“Vande Mataram…

Sujalaam Sufalaam Malayaj Sheetalaam

Sasyashyaamalaam Maataram

Vande Mataram…”

These lyrics were written by a man called Bankim Chandra Chatterjee and they can send shivers down the spine of any Indian who hears them. Such is the power of music. Such is the power of our national song.

This Independence Day, Sarod maestro Ustad Amjad Ali Khan pays tribute to the soulful musical inspiration of innumerable freedom fighters, who found refuge in the sincere and patriotic melody of “Vande Mataram.” He has featured, along with his sons, Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan, in an instrumental music video presented by Taj Mahal Tea .

On this day, savour the taste of freedom. Happy Independence Day to one and all.
