Parjaay: Puja (418)

Upa-parjaay: Bibidha

Taal: Tritaal

Anga: Khayal

Written on: 1887

Collection: Gaaner Bohi

Swarabitan: 22

Notation by: Kangalicharan Sen

Bhanga Gaan: Balmare chunariya mainko laal ranga de... (Suha-kanara, Tritaal)

Notes: This song was first sung on 24th January 1888, on the occasion of Maahhotsava.

While commenting on the addition of taan (a typical element of improvisation in the Hindustani classical music) upon his compositions Dinendranath Tagore has quoted the poet in 'Sangeet sambandhe jathakinchit' with a reference to this song ...

... 'It is often said that a song suffers from monotony if its rendition is same each time. Variation, hence is a must.

... Variations and elaborations are confined within Hindi songs only as the lyrics of Hindi songs are not impregnated with the tune to form a single unit. Suppose a Suha-kanara is being sung supported by a frivolous piece of lyric, like - "Balmare chunariya mainko laal ranga de ..." meaning O' dear, colourize my veil with red. This veil can be well expanded like the way the veil of Droupadi was drawn in the court of the Kouravas. Although, the same tune may be adapted to Bangla words 'Naatho hey, premopothe sob baadha bhaangiya daao ...'. It can hardly withstand an expansion.
