I have heard this anthem and it used to be sung in the convent school I went
to in the early 50's instead of the present "Jana Gana Mana" after any
school show like the sports and concerts.
I think the words were
" From Cape Comorain (spelling may be wrong) to Everest's peak."
It may have been the anthem song for India during the British Raj.
