Diwali

Bookmark and Share
  The autumn has covered with her veil
All the lamps of the sky of this winter night
She has sent her call to every home,
'Light up all your lamps, your Diwali lamps
And dress the earth with light.'
There are no flowers in the garden
The singing birds do not sing
Along the banks of the river
The reeds have shed their flowers
Sweep away all shadows and sadness
Light up your lamps, your Diwali lamps
And sing of the victory of light.
The gods are looking on
Wake up O ye children of the world
Wake up the night with your light
When the day is done and darkness comes
Light up your lamps
To win over the darkness with your light.


Translation of the famous Deepavali song -
Himer rater oi gaganer deepgulire
Hemantika korlo gopan anchal ghire 

- by Rabindranath Tagore. Best recording of this song is by Debabrata Biswas.
The original with its swaralipi or notation is at http://www.rabindra-rachanabali.nltr.org/node/5353
