ANSWER: Bishan Narayan Dar
' Jana Gana mana ' was first sung on the second day of the annual conference of the Indian National Congress in Calcutta on December 27, 1911. Sarala Devi Chowdhurani, Tagore's niece intoned the song, along with a few schoolstudents, in front of the gathering of the INC president Bishan Narayan Dar and other leaders such as Bupendra Nath Bose and Ambika Charan Mazumder. Soon after the Congress conference, in January 1912, the song first appeared before the public under the title Bharata-vidhata in Tottvobodhini Patrika.
