  • JOIN US PLAY CHESS N WIN AND LET THE WHOLE WORLD SAY, "VANDE MATRAM"... IT was the national cry for freedom from British rule. Large rallies, fermenting initially in Bengal, in Calcutta, would work themselves up into a patriotic fervour by shouting the slogan "VANDE MATRAM", The British, fearful of the potential danger of an incited INDIAN populace, at one point banned the utterance of the motto in public forums, and imprisoned many freedom fighters for disobeying . Rabindranath Tagore sang "VANDE MATRAM" in 1896 at the Calcutta Congress Session held at Beadon Square. Poet Sarala Devi Chaudurani sang the song in the Benares Congress Session in 1905. Lala Lajpat Rai started a journal called Vande Mataram from Lahore..Hiralal Sen made India's first political film in 1905 which ended with the chant. Matangini Hazra's last words as she was shot to death by the Crown police were "Vande Mataram"
