Rabindranath Tagore JayanMaharashtra, January 23, 2012: Bollywood playback singers Roopkumar and Sonali Rathod alongwith a host of celebrities and thousands of people would lead a record-breaking tribute to 100 years of the National Anthem on January 25 in Aurangabad.

Tushar Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson will join them in their attempt to create a Guinness World Record for the maximum number of people in any country singing their national anthem in unison.

Several other leaders and public figures are also likely to lend their voices on the momentous occasion.

An independent adjudicator from Guinness World Records will be present at the venue at Divisional Sports Complex at Garkheda, Aurangabad.

The initiative is supported by Lokmat Media.

Roopkumar Rathod said, “singing Jana Gana Mana to set a world record is a befitting and rousing way to commemorate one hundred years of the National Anthem.”

He said it will be our small tribute to the great composition of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore.

On December 27, 2011, Jana Gana Mana had completed 100 years after being first sung at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress on that day in 1911.

It was declared the Indian National Anthem by the Constituent Assembly on January 24, 1950.
