    Indian express should be shot with cow dung for the heading "Complaint against Amitabh Bachchan for singing incorrect national anthem". Incorrect anthems means that it's an anthem representing a different country. Anthem incorrectly means what's explained in the article body. Shame on the editor.

            What the f is wrong with people. He sang it very nicely. What if it is 2 mins instead of 50 seconds?. The complainant must be a complete fool and anarchist who wants to rake up non issues. Such people wouldnt mind about pathetic state of so many other things in our country (poverty, filthiness, corruption, arm twisting, goondaagiri, poor infrastructure, unhygenic and uncivilized behaviour, etc), but will rake up such trivial things

              Indians now don't have anything to complaint since Modi govt took over and started to prosper the country - so now they start to complain on frivolous matters including the intolerance, "freedom", etc. It is a itch to complain that dictates such a stupid action! Grow up and start making useful otherwise such people will be left behind in a progressive country.
