Parjaay: Prem O Prokriti (2)

Raag: Bhupali

Written on: 1879

Published in: Bharati

Swarabitan: Notation not available

Notes: This song was published in the year 1879 in the magazine 'Bharati' along with another song 'Giyaachhe Sedin ...' while Rabindranath was in England. The poem with a heading 'Briddha Kobi' had Bhupali as the indication of raag. A note in English was enclosed along with, which read:

Translated from an English translation of the poem by the Talharian the Welsh poet.

This happens to be an extremely rare incident where Rabindranath had translated a poem of another language and acknowledged it as Rabindra sangeet. Another matter seems to bother that the tune remains untraceable, although the fact that it had been included in the collection Rabichhaya makes it evident that it had a tune. The magazine Bharati too seems to indicate the existence of a tune.

Transliteration in English

Mon hote prem jetechhe shukaaye, jeeban hotechhe shesh  
Shithil kopol, molin nayan, tushardhabal kesh  
Pashete amar neerabe poriya ajatane beenakhani –
Bajabar bal nahiko e hate, jorimajarita banee  
Geetimoyee mor sahachoree beena, hoilo bidaay nite  
Aar ki paribi dhalibare tui amrita chite  
Tob ekbar, aar ekbar tyajibar age pran
Morite morite gaiya loibo sadher se sab gan  
Dulibe amaar samadhi upare torugon sakha tuli –
Banadebatara gahibe takhan maraner ganguli
