Shawan gagane ghora ghanaghata. In the season of thunder, the clouds cry out. Lyrics, Kobi, Poet, Rabindranath Tagore, Vocalist, Srimati Lata Mangeshkar.

Shawan gagane ghora ghanaghata. In the season of thunder, the clouds cry out in force. Nishitha yamini re, being alone and helpless, Kunja pathe sakhi kayse jaoba. Abala kamani re where friends that will guide me through these troubled times. Unmad pabane yamuna tarjita. The crazy wind makes the river sway. Ghan Ghana garjita meha as if it was an accompaniment of the dark clouds. Damakatha bidyutha patha tharu lunthita, The lightning threatens the path of escape, making me sure of my defeat. Thara thara kampitha deha, and I shiver at this sight.  Ghana ghan rim jhim rim jhim rim jhim, the pitter patter of rainfall collecting around the dark cloud  Barakhata nirada punja will make for an eventful journey, darkness. Sal piyale Thala thamale, where you will drink only evil. Nibiro thimiro moyo punja. Thus, beloved, tread cautiously.  Kahare sajani e duryoge, Tell me companion, why has such misfortune befallen me?  Kunje niradaya kana, as if help is a step away, Dhaaruna bansi kaha bjayatha, thus why sing of the wonderful flute?  Sakaruna radha naam that praises the name of Radha, companion of Lord Krishna.  Mothi mahare besh bana dhe, Sithi laga de bhale Dress me in pearls and my forehead with paint. Purahi bilunthito Lolachi kura momo, help me with my locks that still reach the ground  Badhaho chompoko malae and tie them to the flower known as Champa.  Gohono noyonmae na jao bala  Gahe kisharak pasha. In this frosty night, my lady, do not venture out
says the night.  Garaje ghana ghan bahu dar pawab, you will be scared, kahe bhanu thobo daas, says Tagore, poet and your servant.

Gandhi and uncivil behavior, slavery? Abstract. The Value–Oriented Civil Rights Movement and Passive Resistance: An Expression of Civility in the Pursuit of Social Justice. Author, John Moland, Jr. 2002

civildisobedienceWe hold these truths to be self–evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just power from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. (The Declaration of Independence in Congress, July 4, 1776.)  A core set of sociological values considered by most Americans as essential to the American way of life are discussed within the context of denial and opportunity for a large minority. These core values guarantee equal opportunity and justice for all Americans as expressed in, and supported by, the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights. Yet, historically, Black Americans experienced systematic injustices. A discussion of the Civil Rights Movement focuses on the organized, disciplined, nonviolent action employed as the means of calling attention to the incivility perpetrated upon Blacks while arousing the consciousness of the Nation. The author examines the nonviolent, passive–resistance movement as an expression of civility in pursuit of justice as accorded by the Constitution and in the expressed value system of the American society.

Jal ras boondhana barse, In the midst of meetings, there are raindrops to be found.  Ra noom,  piya bina jiya ra tharsae , and one is lonesome for their beloved.  Yuun yuun avath ghorae badhariya, the rain clouds appear here and there, morae ankhiyan barsae, and tears well up in my eyes. Jal ras boondhana barsae, In the midst of our meeting, there were raindrops to be gathered.  Sa re ma pa ni dha ga ma re pa ni re re sa.

Dhil jalane ki baathe. You speak of the soul as if it were on fire. Vocalist, Farida Khanum.

Dhil jalane ki baathe karthe hoe, aashiyanae ke baath karthae hoe, speak of a beautiful home sarae dhuniya ke ranng o ghaam dhaeker, having given all the world’s splendor and sorrow muskareynae baathe karthe hoe, you speak now of those that brought laughter. Humko aapni khabar nahi, yaaro, friends, I have lost sight of myself. Thum zamanae ki baath karthe hoe, and you record these times, zikr mera sunna when you heard of devotion thu chir kae kahan that is continuous eis dhiwanae ke baath karthae hoe,  you speak only of youth zikr mera suna tho chir ke kaha, eis diwanae ki baath karthe ho, dhil behlaney ki baath karthae hoe, you try to make me forget, kiss zamanay ki baath karthae hoe, what else do you speak of ?aashyian… saarae duniya ke ruun jo ghum detho, always prepared for suffering, muskuranae ki baath karthe ho, and you speak of those times in which there was laughter.
