Jana Gana Mana - Indian National Anthem

Jana Gana Mana is the national anthem of India. It is composed and scored by Nobel laureate poet Rabindranath Tagore. It was first sung at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress on December 27, 1911 and was officially adopted by the Constituent Assembly as the Indian national anthem on January 24, 1950.

 

A formal rendition of the national anthem takes about fifty-two seconds. A shortened version consisting of the first and last lines (and taking about 20 seconds to play) is also staged occasionally.

 Jana gaṇa mana adhināyaka jaya he
Bhārata bhāgya vidhātā
Punjāba Sind Gujarāṭa Marāṭhā
Drāviḍa Utkala Banga
Vindhya Himāchala Yamunā Gangā
Ucchala jaladhi taranga
Tava śubha nāme jāge
Tava śubha āśiṣa māge
Gāhe tava jaya gāthā
Jana gaṇa mangala dāyaka jaya he
Bhārata bhāgya vidhāta
Jaya he jaya he jaya he
Jaya jaya jaya jaya he!

LAS VEGAS (AP) Police were called after hundreds of job seekers on Thursday flooded a board meeting for the new Oakland Raiders stadium in Las Vegas and turned irate when they discovered they'd been had by a Amari Cooper Jerseys hoax.A flyer promoting "pre-job recruitment sign-ups" attracted more than 700 people to a regularly scheduled meeting of the Las Vegas Stadium Authority board.Tensions flared among some attendees after officials explained there were no jobs as of yet on the $1.9 billion project, which has many steps Bruce Irvin Jerseys that must be completed before construction can begin.Las Vegas police closed off access to the county building's parking Charles Woodson Jerseys lots after the size of the crowd ballooned.Board chairman Steve Hill denounced the flyer after the meeting, saying, "If folks were brought to the meeting under a false pretense, I think that's too bad, that obviously shouldn't happen."But he added that the attendance "exhibits a real Latavius Murray Jerseys desire on the part of a number of people in the community to go to work."The fake flyer specifically targeted black men and women and advertised for union and non-union positions.Raiders executives and members of the group that the team has assembled to carry out the project spoke at Thursday's meeting and said they are working on an agreement that will address minority hiring and reaffirmed that they will meet a state-mandated 15 percent contracting of small businesses."The Raiders take this obligation very seriously," Raiders Executive Vice President Dan Ventrelle said of the so-called community benefits plan, which will outline the hiring of a diverse workforce. "We embrace working within the outline of the legislation and meeting all of its requirements."The board is expected to discuss the plan at its August meeting, as well as an agreement that would allow the football team of Khalil Mack Jerseys the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to use the 65,000-seat stadium that will be built near the Las Vegas Strip. The board must approve those two and other documents before any ground breaking. The team wants to play in Sin City starting in 2020.Guests of hotels and other lodging facilities in the Las Vegas area are contributing $750 million through a room tax increase. On Thursday, the board learned the tax increase yielded more than $13.1 million from March through May. That's 16 percent ahead of projections.The team and the NFL are expected to contribute $500 million to the project. In addition, the team has secured a $650 million loan from Bank of America to cover the rest of the project's cost.
