  • Tagore song, You have set my life alight : Rabindranath Tagore
    translated from Bengali to English by Prasenjit Gupta

    But you’ve set my life alight with the fire of your melody And now this fire’s spreading everywhere. From branch to branch in these lifeless trees the fire dances its beat, its beat, yes, Lifting its arms to someone, to the sky. Every star of the dark stares speechless― From where does this frenzied breeze blow this way? On midnight’s breast this clear, this golden, lotus blooms, yes; Who can tell what powers belong to fire.

    "tumi je surer aagun..", Puja, No. 6.
