|English: Where Teesta and Rangeet Flow|
de facto State song of Sikkim
|Lyrics||Sanu Lama, 1970|
|Music||Dushyant Lama, 1970|
The Kingdom of Sikkim became a British protectorate in 1860 and following Indian independence in 1947, became a protectorate of India in 1950. During this period, Sikkim was an absolute monarchy ruled by a monarch known as the Chogyal. During this period, the national anthem of Sikkim was Denjong Silé Yang Chagpa Chilo (Why is Sikkim Blooming So Fresh and Beautiful?).
Jahan Bagcha Teesta Rangeet was released 4 April 1970 to mark the birthday of the then Chogyal Palden Thondup Namgyal. Following a referendum in 1975, Sikkim became a state of India and the monarchy was abolished. The song was initially prohibited by the Indian authorities as it contained a reference to the Sikkemese monarchy. It was later reinstated with slightly altered lyrics which replaced the words "king and queen" with "motherland". Nowadays, the song is used as the de facto state song for Sikkim, played at state government functions.
JANHA BAGCHA TEESTA RANGIT,
Where Teesta and Rangeet flow ahead
