SENTIMENTS ABOUT THE MOTHERLAND
The song was born. But it had to reach the masses. It took about seven years for.
The power packed mantra — VANDE MATARAM— the sacred mantra of patriotism.
This slogan stirring adoration of the Motherland which inspired thousands of soldiers
The song was condemned as sectarian, for it advocated the worship of the Motherland as a Goddess. But, in the surging floods of the revolutionary and the Swadeshi movements given rise to by the mantra, Vande Mataram, the objection was completely deluged.
It is a song enshrined in the hearts of millions and millions of Indians and sanctified by the sacrifice of countless martyrs who were inspired by the song to offer their lives at the altar of the Motherland.
Let the immortal song of Rishi Bankim, provide us inspiration to live and rise up to the expectations of those countless patriots and martyrs who sacrificed their lives with Vande Mataram on their lips so that we should live as free citizens of a glorious and sovereign nation.
At last I would like to write here that OUR MOTHERLAND IS HIGHER THAN HEAVEN.
At last, I did not stop myself from writing this.
सुजलां सुफलाम् मलयजशीतलाम्.
सुहासिनीं सुमधुर भाषिणीम्
सुखदां वरदां मातरम्।
Mahatma Gandhi supported the first two verses of Vande Mataram as a national song
