Tagore song: Eai monihaar amai nahi shaje posted and translated by Ranu
Rabindranath Tagore wrote this song somewhere overseas, he received an overwhelming welcome from the people who gathered to receive him ,at that point he hadn’t received the Nobel Prize for literature for his work in Gitanjoli.He was so surprised he wrote this song asking forgiveness from God.
This expensive garland does not suit me,
When I try to wear it, it hurts,
If I try to tear it, it rings,
It blocks my voice
and words do not come out
I cannot concentrate on my work,
because my mind is attracted there.
This is why I am waiting
If I can put this expensive garland
on you my Lord, I will get relief
accept me with the string of this
garland of flowers.
I am embarrassed to show you this garland
This garland does not suit me!
