Jhoro, Jhoro, Jhoro, Jhoro (Drop, Sprinkle, Pour And Flow)





Rabindra-Sangeet (Tagore Song): Jhoro, Jhoro, Jhoro, Jhoro (Drop, Sprinkle, Pour And Flow)

Composed: Poush, 1329 (Dec.-Jan. 1923)

Catagory: Prokriti-Basanta (Nature-Spring)


Bengali Lyrics:


ঝরো-ঝরো ঝরো-ঝরো ঝরে রঙের ঝর্না।

     আ য়   আ য়   আ য়   আয় সে রসের সুধায় হৃদয় ভর্-না ॥

সেই   মুক্ত বন্যাধারায় ধারায়     চিত্ত মৃত্যু-আবেশ হারায়,

          ও সেই   রসের পরশ পেয়ে ধরা নিত্যনবীনবর্ণা ॥

তার   কলধ্বনি দখিন-হাওয়ায় ছড়ায় গগনময়,

          মর্মরিয়া আসে ছুটে নবীন কিশলয়।

বনের   বীণায় বীণায় ছন্দ জাগে   বসন্তপঞ্চমের রাগে–

ও সেই     সুরে সুরে সুর মিলিয়ে আনন্দগান ধর্-না ॥


The Song in English Script:


Jharo jharo jharo jharo jhare ranger jharna.

Aay aay aay aay shey rasher sudhaye hridoy bhar na.

Shei mukto bonnadharaye dharaye chitto mrittu aabesh haraye,

O shei rasher parosh peye dhara nittonabinbarna.

Taar kalodhwani dokhin haoaye chharaaye gagonomoy,

Marmoria aashe chhute nobin kishalaye.

Boner binaye binaye chhando jaage basantopanchomer raage 

O shei shurey shurey shur miliye aanandogaan dhar naa.


The Song in English Translation:


Drop, sprinkle, pour and flow the colors of the fountain.

Do rush and fill the heart with this hued nectar.

In the unbound flood-streams    the heart loses death-trance,

By that touch of the elixir this earth is hued and fresh forever.

Its murmur drifting in the southerly breeze spreads over the skies,

Rustling along, rush the sprouting new leaves.

The forest-lutes stir their rhythms in all their strings,

The Raaga* Basanta-Pancham plays in the heart of Spring—

Let your songs of joy in tune with this melody begin.


*Raaga in Indian classical music is each of the six basic musical modes.

Translated by Sumana Roy 


The Song is Here sung by Debabrata Biswas
