Happy Independence Day, Fellow Indians
This was the part of a play called Anand Math written by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee(1838-1894). The sanskrit song is in italics.
The version of this song I like the best is the Revival from A.R.Rehman's Vande Mataram album.
cool with the winds of the south,
dark with the crops of the harvests,
Her nights rejoicing in the glory of the moonlight
Phullakusumita dramadala shobinim
her lands clothed beautifully with her trees in flowering bloom
Suhasinim sumadhura bhashinim
sweet of laughter, sweet of speech
Sukhadam varadam mataram
giver of bliss, giver of boons, the Mother
I bow to thee, Mother.
