Tagore Song,Singer: Madhurima Sen translated and posted by Ranu


I will hoist my sail in your open breeze

I will cut the cable and attach it to my sail,

I’m willing to drown

In your open breeze

……………………………

I wasted my  morning,

My afternoon followed suit

Do not hold me back,

I’m willing to drown near the shore

……………………………………

I am staying  awake for the boatman, every night

The waves are busy playing with me

I will make storm my friend

I will not be afraid of its frown

Leave me alone, I’d feel better in the storm

I am willing to drown!

…………………………:)

Tagore song: Tomar khola hawa

I lift the sail to your open breeze

By dividing the cable into pieces

I agree to drown in your open breeze

My morning was useless

My afternoon is not much better

Do not hold me back or confine me

Near the shore

I am willing to drown

I stay awake all night for the boatman

The waves take me and play with me

I will befriend the storm,

I will not be afraid of its frown

Release me I’m happy when it’s stormy!

DP Daily Prompt: Trains,Rails, Automobiles Or Something Else entirely different by Ranu

Rowboat

Rowboat (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I have chosen a rowboat for this prompt. My husband’s family lived in the village. Two days after my marriage, I was scheduled to travel to the village, where my in-law’s lived.

This was my first experience on a rowboat. My father was not too enthusiastic taking us to his village because of transportation.Here I was on a narrow boat,the ceiling touching my head. I was a new bride and therefore it was not appropriate to complain.The pace was slow,I wasn’t aware how long it would be before I could free  myself from the pressure of everyone around me.

The boatman was taking his time rowing,he was used to this. He felt great, he was feeling important,my husband hired him.

After about two hours we reached the place where we were to disembark. The wharf,where we were supposed to get off looked like a slimy mound of earth. I was terrified,this was my first time,and I was wearing a sari not the best attire to alight on a slippery path. Embarrassment aside I asked my brother-in-law’s help. With his assistance I was able to walk on the path and reach the building. I breathed a sigh of relief when I crossed this hurdle!
