AUTHENTIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM

Thou art the ruler of the minds of all people,
Thou dispenser of India's destiny,
Thy name rouses the hearts of the Punjab, Sind
Gujarat and Maratha, of Dravid, Orissa and Bengal,
It echoes in the hills of the Vindhyas and Himalayas
mingles in the music of the Jamuna and Ganges
and is chanted by the waves of the Indian Sea
They pray for thy blessings and sing Thy praise
The saving of all people waits in Thy hand
Thou dispenser of India's destiny
Victory, Victory, Victory to Thee
