My Pole Star1.jpg
  I have made you the pole star of my life
I shall never lose my way in this sea.
Wherever I go
You always shine in my view
And shed light from your anxious eyes.
Secretly in my mind
Your image is always alive
I lose my bearings
When I lose your sight
When my heart wants to stray
Along a wrong way
Your remembrance fills it with shame.

Translation of the famous love song - Tomarei koriachhi jibaner dhrubatara - by Rabindranath Tagore. Best recording of this song is by Dwijen Mukherji. Originally transformed into a devotional song or brahmo sangit from a small dedicatory verse addressed to the poet's notun-bouthan Kadambaridevi, the wife of his elder brother Jyotirindranath, it is now classified as a love song. Young Narendranath Dutta, a reputed singer who became Swami Vivekananda later in his life, once sang this song under the direction of the poet himself. The original with its swaralipi or notation is to be found at
