      Republic Day Greetings

      26th January

      From SOCM - FORUM 

         Vande Mataram!

      Sujalam, suphalam, malayaja shitalam,

      Shasyashyamalam, Mataram!

      Shubhrajyothsna pulakitayaminim,

      Phullakusumita drumadala shobhinim,

      Suhasinim sumadhura bhashinim,

      Sukhadam varadam, Mataram!

       

       

       

       

       

      The song, Vande Mataram, composed in Sanskrit by Bankimchandra Chatterji, was a source of inspiration to the people in their struggle for freedom. It has an equal status with Jana-gana-mana. The first political occasion when it was sung was the 1896 session of the Indian National Congress.

      The above is the text of its first stanza.

      The English translation of the stanza rendered by Sri Aurobindo in prose 1 is: I bow to thee, Mother, richly-watered, richly-fruited, cool with the winds of the south, dark with the crops of the harvests, 1 As published in Volume Eight of Sri Aurobindo Birth Centenary Library Popular Edition 1972 National Symbols The Mother! Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight, her lands clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom, sweet of laughter, sweet of speech, The Mother, giver of boons, giver of bliss.

        It was the Lahore Session of the Indian National Congress at midnight
        of December 31, 1929 - January 1, 1930, that the Tri-Colour Flag was
        unfurled by the nationalists and a pledge taken that every year on
        January 26, the "Independence Day" would be celebrated and that the
        people would unceasingly strive for the establishment of a Sovereign
        Democratic Republic of India. The professed pledge was successfully
        redeemed on January 26, 1950, when the Constitution of India framed by
        the Constituent Assembly of India came into force, although the
        Independence from the British rule was achieved on August 15, 1947.

        We the moderators of this forum wish you all a Happy Republic Day.

        Let us all work together for the unity and development of our nation.
