Tagore song, singer, Hemant Kumar, Translated by Ranu

সন্ধ্যা হল গো— ও মা,   সন্ধ্যা হল, বুকে ধরো ।
অতল কালো স্নেহের মাঝে ডুবিয়ে আমায় স্নিগ্ধ করো ॥
ফিরিয়ে নে মা, ফিরিয়ে নে গো— সব যে কোথায় হারিয়েছে গো
ছড়ানো এই জীবন, তোমার আঁধার-মাঝে হোক-না জড়ো ॥
আর আমারে বাইরে তোমার কোথাও যেন না যায় দেখা ।
তোমার রাতে মিলাক আমার জীবনসাঁজের রশ্মিরেখা।
আমায় ঘিরি আমায় চুমি   কেবল তুমি, কেবল তুমি—
আমার ব'লে যা আছে, মা, তোমার ক'রে সকল হরো ॥
It's evening dear mother, hold me in your arms.
In this deep darkness,
Let your tenderness drown me and cool me.
Take it back,  take it my dear-
 everything is lost somewhere
Let this scattered life-gather in your darkness.
And I don't want my life be visible
anywhere outside you.
Let your night unite my life's beam of light.
Only you encircle me and kiss me-
Whatever belongs to me,mother,
 make it yours and take it away.

Today’s prompt is faraway


Rafflesia: wikipedia image

Rafflesia_sumatra.jpg (600×800)Faraway in the land of Malaysia there lived a giant flower named Rafflesia. Everyone was afraid of her because she was tough and was not afraid of anyone.

When, ‘Forget-me -not,’ heard about Rafflesia, she shrugged and said, ‘who cares if this one is huge, I’m not afraid, everyone knows me my name is, Forget me not. No one will ever forget me, she is big but not everyone knows her.’

Rafflesia’s friend Daffodil told her what Forget me not said about her. Rafflesia decided to round up her friends, Marigold, Sun Flower, Rose, Peony and Bougainvillea, together they’d attack them Forget me nots and teach them a lesson that they’d remember as long as they live.

“I have a question, said Rose, how will we teach them  a lesson, do you Rafflesia have a plan?”

“It will take a second or two to make one, she bawled, and I do not want to have weak friends in my group.”

The stage was set, Rafflesia head of her group notified Forget me nots to meet her group in a garden in Indonesia, Malaysia or Thailand.

“Well said Forget me not, I’m sure it’s impossible to go there, I’ll have to call a truce and wave the white flag.”

From that day, Forget me not learned boasting is not a good thing. No one is superior, they are just different!

Books, Reading challenge.


Hi all, I’ve read 17 books so far, my challenge is to read 25 books. The last one I read was a disappointment, but it seems I’m supposed to read all varieties the Good, the Bad and the Uninteresting.

If you love mystery Dan Brown’s novel, ‘The Lost Symbol, ‘ will entertain you if you don’t mind the quarrel between father and son. Who do you think had the last laugh?

Good luck to all the challengers.  🙂
