Raag: Bibhas-Kirtan

Anga: Kirtan

Written on: 21st September 1895

Swarabitan: 35

Notation by: Jyotirindranath Tagore

Notes: Amala Das, sister of Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, was a close friend of Mrinalini Devi, wife of Rabindranath and an exceptional singer. In fact, she was often treated like a member of Tthakurbari. Her personal expenses were almost regularly seen to be met by the treasury of Tthakurbari. This song, written by Rabindranath is believed to be a serene picture of the gossiping duo of Amala Das and Mrinalini Devi.

Transliteration in English

Olo soi, olo soi,
Aamar ichchha kore toder maton moner katha koi
Chariye diye pa dukhani kone bose kanakani,
Kabhu hase kabhu kade chaye bose roi
Olo sai, olo sai,
Toder ache maner katha, amar ache koi
Ami ki balibo, kar katha, kon sukh, kon byatha 
Nai katha, tabu sadh sato katha koi
Olo sai, olo sai,
Toder ato ki baliber ache bhabe abak hoi
Ami aka basi sandha hole apni bhasi nayanjale,
Karon kaho sudhaile nirab hoye roi
