Shokatorey Oi Kandichhe Shokoley

powered by ODEO

Can you hear that Father?
They are crying, distressed, weak.
Can you hear them?
Speak into their ears
Talk to their souls
Give them the Word of Prosperity.

Living with tiny expectations
Living with anxiety
Losing whatever they get
...Beyond all consolation

Happiness calls from various directions
Like a mirage on the desert plains
...The thirsty is left to wander piteously

The day ends.
The game ends.
Evening falls.
The troubled soul then cries aloud
...Trembling with fear.

Oh Father of the world,
What does Destiny have in store?
Where does Peace reside?

Give yourself, Father,
They need you!
Fulfill their hopes,
Come close to them.

Oh listen to them, Father.
They are crying...sad... distressed...

Karnati bhajan
Composed by Rabindranath Tagore when he was twenty-two years of age.

Dedicated to the deceased and wounded of Nandigram
P.S: I've sung this song in the middle of highfever and sinusitis. So, please overlook any singing errors. Thanks!

Very few people have actually gone ahead to dedicate songs to victims of political massacres. For that reason, here's a thumbs up to you, Mousmi. I was lazily browsing when your slide show, and your song caught my attention. You've got yourself a fan!

You fulfilled one of my dreams today - I had always wanted to listen to Tagore's compositions.
How soulfully you have rendered this song! Thank you very much for this.
