Theme: Love

You Are the One

You are the one
Whom my heart desires most
In this world
Save you I have none.
If you are not happy with me
Seek happiness somewhere else
But I don’t need anything more
Because I have got you in my heart.
I’ll dream of you in your absence
Lost in your thought I’ll live
Be it for days and nights
Be it for years or months.
If you love someone else
If you never return
May you then get what you want

Though I’ll get only pain.

Transcreation of one of the sweetest love songs – Amar paran jaha chay/Tumi tai tumi taigo – from the dance drama Mayar khela by Rabindranath Tagore.

Comment The poem provides to think something about seriousness of life and world.You have always presented your deep thoughts and scientific study about Tagore's philosophy through his songs.You
have lighted those corners of Tagore's views
which we didn't know till now.A lot of thanks.
Welcome Sir !

Comment Mayar Khela
The whole world a mayar khela,
Man and woman as puppets raised
Doing the puppet dance
Into the hands of destiny
When pulled or strung and loosened.

The houses we see are those of maya
Which Bhartrihari felt
In Pingla's love,
Everything but attachment,
House, wife, son, daughter.
