Day of departure by R.Tagore translated by Ranu
On the day of my departure I want to set aside any misunderstanding so that I can say____
whatever I saw , whatever I received, there can be no comparison.
In the middle of this glowing ocean ruled by innumerable lotus flowers
I drank their honey ,this is why I am extremely grateful.
On the day of my departure this is what I hope to say
In the strange world of earthly life I played so many games,
I have seen unprecedented things with my eyes.
Those that cannot be touched gave themselves up to everyone,
if you want to end this here, then finish it here___
so that I can let all know this when I am leaving.
Extremely beautiful and lotus flower is symbolising a certain detachment. The translation looks classy.
Thank you sir.I always appreciate your kind comments.
Thank you very much for this poem.
“On the day of my departure this is what I hope to say…” ~ That line alone is worth so much.
