One of the greatest novelists of India who gave the 'people the sacred 'mantra'- Vande Mataram.' The Bengali Novel practically began with him. He also wrote philosophical works, which stimulated independent thinking. There is hardly an Indian who is not familiar with this National Song. Possibly, most of us do not know who composed this song.
The man who gave us this Atonal Song is Bankim Chandra Chatterjee. He wrote many novels. One of them is 'Anandamatha'. This novel contains a thrilling account of a struggle for freedom. 'Vande Mataram' appears as a part of this novel.
