Tomar holo shuru, amar holo shara
Tomay amay mile emni bahe dhara
You set out as I end;
Such a stream founts as we blend.
For you the light does glitter,
At home with mate you are.
For me is the night,
The stars above only I sight.
You have the shore,
For me the seas roar.
You have station,
Mine is motion.
You preserve, I undo,
You fear, I brave in lieu.
Among the Hindu gods, Vishnu is the protector of Creation while Shiva is for its destruction. One will agree, concepts of Vishnu and Shiva are more philosophical, rather than religious, to perceive these dual faces of Existence. This song brings out this very philosophical perception.
