9th May

Today is 25th of Baisakh of bangla calender, Rabindra Nath Tagores birthday. It is a state holiday here in West Bengal state. There are processions and Rabindra Sangeet functions all over the state in small and big cities. Biggest is in Rabindra Sadan Hall in Kolkata, where once the biggest attraction was Hemant Kumar for his renowned Rabindra Sangeets. One of his finest songs I am covering today. I have tried to catch the spirit rather than strictly following the notation. Hope you will enjoy this raw vocal without instrumentation.

Original Hemant Kumar rendition:


Naba anande jago aaji
[Be awaken up in the new pleasure on this auspicious day]

Naba rabi kirane
[In the light of new Sun]

Shuvra sundar preeti ujjwal nirmal jivane
[in a white beautiful shined by affection flawless life]

Utsarita naba jivan nirjhar
[The new falls of life is today blossomed]

Uchchasita asha geeti
[Song of hope is over flowing]

Amreeta puspa gandha bahe aaji ei santa pavane
[Fragrance of ageless flower is blowing in the peaceful wind today]
