Meghalaya Assembly Gives Folksy Touch To National Anthem

Meghalaya Assembly Speaker Metbah Lyngdoh has announced the recreated version of 'National Anthem' in Shilong ahead of the 50th anniversary of Meghalaya's statehood in 2022. The idea behind it was to give local flavor to the song, sung by non-Hindi speakers. "I found out the rules and regulations in order not to run into any problems later on... what is permitted and what is not," said Lamphang Syiemlieh, a musician.
