Je Raate Mor Duarguli Bhanglo Jhore


There was one night in my life. It was a shocking night, some revelation night. That night, I was unable to sleep. I can't really explain to anyone, how was the feelings! However, the song that gave me support that whole night was this one.

I never understood that this song has so much power within itself, it has so much to say.

I want to share the song with you all. This is the clippings of the movie "Meghe Dhaka Tara". Another version of the song is also shared. Listen to both, and enjoy the one you like more.

It is written by Rabindranath Tagore. The lyrics goes like this. I have mentioned the meaning of the lyrics in English for all.



Je raate mor duar guli bhanglo jhor-e,
Jani nai to tumi ele, amar ghor-e, 
Je raate mor duar guli bhanglo jhor-e...

The night the storm broke my doors,
I did not know you'd come in...

Sab je hoye gelo kaalo,
Nibhe gelo deep-er aalo,
aakash paane haath baralem kaharo tore,
Jani nai to tumi ele amar ghor-e,
Je raate mor...

Everything went black,
The lamp went out,
For whom did I reach out on high?
I did not know you'd come in...
The night...


Andhokar-e roinu pore swapono mani,
Jhor je tomar joyo-dhwoja, tai ki jani,
Sokal bela cheye dekhi,
Dariye aachho tumi eki,
Ghor bhora mor sunyota-r i buker opore,
Jani nai to tumi ele amar ghor-e,
Je raate mor...

In darkness I lay dreaming,
How could I know that the storm was the pennant of your triumph,
Only in the morning did I see,
There you were, standing,
There where emptiness filled my room, 
I did not know you'd come in...
The night...

The lines that " How would I know that the storm was the pennant of your triumph" ... It really brings tears to my eyes. Even now when I am writing this, and listening to the song, I can't really control myself.
