Song which should have been our national anthem

The song authored by bankim chandra chatterjee was the epicenter of our freedom struggle.
Tho the song helds the highest honour in our country but it has never perceived as national anthem
i dont know why, may be it is not compatible with our great secularism
anyway lets enjoy the divine "VANDE MATARAM'

Vande Mataram
Sujalam, Suphalam,
Malayaja Shitalam,
Shasya shyamalam, Mataram

Shubhra jyotsna Pulakita yaminim
Phulla Kusumita
Drumadala Shobhinim,
Suhasinim, Sumadhura Bhashinim,
Sukhadam, Varadam, Mataram

Sapta Kotikantha
Kalakala Ninada Karale
Dvisapt Koti Bhujair Dhrita
Khara Karavale
Abala Kena Ma Eta Bale
Bahubala Dharinim,
Namami Tarinim,

Ripudalavarinim Mataram
Tvam Hi Durga
Dashpraharana Dharini,
Kamala, Kamaladalaviharini, Vani,
Vidyadayani, Namami Tvam,
Namami, Kamalam,
Amalam, Atulam,
Sujalam, Suphalam, Mataram,
Vande Mataram

Shyamalam, Saralam,
Susmitam, Bhushitam,
Dharanim, Bharanim Mataram

English translation

Mother, I bow to thee!
Rich with thy hurrying streams,
bright with orchard gleams,
Cool with thy winds of delight,
Green fields waving Mother of might, Mother free.

Glory of moonlight dreams,
Over thy branches and lordly streams,
Clad in thy blossoming trees,
Mother, giver of ease
Laughing low and sweet!
Mother I kiss thy feet,
Speaker sweet and low!
Mother, to thee I bow.

Who hath said thou art weak in thy lands
When swords flash out in seventy million hands
And seventy million voices roar
Thy dreadful name from shore to shore?
With many strengths who art mighty and stored,
To thee I call Mother and Lord!
Thou who saves, arise and save!
To her I cry who ever her foe drove
Back from plain and sea
And shook herself free.
