It was originally written in Bengali in 1911 and ignited a patriotic fervor among Indians during the independence movement. Its Hindi version was adopted by the Constituent Assembly as the national anthem of India. Apart from this, January 24 witnessed the calming of the voice ‘deep as the ocean and as calm as a lake’.
