Mumbai: When India locked horns with Bangladesh, India came out with one intention – to produce a brilliant performance which will help them to enter the semis. Whereas, Bangladesh would look to avoid defeat against India and Pakistan to ensure that they stay in hunt in the race.
This is a must win match for both sides, with India doesn’t want to repeat their mistakes, especially after suffering humiliating 31-runs defeat at the hands of England. While, Bangladesh have to win this match as this match would determine whether they would qualify for the semis or not.
Despite India and Bangladesh’s fate lies in their own hands, there’s one thing which they share equally – national anthem. Both India and Bangladesh have different national anthem, but the anthem was penned down by famous Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore.
Before the match began – that is during the national anthem – the Indian and Bangladeshi crowd stood together and lauded Tagore for creating such heart-touching anthem. Even the netizens took to social media and recalled Tagore for penning down Jana Gana Mana and Amar Sonar Bangla.
Tagored penned down Jana Gana Mana on January 24, 1950. However, Rabindranath wrote Amar Sonar Bangla as an ode to the Mother Bengal in 1905 during Bengal’s first partition. Take a look at the tweets below.
