ग्रस्तमाने रवौ स्नायात्

ग्रस्तमाने रवौ स्नायात् मुच्यमाने निशाकरः।
सूर्येन्दुग्रहणं यावत् तावत् कुर्याज्जपादिकम्॥
न स्वपेन्न च भुञ्जीत स्नात्वा भुञ्जीत मुक्तयोः॥
grastamāne ravau snāyāt mucyamāne niśākaraḥ|
sūryendugrahaṇaṁ yāvat tāvat kuryājjapādikam||
na svapenna ca bhuñjīta snātvā bhuñjīta muktayoḥ||
One should bathe [also] after the start of the solar eclipse, and after the completion of the lunar eclipse.
As long as the eclipse is on, one must do maximum japam
Neither should one sleep nor should one eat, [during the eclipse], and after bathing at the end of the eclipse only must one eat

वन्दे भारतमातरम्

रत्नाकरधौतपदां हिमालयकिरीटिनीम् ।
ब्रह्मराजर्षिरत्नाढ्यां वन्दे भारतमातरम् ॥
ratnākaradhautapadāṃ himālayakirīṭinīm |
brahmarājarṣiratnāḍhyāṃ vande bhāratamātaram ||
To her whose feet are washed by the ocean, who wears the Himalayas as her crown.
[Who] is adorned with the gems of great brahma-rishis and raja-rishis, to Mother Bharatam, do I bow down in respect.

[I found this on the signature of a user on hindu dharma forums]
