Ekla chalo re -----let it burn alone!!

"Ekla chalo re.." - Rabindranath Tagore----------------------------------------------------
Jodi Tor Dak Soone Keu Na Asse
Tobe Ekla Chalo re
Ekla Chalo Ekla Chalo Ekla Chalore
Jodi Keu Katha Na Kai Ore Ore O Abhaga
Jodi Sabai Thake Mukh Firae Sabai Kare Bhay
Tabe Paran Khule
O Tui Mukh Fute Tor Maner Katha Ekla Balo re
Jodi Sabai Fire Jai Ore Ore O Abhaga
Jodi Gahan Pathe Jabar Kale Keu Feere Na Chay
Tobe Pather Kanta
O Tui Rakta Makha Charan Tale Ekla Dalo re
Jodi Alo Na Dhare Ore Ore O Abhaga
Jodi Jharr Badale Andhar Rate Duar Deay Ghare
Tobe Bajranale
Apaan Buker Panjar Jaliey Nieye Ekla Jalo re
"Ekla chalo re.." meaning just walk alone...
So here you go with the english translation:
If they answer not to thy call walk alone,
If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,
O thou of evil luck,open thy mind and speak out alone.
If they turn away, and desert you when crossing the wilderness,
O thou of evil luck,trample the thorns under thy tread,
and along the blood-lined track travel alone
If they do not hold up the light when the night is troubled with storm,
O thou of evil luck,
with the thunder flame of pain ignite thy own heart
and let it burn alone.
Reading a magazine, and saw a small article on this beautiful song.
This iconic song, used to be one of Mahatma Gandhi's favourites.
And now I know why.
Such simple expressions, with beautiful meaning.

The day I wrote it!

Don't know what there is, to writing down your innermost thoughts, something which will never be out in the open, ....your mind refuses to think aloud, but when it comes down to words, it just flows, flows like there is a dam which could stop the flow.

I never knew that one day would arrive and bring with it the need to get some connections down on to the space. A connection between emotions, relations ..and most of all, a connection that needs to be tightened.

I've decided, that if you don't get to pour these into ears, its better u pour into the screen, the piece of paper, a medium which will give u the much needed relief. ....and contentment

Now, it shall stay as I wind back to what I loved most,...
Till next time
