DP Daily Prompts: Cause, Meet Effect
You can singlehandedly create a causal relation between two things that are currently unconnected–a word and an emotion, a song and an extreme weather event, wearing a certain color and winning the lottery.what cause would you link to that effect, and why?
I hope my favorite song makes sense.
This is a song I like, the lyrics is by Kazi Nazrul Islam.
The translation of this song is by me, Ranu
If on a rainy night you remember me,
there is a storm outside ,
and tears in your eyes,
erase my name from your memory,
just like a dream of one night.
The garland you strung together,
throw it on the street.
The eastern wind will blow,
in the remote deep forest.
You will be alone,
looking outside from the window.
The lonely cuckoo will sing ,
on the branch of the tree.
You would hear someone
calling from the
banks of the Jumna river.
It would seem the flash
of lightning is looking for you,
cover your eyes with your hands,
if it is filled with tears!
Singer: Manna Dey
Lyrics: Kazi Nazrul Islam(Bengali Poet)
Thank you for sharing this. I see a connection with Tagore’s song which you posted recently because both are talking about a garland – and a special one at that.
Manna Day is one of my favorite singers too. It was nice to listen to him again :).
He was not a Bengali, but grew up in Bengal, this is why he has perfect pronunciation.
Thank you dear brother.
Thank you for sharing this. I like very much the words here and the feeling they bring up in me.
All good wishes,
Thank you so much for your comment.
Nice song and nice translation by you. Loved it.
Thank you dear Indira, I love your comment.
