Parjaay: Prem (57)

Upa-parjaay: Prem-Boichitra

Taal: Ektaal

Raag: Kalangara

Written on: 1893

Place: Sajadpur

Swarabitan: 13

Notation by: Dinendranath Tagore

Notes: Composed on 10th July 1893 at Sajadpur.

In a letter from Sajadpur Rabindranath has written to Indira Devi at Shimla on 10th of July 1893 -

... You must have received my songs. The tune of the song Baro bedonar mato ... is perhaps not a charming one. ... These songs are to be sung in solitude. The tune, I believe, is not particularly a bad one, it doesn't seem to be an exaggeration either to accept it as a nice one. I had entuned it gradually in the bathroom - it is rather advantageous to compose in a bathroom. First of all it is lonesome, secondly free from other responsibilities - it doesn't harm your sense of duty of you keep on murmuring for five minutes after the first splash - the best part of it is that you are free to make faces as there isn't any scope for an audience. The state of mind for better compositions is never easy to reach unless faces are made. It is not all about reasoning - kind of craziness it is. I always sing this song, I had murmured it in the morning for a long time today. This song generates a strong emotional feeling while doing so. It is hence one of my favourite songs undoubtedly. I enjoy singing alone this song delightedly and in a sedate manner and the life, the reality - sunlit yet engulfed with vapours of tears, appears like a mystic and colourful rainbow - all pragmatic affairs are translated to perpetual beauty, poignance is converted into radiance.

The date written on and the date of the letter to Indira Devi seems dubious.

Transliteration in English

Baro badonar mato bajacho tumi ha amar prane
  Mon je kamon kare mane mane taha mon e jane
   Tomare hridoye kare achi nishidin dhare,
 Chaye thaki aakhi bhare mukher pane
  Baro asha, baro trisha, baro akinkan tomari lagi
Baro sukhe, baro dukhe, baro anurage rayachi jagi
 A janmer mato ar haye gache ja habar,
Bhase gache mon pran maran tane
