    Sometimes a nation is a state of mind.

    Antonia ji,

    Guru Fateh.

    Well said.

    a nation is defined as:

    The English word "nation" is derived from the Latin term natio (nātĭō, stem nātiōn-), meaning:[6][7]
    • The action of being born; birth; or
    • The goddess personifying birth; or
    • A breed, stock, kind, species, race; or
    • A tribe, or (rhetorically, any) set of people (contemptuous); or
    • A nation or people.
    A nation is a body of people who share a common history, culture, language or ethnic origin, who typically inhabit a particular country or territory - New
    Oxford Dictionary.


    My definition of Nation is the supreme allegience(physical).

    Is mine my Religion or my country? - take your pick !

    Isnt that a stanza from Chandi Chraittar? The part of "Dasam Granth" that praises Durga. Durga is often referred to as Shiva.
    The author is clearly asking Goddess Durga for a boon. The type of boon is clearly related to what the author praises Durga/Shiva for.
    So I fail to see why this would be our national anthem.

    Also,
    reference
