Parjaay: Natya-geeti (3)

Taal: Madhyamaan

Raag: Mishra-Behag-Purbi-Kafi

Written on: 1878

Published in: Bharati

Collection: Bhagna-hridoy

Swarabitan: 20

Notation by: Jyotirindranath Tagore

Notes: Rabindranath had been to Ahmadabad before his visit to England in May 1877. It was intended that he would be pursuing for a barrister or a ICS degree in England. He had stayed at his elder brother (Mej-dada), Satyendranath's official residence, a palatial building beside the Savarmati river. In the summer nights he used to roam about the roof of the building all alone. The first four lines of the song was written in a sleepless night without giving much importance to its meter. The following lines he had written much later, this time with the application of a genteel metering.

But the typical urge of a sleepless crazy boy or the ambience of the Savarmati was completely missing in these lines.

This comment was made by the poet in 'Jibonsmriti'.

According to Sri Subhas Chowdhury the tune appears to be composed by Jyotirindranath Tagore

Neerabo rajanee dekho magno jochhonaay  
Dheere dheere, oti dheere, oti dheere gao go   
Ghumaghormoy gan bibhabori gaay  
Rajaneer kantha sathe sukantha milao go   
Nishar kuhakbale neerabatasindhutale
Magna hoye ghumaichhe biswacharachar  
Prashanta sagare henataranga na tule jeno
Adheer uchhwasmoy sangeeter swar  
Tatinee kee shanto achhe  ghumaiya poriyachhe
Bataser mriduhasta parashe emni
Bhule jodi ghume ghume tater charan chume
Se chumbandhwani shune chamake apani  
Tai boli, oti dheere,oti dheere gaao go  
Rajaneer kantha sathe sukantha milao go
