Random Quote of the Day - 9/22/2010

"But of all these friends and lovers... There is no one compares with you. And these memories lose their meaning... When I think of love as something new. Though I know I'll never lose affection... For people and things that went before... I know I'll often stop and think about them... In my life, I love you more." ~ Beatles "In My Life"

Praan





The lyrics are from the poem Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore,
sung by Palbasha Siddique.
Lyrics (with English translation) for the music, Praan by Garry Schyman, are below...

Praan

Bhulbona ar shohojete
Shei praan e mon uthbe mete
Mrittu majhe dhaka ache
je ontohin praan

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami
(Repeat 2X)

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
dao more shei gaan

Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde
Chittobinar taare
Shotto-shundu dosh digonto
Nachao je jhonkare!

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami
(Repeat 3X)

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami

Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
dao more shei gaan




Stream of Life
[English translation of Praan]

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day

runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.


It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth

in numberless blades of grass

and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.


It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth

and of death, in ebb and in flow.


I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.

And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
