Fulfilling a long-standing demand for uniformity in its presentation, the Karnataka government on Friday fixed the duration of the ‘Nada Geeta’ (state anthem) at two-and-a-half minutes and said it would be in the same style as that composed by renowned music composer Mysore. Is. Anant Swamy. The decision has been taken based on the recommendations of a committee headed by renowned musician HR Lilavati.
“As per the recommendation of a committee headed by eminent composer HR Lilavati, the duration of the Nada Geeta will be 2.30 minutes composed by Mysore Ananth Swamy,” said Chief Minister Biswaraj Bomai. Nada Geeta – Jaya Bharat Jananya Tanujate written by renowned poet Rashtrakvi Koyampu was officially declared as the national anthem in 2004.
It is sung daily in all official functions and schools. However, there has been much debate over the duration, tune and style of Nada Geeta’s presentation, which lacks uniformity.
Kannada and Culture Minister V Sunil Kumar thanked CM Bomai for deciding the style and duration for the state anthem, saying, “Nada Geeta will be officially presented here without leaving a single word.” Until now, Nada Gethe was sung in different styles and tunes, and there were opinions about its length. There is a constant demand to shorten it and bring uniformity in the style of singing.
In 2019, the Kannada Sahitya Parishad (KSP) proposed to reduce the duration to two minutes and thirty seconds. In 2014, the Chinnaweera Convey Committee also suggested reducing the duration to one minute and 30 seconds.
