With the recent discussion of the #nationalanthem and the debate between singing it in #sinhala and #tamil, today we're going to take a look at the #history of this song seeing what we can take away from it's controversial past...

Prior to Independence, the national anthem of Ceylon was 'God Save the King' - a fact of colonial rule which many despised. The Ceylon National Congress, one of the nation's independence organisations, vowed to create a new national anthem when the nation became independent.
When Ceylon achieved it needed a new national song so contest was set up to select one and a judging panel was set up. However there was resentment as "In a controversial decision, two of the panelists were declared winners...It began as – 'Sri Lanka Matha/Pala Yasa Mahima'"

#RabindranathTagore conceived of Bharata, the sacred land of India, as a Divine Being that has guided the course of our nation since ancient times. Read about the deep spiritual significance in masterly composition which is our #NationalAnthem.
#Jayanti.

History repeats!
why do Muslims object to #VandeMataram today as they did in 1900s?
Every Hindu must know the complete truth of the Mantra, the #NationalAnthem of the revolutionaries!
