What I don't understand is that why would Nehru praise the British when he was fighting for Independence?
'Jana Gana Mana' - Just a thought for the National Anthem! How well do you know it?
Our national anthem, 'Jana Gana Mana', is sung throughout the country. Did you know the following about it? I didn't. I have always wondered who is the 'Adhinayak'and 'Bharat Bhagya Vidhata', whose praise we are singing. I have always thought it might be Motherland India!
To begin with, Jana Gana Mana, was written by Rabindranath Tagore in honor of King George V and the Queen of England when they visited India in 1919. To honour their visit, Pandit Motilal Nehru had five stanzas included that are in praise of the King and Queen. (And most of us think it is in praise of our great motherland.)
