Tune of the Day: Jana Gana Mana
National anthem of India
“Jana Gana Mana” (usually translated to English as “Thou Art the Ruler of the Minds of All People”) was composed at the beginning of the past century by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore. It was first sung in public at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress in 1911, but was officially adopted as the Indian national anthem only in 1950.
