We provide the meaning of Tagore songs in English on the basis of visitor's request. Translating a Tagore song is very difficult, hope you will agree. We provide this service according to our capability, feelings and knowledge which may differ with others. We do not wish to claim these as serious translations as the site has its focus on the better reproduction of the songs. Translations of regional feelings are never an easy proposition, that too in the form of a verse. Hence we chose to go for a form that is adaptable and equally lucid to the viewers across the globe. We give additional explanations for the typical Indian and Bengali words that may cause confusion. We even attach images where words are found insufficient. The language is deliberately kept as uncomplicated as possible. This service is absolutely free for all.

We are ready to accept such works from anyone who is willing to share with this site. The Editor holds the rights to accept or reject any write-up.

I lose all whatever I obtain from Him -
When I approach Him begging.
When He approaches me as a beggar -
Breaking the locks I find within my soul
A gem-studded chain, that I never lose.
Begging for light the dawn comes to Him,
The light so obtained falls on the ground.
When dusk He approaches to, hands stretched,
Earnest desires of darkness start flashing in layers,
And He places them on His crown.

- Translated by Anjan Ganguly

What I get when I come to his door begging, 
I lose it every time.
When He comes begging at my door
Breaking the lock I find within my soul a wealth of riches
And that does not go missing.
The dawn comes a begging to Him for light
That light prostrates on the ground 
When He approaches dusk with arms outstretched, then in layers
Blooms within its own soul the wealth of darkness
And He wears the jewel in His crown.

- Translated by Ratna De
