‘Vande mataram’ on Mridangam – Dedicated to Martyred Soldiers – by Mysore Vadiraj
Hi Friends, On this Republic Day I have played “Vande Mātaram” on my ‘Mridangam Tarang’ series as a tribute to our country. This is first of its kind on Percussion instruments. Vande Mataram is a national song of India written by Sri Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay. It was written in Sanskrit and Bengali. This song is in the ‘Raag Desh & set to Aadi thalam’. I dedicate this song to my Country, Indian soldiers & martyred soldiers who died in Siachen Avalanche last year.
I thank my dear friend Lakshmi Ram for helping me in scripting & my mother for video & continous support.
Lyrics: Vande mātaram ,Vande mātaram
sujalāṃ suphalāṃ,malayaja śhītalām
śasya śyāmalāṃ mātaram
śubhra jyotsna pulakita yāminīm
phulla kusumita, drumadala shobhinīm
suhāsinīṃ, sumadhura bhāṣiṇīm
sukhadāṃ varadāṃ mātaram
vande mātaram, vande mātaram
Mother, I bow to thee!
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
bright with orchard gleams,
Cool with thy winds of delight,
Dark fields waving Mother of might,
Glory of moonlight dreams,
Over thy branches and lordly streams,
Clad in thy blossoming trees,
Mother, giver of ease
Laughing low and sweet!
Mother I kiss thy feet,
Speaker sweet and low!
Mother, to thee I bow.
