VocalNationalAnthems

Written in highly Sanskritized Bengali, it is the first of five stanzas of a Brahmo hymn composed and scored by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore. It was first sung at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress on 27 December 1911. Jana Gana Mana was officially adopted by the Constituent Assembly as the Indian national anthem on January 24, 1950. An earlier poem by Tagore (Amar Shonar Bangla) was later selected as the national anthem of Bangladesh.

A formal rendition of the national anthem takes fifty-two seconds.

All About Explorers

He was a very well-educated man who attended the famous Harvard University. Hudson’s main goal as an explorer was to find a northern passage to the Orient. His first of four voyages was on a small, three-masted ship named Hopewell. He started his journey in May of 1607 and returned in September of the same year when his route was blocked by the Great Barrier Reef. The Voyages of Henry Hudson (Click to enlarge) On his second voyage, Hudson also used the Hopewell. Hudson’s third voyage was on a smaller ship named the Half Moon. The fourth and final voyage that Hudson made was on a ship called Discovery. While Hudson never did find the Northwest Passage to Asia as he had hoped, he did help to expand human knowledge with his explorations of the Pacific Ocean. Center On Congress.
