Another bengali semi-classical sad song of KKji this week and again tuned by the great Kishore Kumar. If one is a blind fan of Kkji-s voice, then please listen the original Kkji song referenced below. What a voice Kkji produced on recording day and what an expert recordist he got that day. I have tried several times with different tones to match KKji-s tone but could not come anything near him. And I realised why his songs are still played as number 1 in FM channels after 30 years of his death.

Original Kishore Kumar version:

Song: Amar dweep nebhano raat
Lyrics: Gouri Prasanna Majumdar
Music: Kishore Kumar

Lyrics meaning:

Amar dweep nevano raat
[My light-extinguishing night]

Nei dookkhe keu sathi haye
[No companion is with me in distress]

Jeevan amar jeno vanga ek swapno
[My life is as if a broken dream]

Jhad lege jhore jaoya phul
[as if a flower fallen by storm]

Bhalobasa gade je kacher i swargo
Se to ek sundar bhul
[The glass heaven made by love is a beautiful mistake]

Haal bhanga kheya padi dite giye haye
pelo na to khunje taar kul
[Riding a boat with a broken helm never finds the shore]
Je pakhir buke teer bindhe ache
[How a bird with an arrow stuck in its chest]

ki kore bala se gaan gaye
[can sing a song, you say?]

Mone ki rakhe kakhono akash
kon tara kabe jhode jaye
[Does the sky ever remember when a star has extinguished?]

Sesh nei chalar nei to thikana
path sudhu pode ache paye
[There is no end in walking, no address of destination,
only a path is laid under my feet]
