republic day!
Even listening to the national anthem gives a proud Indian goose-bumps. And hence stimulates us to do something for our country. A contribution which could be big or small, an involvement for the society, whether recognized or non-creditable.
India is going through blood-shed, terrorist attacks and assaults at the moment. And we just need to tell the villains who are bringing in a disharmony and trying to disrupt the peace is our country that we have not given up. And we will not allow your plans succeed. We were united and we will remain united and fight evil for the rest of our lives for the betterment of the country and the world at large.

Translation of The national anthem - Jana Gana Mana in English
Thou are the ruler of the minds of all people, dispenser of India's destiny. The name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sind, Gujurat and Maratha. Of the Dravid and Orissa and Bengal.
It Echoes in the hills of Vindhyas and Himalayas, mingles in the music of Yamuna and Ganga and is chanted by the waves of the Indian Sea.
They pray for your blessing and sing thy praise. The salvation of all people in thy hand, thou dispenser of India's destiny. Victory, Victory, Victory to thee.
