Truth Behind “Indian National Anthem is the best in the world – UNESCO” !
UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), has announced that the Indian National Anthem is the best in the world. Claims that UNESCO has chosen the Indian National Anthem as the best in the world appear to be unfounded. The story is currently circulating via email, and has also been posted to many blogs and forums, especially those that target an Indian audience. However, I could not find any evidence whatsoever that confirms the rather fanciful claim in the message.
While real fact is there is nothing about such an announcement on the UNESCO website, nor are there any credible news reports that back up the claim in any way. If such an announcement was true, it seems very likely that it would have been widely reported – and one would suspect, hotly debated – in media outlets both in India and around the world. Thus, it seems apparent that the story is no more than another pointless Internet rumour with no basis in fact. As its name suggests, UNESCO conducts very important work on an international scale in the spheres of education, science and culture. Therefore, it seems extremely unlikely that UNESCO would waste its valuable time and resources on the rather frivolous, and ultimately meaningless, exercise of nominating the world’s best national anthem.
