Re: [IAC#RG] Bizarre anti-nationalism of Vice President Sh. Venkaiah Naidu?

There is a great deal of misinformation about Vande Mataram, so I would not like to add to it in this thread.

However, it is clear to anybody who reads AnandMath, that Vande Mataram is a reference to Goddess Shakti (Durga/Kali) (Part One Chapter XI) and 'Hail Mother' an invocation to take up arms to kill Muslims "root and branch" because they are enemies of God (Part 2 Chapter IV) so that English rule can result (Part Four Chapter VIII).

Instead here are 3 Youtube links

1)  Bengali (original) version of Jana Gana Mana (complete) (artiste Swagatalakshmi Dasgupta).

2) Highly cinematised version of Vande Mataram (artiste Sangeet Katti) with subtitles

3) Authentic music of Jana Gana Mana as orginally composed by nieces of Rabindranath Tagore. Performed by the National Centre for Performing Art's symphony orchestra (all foreigners).

I leave it to the members to decide which song / version is the most patriotic / stirring.

Could you please put the full text of Vande Mataram onto this site for everyone's edification as to its original object of salutation, purpose and both historical and textual context?
