A few facts one must bother to know about IndiaI would like share some knowledge I gained yesterday. It was really a shame for me that I did not know about these things. I am sure many of us here too do not know them as well. Please read on and spread the word.
The Indian national anthem is the world's best according to UNICEF now.
The Indian national anthem has actually 5 stanzas and the current one being sung is hence only a part of it. In fact, it is only the first stanza. Can anyone shed light on why the entire 5 stanzas is not our national anthem and why only a part of it?
Do you know who wrote the song Saare Jahaan se Acha?
Well, if you do not, please don't forget. It was a person named Iqbal who was born in the present Pakistan. This is a great feeling in deed. The most sung song in India is actually now said to be from Pakistan.
Who do you think is the Author of Vaishnava Janato.., the famous Hymn of Gandhi?
I really knew this from a long time but was amazed but that most people responded to this question as the author is Mahatma Gandhi himself. It is not! It is a person called Narsinh Mehtha who is a gujarati poet.
Members please share your views on these facts as well as why this current generation is not interested in knowing such facts?
