His Greatest Gift
by Kumud Biswas
Bookmark and Share
  Who broadcasts so much love so freely in the sky
It floods every place
As a precious gift
The earth took it on her head
With that honey
The trees filled their green leaves
The flowers anointed their petals
The birds painted their wings
The children got it in their mothers' breast
And the mothers found it in their children's face
As a bright flame
It flares up in times of sorrow
It gushes out of the hero's heart
To stem the perils that threaten life
With the rhythms of all ups and downs
It survives vibrant
Through space and time.

Translation of the devotional song - Akashe duihate prem bilay ke o - by Rabindranath Tagore. Its best recording is by Kanika Banerji. The original with its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/4281.
