Song of India

I have always loved watching traditional Indian dance. I took two summers of Bharatanatyam dance when I was a clumsy pre-teen, and found it physically very difficult but aesthetically very wonderful. I have always loved Indian food, especially when it is prepared by a professional, but I had no idea that India had such a beautiful national anthem until this evening, when it was used to open an Indian variety show at the University of Illinois. If you (like me) are new to it, you can follow a translation and read about Jana Gana Mana here. Thanks for taking us to India Night, Rachel!
