Aaa aalo chaya dhola In the midst of the play of light and shadow, uthola phagunae bono bina baajae rae, my heart skips as if a fluted instrument, potho chari bhori cholaejae kakoli, the road ahead is full of song birds.  Jaagae modhu laagae, that awaken the nectar within hearts. Mridhu phulobashae, in the presence of flowers shomironi nishashae, one’s breath rests,  ojana aadhesho phiraethae shae aaji, some unknown information has weighed everyone down,  aaji piyamaadhae , that beckons a beloved land dholae lotha beni, where the lotus and its leaves sway gently, shaajae bono pori, to dress the creatures of the forest, baadhaephulorakhi, and one’ heart becomes bound in its glory bujhi moroae shori , In order that we move forward chaari diki tharo, onto heaven’s road daakae onibaro, which calls everyone home. Aey shubhono dholae Upon  partaking of this holy assembly aajae ki  kamonae rohi onothorae, you will see how well a heart’s design truly is.  Aalo chaya dhola, within the game of light and shadow, gleams Brindhavan, the abode of God.

Aalo Chaya Dola. The mixing of light and shadow. Vocalist Sachin Dev Burman.

aalo chaya dola, utola phagune, bono bina baajere potho chari hoyee choloe je kakoli jagi modhu laagi alo dola.. mridu phulo baashe somiro nishashae , ojaana abesho phire te aashe aaji ki amare, aalo chaya…dole lota beni, shaaje bono pori baandhe phulo raakhi bujhi more shori, chaari diki taro daake onibaro esho shubho dole aaj ki kamoni rohi onotari aalo chaya dola utola phaguna bono bina baaje. The mixing of light and shadows revealed a turbulent spring when within me a song emerged. I have become lost in the road with only the spring to guide me. Awakened I found myself amongst nectar. In the company of flowers, breathless night speaks a nuanced message beckoning return. Does it matter if it is today? Look at the combination of leaves and flowers with which the nymphs of the forest adorn themselves. They tie the bond of flowers and understanding I remove myself from them. Everywhere there is a cry for HIM,  Beloved come make spring auspicious.  Bereft, within me a song emerged.jerusalem1
