Akashpradip

Across the vast sea of darkness
The lonely girl floats a boat of light
And keeps on looking at the sky
She knows her mother has gone to heaven
She will come back home
On the ferryboat of that light
The world is so vast
With so many people, so many paths
Countries and mountains are many
And all of them are unknown
In its midst the corner of that small room
Where she lives with her brother all alone
Can it be seen from the heaven?
Does their mother search for them
And loses her way among the stars?
So her daughter keeps this light
For her mother as a beacon
So she can come to the motherless bed
When they are in their sleep
To kiss them every night.
Translation of the poem Akashpradip from the collection Chharar chhabi by Rabindranath Tagore. The original poem in Bengali script may be viewed at
