At the dawn of history, India started on her unending quest, and trackless centuries are filled with her striving and the grandeur of her success and her failures. Through good and ill fortune alike she has never lost sight of that quest or forgotten the ideals which gave her strength- Tryst with Destiny.
Jana Gana Mana is the national anthem of our country. It is composed in Bengali by poet Rabindranath Tagore. A formal rendition of the national anthem takes approximately 52 seconds. It was first publicly sung on 27 December 1911 at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress. It was adopted by the Constituent Assembly of India as the National Anthem on 24 January 1950.
Thought I would provide a brief history before starting.
Recent events suggest that some people are against playing the national anthem in movie theaters, that doesn’t mean they have a problem standing for 52 seconds, if they have any issue regarding it then probably they should run a diagnosis on themselves.
I am just against playing it in the theaters, I mean it’s not a place where you play NATIONAL ANTHEM. It’s inappropriate. It’s something we all are proud of, but maintain the decorum of the anthem. Almost everyone visits theaters but it does not mean that you play it there. Patriotism comes from the heart, you can’t force it. Play it in your workplace in the morning or before the big meetings or colleges.
I mean why one has to ruin the whiteness of the song.
I love my country & I am proud of it, I am willing to do whatever it takes to make it better. What about you?
Don’t impose it, let us embrace it.
