Jana Gana Mana, was written by Rabindranath Tagore in honor of King George V and the Queen of England when they visited India in 1911. 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.) In the original Bengali verses only those provinces that were under British rule, i.e., Punjab, Sindh,Gujarat, Maratha, were mentioned. None of the princely states, which are integral parts of India now, such as Kashmir, Rajasthan, Andhra, Mysore and Kerala, were recognized. Neither the Indian Ocean nor the Arabian Sea was included because they were directly under Portuguese rule at that time. Jana Gana Mana Adhinayaka Jaya He Bharat Bhagya Vidhata Jana Gana Mana implies that King George V is the lord of the masses and Bharata Bhagya Vidhata, or 'the bestower of good fortune'. In this song, the Adhinayak (The Lord of the masses of India) has been hailed. In 1911, when Hindustan was in slavery, there was no lord of the masses. Adhinayak means the most superior hero. In those days, the British emperor was considered as the Adhinayak. Bharat Bhagya Vidhata means he who decides the destiny of Bharat. The destiny of the Bharat which was languishing in slavery was then decided by the British emperor alone. Thus the King George V can only be considered eligible to be hailed as Bharat Bhagya Vidhata and no other Indian leader. Stanza 1: The (Indian) people wake up remembering your good name and ask for your blessings and they sing your glories (Tava shubha name jaage; tava shubha aashish maage, gaaye tava jaya gaatha)
Gahe tava jaya gatha. Who was victorious in 1911 A.D. in Hindustan ? None. Hence it can safely be inferred that Tagore was praising the victory of King George. In those days, the British emperor was hailed throughout the world. Tagore also lent his voice in the chorus by singing this song.

Stanza 2: Around your throne, people of all religions come and give their love and anxiously wait to hear your kind words. Stanza 3: Praise to the King for being the charioteer, for leading the ancient travellers beyond misery. Stanza 4: Drowned in deep ignorance and suffering, this poverty stricken, unconscious country? Waiting for the wink of your eye and our mother's (the Queen's) true protection.
With the words Tava Charane Nata Matha . Rajeshwar Bharat Bhagya Vidhata, Tagore was bowing his head in reverence in front of an emperor. It is but natural to conclude that he was bowing his head in front of the King George V. As per Indian tradition, Rajeshwar means the God of Kings. That time, not a single Indian king was independent. King George V was the only independent king

of Hindusthan. The local kings of princely states were ruled by the British emperor and were at his mercy.

Stanza 5: In your compassionate plans, the sleeping Bharat (India) will wake up. We bow down to your feet, O Queen, and glory to Rajeshwara (the King).

Rabindra Nath Tagore composed Jan Gan Man, which was sung for the first time on the second day of the conference- a day reserved to give a loyal welcome to King George V. The very next day the English newspapers carried the following report about the event: "The Bengali poet Babu Rabindranath Tagore sang a song composed by him specially to welcome the Emperor." (Statesman, Dec. 28, 1911) "The proceedings began with the singing by Babu Rabindranath Tagore of a song specially composed by him in honour of the Emperor." (Englishman, Dec. 28, 1911) "When the proceedings of the Indian National Congress began on Wednesday 27th December 1911, a Bengali song in welcome of the Emperor was sung. A resolution welcoming the Emperor and Empress was also adopted unanimously." (Indian, Dec. 29, 1911).

Surendranath Banerjee, ICS officer brother of Ravinder Nath Tagore he had lived in London during that period, Ravinder Nath Tagore wrote a letter to his brother that Jan Gan Man was written by me but I wrote in compulsion and pressure made by British on me and I am very ashamed on writing this, In the end of that letter Ravinder wrote that dont tell anybody about

this letter but if I passed away then let it reveal with everybody. ("Please find an attachment with this email to get Original Ravinder Nath Tagore's hand written letter in his own hand writing")

After sometime the king returned England and he translated this song in English because he didnt understand this song during his honor in India. George Pancham was very happy with this kind of honor and said he was not welcomed like this ever in England itself. King George was the president of Nobel Prize committee in that period so he ordered to honor Ravinder Nath Tagore with Nobel Prize. Ravinder denied to take Nobel Prize and said the king that if they really want to give honor him then please give me Nobel Prize for my book Geetanjali which I recently wrote. George agreed with Ravinder and in 1913 ravinder Nath Tagore was honored by Nobel Prize in England.

, Ravindranath imitated British style and changed his name to Tagore ! By 1911 A.D., the Indians were greatly influenced by the British. Ravindranath Thakur (Tagore) also was equally influenced. In keeping with the British style, he discarded his original surname Thakur and adopted a new name Tagoregiven by British specially East India Company where he was working, his all family members were also working for East India Company. It was a sheer psychological slavery. Everyone in the country bowed his head in front of the British. No wonder, Ravindra also could not have resisted the heavy pressure of British education. Pak province in Indias anthem a rank denigration ! No doubt, the Congress government selected this song as a national anthem in 1947; but it is against the truth. India was partitioned in 1947. The entire Sindh, half of Punjab and half of Bengal had gone to Pakistan. How did they get a place in Indias national anthem ? Had I been , ,

the prime minister or president of Pakistan, I would taken strong objection to this and would have compelled India to remove these lines. ("Please find an attachment with this email to get Original Ravinder Nath Tagore's hand written letter in his own hand writing")
