Rabindra-Sangeet (Tagore Song): Aguner Paroshmoni (Fire Divine)

Composed: 11th Bhadra, 1321 (28thAugust, 1914)

Category: Puja (Worship)

 

Bengali Lyrics: 

 

আগুনের         পরশমণি   ছোঁয়াও প্রাণে।

এ জীবন          পুণ্য করো   দহন-দানে ॥

আমার এই      দেহখানি   তুলে ধরো,

তোমার ওই     দেবালয়ের   প্রদীপ করো–

নিশিদিন          আলোক-শিখা   জ্বলুক গানে ॥

আঁধারের         গায়ে গায়ে   পরশ তব

সারা রাত        ফোটাক তারা   নব নব।

নয়নের           দৃষ্টি হতে   ঘুচবে কালো,

যেখানে           পড়বে সেথায়   দেখবে আলো–

ব্যথা মোর        উঠবে জ্বলে   ঊর্ধ্ব-পানে ॥       

 

The Song in English Script:

 

Aaguner paroshmoni chnoao praane

E jibon punyo karo dahon daane.

Aamar ei dehokhani tule dhoro,

Tomar ei debaloyer prodip koro-

Nishidin aalok shikha joluk gaane.

Aandharer gaaye gaaye porosh oabo

Saara raat photak tara nobo nobo.

Nayoner drishti hote ghuchbe kaalo,

Jekhane porbe sethaay dekhbe aalo-

Byatha more utthbe jole urdho-paane.

 

The Song in English Translation:

 

Touch my soul with Thy fire divine

Bless this life by putting it through blaze

Elevate this mortal frame of mine

To make it Thy lamp in Thy shrine

Let the flame of my song glow by night and day

Let Thy blessing hands on the skin of darkness

Ceaselessly blossom stars nouveau all night

All murk will fade out from eyesight

Wherever it casts glance will there be light

My ache will glow to be sublime

 

Translated by Sumana Roy

 

The Song is Here sung by Rezwana Choudhury Bannya and her troupe
