Bangladesh

 

“Amar Shonar Bangla” was written in 1906 during the British partitioning of Bengal, a time of great national unrest. The anthem was adopted in 1971 by the provisional government, and officially approved after independence on January 13, 1972. According to the constitution, the first ten lines of the original poem (the portion reproduced on the right) are official. The composer of the words and music for this anthem, a Nobel laureate for literature, also wrote the words and music to India‘s national anthem.
