Rabindranath Tagore,has written a lot of poems,songs,prose, we Bengalis are fortunate to have a person like him. He has left us many years ago,we still remember him and adore him. The poem I am about to translate is my favourite.
One day this meeting will come to an end,
My eyes will close for the last time.
The night will end and daylight will begin,
The awakened world will be followed by morning.
The business of the world will continue,
mankind will be spending their time with mirth and sorrow.
I remember all this while I look at the sky
I am watching all this eagerly.
Whatever I see nothing seems worthless,
Today I think everything that I see is unattainable.
Even the worst place on this earth seems hard to get,
The world’s most unsuccessful life is unattainable.
What I didn’t get can remain what I did get that too,
still give me what I thought was worthless.
