Notation by: Dinendranath Tagore

Notes: This song was written on 28th June, 1922 at Shantineketan.

The first musical soiree for the public was held in Calcutta in the year 1922. The rehearsed version was staged in Shantiniketan on 22nd Shravan, 1329B. The review was published in the Bhadra-Ashwin number of ‘Shantiniketan’ magazine. It read –

… Barsha-mangal was celebrated in the newly constructed Childrens’ Section on the full moon night of the Shravan. The floor of the courtroom was decorated with wonderful design by the ladies of the Ashram. Further it was ornamented with beautifully crafted flowers and leaves by the Chief of Arts Section of Visva Bharati, Mr.Nandalal Basu, Mr.Surendranath Kar and Mr.Asitkumar haldar with the help of their students. Respected Gurudev, Mr. Dinendranath Tagore, Pd.Bhimrao Shastri and the students of the music section had presented several new songs. When Gurudev started the song ‘Aaj Aakasher Moner Kotha …’, monsoon flow had been intense and drenched the dark night. The poet periodically stopped and recited three of his poems ‘Jhulan’, ‘Barsha-mangal’ and ‘Nirupama’. Brief strokes on the Veena accompanied the songs and faded. The evening unfolded by the union of nature and human being was surely a memorable one. Not many such evenings are experienced in a lifetime. ...

According to the news published the poet had stopped singing the song midway to recite his poems and returned to the song once again. It must be a unique experiment of blending songs and poems if this interpretation holds good.

Aaj aakasher moner katha jharo jharo baaje
Saara prohar aamar buker maajhe.
Dighir kaalo jaler paare    megher chhaaya ghoniye dhare,
Baatas bahe jugantarer praachin bedona je
Saara prohar aamar buker maajhe.
Aandhar baatayane
Ekla aamar  kaanakaani oi aakasher saane.
Mlaansmritir baani jato  pallobomarmorer mato
Sajal sure otthe jegey jhillimukhar snaajhe
Saara prohar aamar buker maajhe.
