Tagore song: Tomar kautha hetha keho toh bolena kauray shudhu meechhay kolahol

Tomaar Kautha keho toh bolena: Lyrics by Tagore, Translation by Ranu

No one talks about you here

They only make useless noise

They are busy drinking deadly poison

In the sea of nectar

They have lost their self worth

They cannot swim

They have lost their sense of direction

They drift away with the waves unsteadily

And eventually drown in the sea

Where will I go,who will I ask

They have   taken  me by force

I knew they will leave me by myself

On the shoreless ocean

I look around me with tearful eyes

I am unable to carry my weight

My weak heart is trembling!!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. I like the words which convey to me seeking, longing, and a special kind of anguish.

    All good wishes,

    robert
