India has a National Song. It is distinct from the national anthem (Jana Gana Mana) and enjoys the same popularity and an official status.
It is the song “Vande Mataram“ (which mean, i bow to thee, Mother) composed by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay in 1892.
It played an important role in the independence movement and was first sung in the 1896 session of the Indian National Congress. The 1st two verses of the song were adopted at the national song in 1950.
The song is a hymn to Goddess Durga who is identified as the national personification of India.
