National Anthem of India Lyrics in Hindi, English, and Bengali

Translation into English

The National Anthem was translated into English by Rabindranath Tagore and it goes as follows;

Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,
Dispenser of India s destiny.
Thy name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sindh province/Sindh,
Gujarat and Maratha,
Of the Dravida and Odisha and Bengal;
It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas,
mingles in the music of Yamuna and Ganga and is
chanted by the waves of the Indian Ocean.
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.
