The centennial of the national anthem “Jana Gana Mana” is being celebrated in different ways all over the country. City-based goldsmith Sk. Musaveer has hit upon a novel idea and he has given a golden touch to the celebrated anthem.

Musaveer's passion led him to carve out 139 words of the anthem in gold in a frame. The miniature work has won him appreciation from everyone.

Mr. Musaveer has been nursing this dream about his novel miniature work and the occasion of the centenary was an ideal time.

When his fellow countrymen were showing their patriotic fervour on this momentous event in various ways, Musaveer chose his own method, which was in a way linked to his profession to express his feelings.

Miniature flag

Mr. Musaveer said that the weight of the miniature golden anthem was nearly 1.2 gram with height and width being 11 mm and 6 mm. He also came out with a miniature National Flag with its weight being 0.80 mg.

Mr. Musaveer pointed out that the anthem was first sung at the Kolkata session of the Indian National Congress on December 27, 1911.

The Constituent Assembly officially adopted the anthem on January 24, 1950.
