Ektuku choa lagae, When Your Touch Is Felt. Kobi, (poet) Rabindranath Tagore. Vocalist, Jayati Chakravorty.

Ektuku Choa Lage, Whenever I feel your touch, Ek Tuku kotha shuni, I yearn to learn more from You. Thai dhiye monae monae, This is how you reach hearts, rochi momo falguni [x2] as if the purpose of seasons were fulfillment of my longings. Kichu polasher nesha, kichu ba chapay mesha, Drunk as I am with Polash and the Chapa flowers, Thai dhiye shurae shurae, I make a song of them, ronge roshae jaal buni and weave beautiful dreams.  Je tuku kachae-thae ashae, khoniker fakae fakae, Whatever small gift You provide in the face of fate,  Chokito moner kone the surprised mind, shoponer chobi anke makes a picture of it. Jetuku jay re dure, What flees to the other side, bhabna kapay shure, makes memories shiver, Thai niye jay baela and the day takes them, nupurero thaal guni by singing the praises of anklet- bells. Thai niye jaay baela, nupurero thaal guni, Rochi momo falguni, Ek tuku Choya Laage, Ektuku kotha shuni. Whenever I feel your touch, I yearn to learn more from You.

Dhē thōrā āmāẏ nūthono korē dhē nūthono ābhoroṇē..Hēmonthēro obhishompāthē riktho kiñchono kānonobhūmi,Boshonthē hōk dain’yabimōchono nobo lāboṇyodhonē. Śhūn’yo śhokhā lojjā bhulē jāk pollobo-ābhoroṇē..Bājuk prēmer māẏāmonthrē Pulokitho prāṇēro bīṇājonthrē Chiroshundorē obhibondona. Ānondhochoñcholo nr̥thyo oṅgē oṅgē bohē jak hillōlē hillōlē, Joubono pākh shom’man bañchithoshom’milonē. Dhe thora amay nuthono kore dhe nuthono abhorone.

Deliver me today in your might.  Autumn insulted is envious of spring whose glory undiminished covers the earth. Listen my friend forget your shame. Fill life with purpose. Hear the songs that re-create love’s belief.  They fill the soul that is always beautiful, holy which the dancing waves bathe. The youth gathers bounty in front of the world. Deliver me today in your might.
