Parjaay: Prem (29)

Upa-parjaay: Prem-Boichitra

Taal: Kaharwa

Raag: Behag

Written on: 1894

Swarabitan: 50 (Shephali)

Notation by: Dinendranath Tagore

Notes: This song was composed in the occasion of the marriage of Sudhindranath Tagore, Dwijendranath's son with Chaarubaala on this day. The manuscript of the song bears the words 'On Sudhi's marriage-day', inscribed by the poet himself.

While commenting on a poem written by Christina Rossetti in a letter to Indira Devi written on 12th March1895 (letter no 115, Chhinna patrabali) Rabindranath had criticized the song -

... I like the poem by Christina that you have sent. In the verse the main theme is covered within the first four lines, although, they are followed by some more lines where the thought doesn't seem to propagate any more, it is stifled on the contrary. In quite a few poems the Aasthayee appears to be complete of its own, the Antara is a mare flamboyance � where the poet seems to follow the practice. As it is seen in my 'Baajilo kaahaar bina ...' - the thought has been contained within the first few lines, yet some more lines are added just to follow the rules. As if the poet wishes to continue despite the music has ended.

Transliteration in English

Baajilo kaahar bina  modhur sware
Amar nibhrito nabo jibanpore
Prabhatkamolsamo phutilo hridoy mamo
Kar duti nirupamcharontore
Jege othe sob sobha,   sob madhuri,
Poloke poloke hiyapuloke puri
Kotha hote samiran   aane nabo jagorone,
Paraner aboron   mochon kore
Laage buke sukhe duke  koto je byatha,
Kemone bujhaye kabo  na jani kotha
Aamar basona aajitribhubane uthe baaji,
Knaape nodi bonorajibedonabhore
