DP Daily Prompt: Blogger of Repute

I’d like to think I have a good reputation, by it I don’t mean I’m an awesome writer. It means I’m easy to get along. I do not recall writing anything so far that will make one cringe.

I have translated a fair number of Tagore’s poems and songs. I love doing it. I’ve been asked by friends to doit. His poems or songs have nothing objectionable. I happen to be lucky. My native language is Bengali, same as the poet’s. Some of his writings do get lost in translation. It is a case with any translation. Still it helps to understand his poetry and the lyrics of his songs . Sometimes it lacks the deeper meaning, but I try my best.

I’ve written some stories about myself. My blogger friends and my other friends like what they read. At least this is what they say. I feel happy knowing it.

  7. Your translations of Tagore are so good that one feels the originality in them, this was made possible by your dedication and learning of the craft very quickly, as each new translation came better and better.
