Vande Mataram paintings by K Tejendra Kumar Mitra

Vande Mataram in painting
In recent controversy on Vande Mataram I would like to tell you about a book, rarest of his type. Bandemataram Album, this extremely rare and out of print book contains the full English Translation of Bandemataram song by Aurobindo Ghosh. This book also contains rare and beautiful paintings by K Tejendra Kumar Mitra illustrating some of the gloriously symbolic Sanskrit words in the Vande Mataram song.
  • Cover page of the book 1923
  • This is the front cover page of a nationalistic journal called ? Vijaya? which was shifted from Chennai to Pondicherry in 1909. This cover page appeared in the August 1909 Issue of this Journal.

  1. Thank you Tusar for those beutiful and invaluable paintings of Bande Mataram.
    The present controversy over Bande Mataram is caused by the down-gradation of our our national political character. The present-day political leaders have grown morally and ideally much poorer and spineless and to a great extent unpatriotic, having lost all historical sense.
