Rabindra-Sangeet (Tagore Song): Bipulo Torongo Re (What Massive, Colossal Wave)

Composed: 1314 (1908)

Category: Puja (Worship – Devotional Song)

 

Bengali Lyrics:

 

          বিপুল তরঙ্গ রে, বিপুল তরঙ্গ রে ।

সব গগন উদ্‌বেলিয়া— মগন করি অতীত অনাগত

আলোকে-উজ্জ্বল জীবনে-চঞ্চল   একি আনন্দ-তরঙ্গ ॥

           তাই, দুলিছে দিনকর চন্দ্র তারা, 

           চমকি কম্পিছে চেতনাধারা,

আকুল চঞ্চল নাচে সংসার,   কুহরে হৃদয়বিহঙ্গ ॥

 

The Song in English Script:

 

        Bipulo torongo re, bipulo torongo re 

Shob gogon udbelia–                mogon kori oteet onagato

Aaloke ujyalo jeebone chonchol eki anondo torongo   

            Tai, dulichhe dinkara chandra tara,

             Chomoki kompichhe chetanadhara,

Aakul chonchol naache shongsharo,  kuhore hridoybihanga.

 

The Song in English Translation:

 

                       What massive, colossal waves!

The sky being consumed—    pasts, hereafters        drown;

Effulgent in light     stirring with life    what waves of Bliss and Delight!

                     Upon them rock the sun, moon and stars,

                      Consciousness-stream startles, quivers,

Dances this fervent, restive life           the warbler heart carols, gratified.

 

Translated by Sumana Roy
