It was the new bigining. 15th August,1047. Our Gujarati Pt. Omkaranath Thakurji sung VANDE MATARM.

Now with our Gujarati Narendra Modi we are going to enjoy another bigining lets hear Panditji Again.

A function was organised at 12.00 midnight on the 14th of August 1947 (or 0000 hours of 15 August 1947) to celebrate the auspicious moment of our gaining independence. Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel sent Pt. Omkarnath Thakur (who was in the then Madras) a wireless message asking him to sing Vande Mataram at the function. Pt. Omkarnath replied that he would sing the 22 line song in full. He left Chennai by a special plane to reach Delhi. He sang Vande Mataram at the stroke of the mid night hour when we made tryst with our destiny. The song was broadcast again by Akashvani at 6:30 AM on the same day.

    અદ્ભુત બહુ ગમ્યુ. તમારા જેટ્લો સંગીતપ્રેમી નથી તે છતા પણ.

    દર શુક્ર કે શનિવારે હું મને ગમતા મ્યુઝિક વિડીયો પોસ્ટ કરું છું. જ્યારે મારી અંગત પસંદગી તમારા જેવા સંગિતપ્રિય મિત્રોને ગમે એ મારે માટે આનંદની વાત છે. મારા બ્લોગની મુલાકાત લેવા બદલ હાર્દિક આભાર.

    Dear one,—-Jai Shree Krushna,———-This is WONDERFULL. I never herd this one before. Million thanx to the one who put this video on internet. However, the comments are not very patriotic. Let us not go by GUJARATI, MARATHI etc..etc. Let us ALL act as BHARATIYA. This IS VERY IMPORTANT.—Again, whoever, put this video on internet my gratitude to him or her.———-Rohit Bhatt
