Radha’s separation

It is believed that Radha, the consort of Krishna, truely fell in love with him, after Krishna left Vrindavan and settled in Dwarka. Here is a song, written by Radharaman Dutta of Sylhet, that depicts her emotions:

Bhromor Koio Giya

Bhromor koio giya
Sri Krishno biccheder onole…
Ongo jay joliya re
bhromor koiyo giya 

O Honey bee, go and tell
Being separated from Sri Krishna,
my body burns in the fire of severence
O Honey bee, go and tell

O Bhromor re …

Koiyo koio koyo-re bhromor
Krishno re bujhaiya (2)
Mui Radha moira jaimu re..
Krishna hara hoiya re
Bhromor koio giya

O Honey bee go and explain to Him
I, Radha, will wither away and die
If I cannot be united to Krishna.
O Honey bee, go and tell

Bhromor koiyo.. giya…
Sri Krishno biccheder onole…
Ongo jay joliya re
bhromor koiyo giya 

O Honey bee, go and tell
Being separated from Sri Krishna,
my body burns in the fire of severence
O Honey bee, go and tell

O Bhromor re …

Agey jodi jantam re bhromor
Jaiba re chariya
Mathar kishor du bhag kore
Rakhitam bandhiya re
Bhromor koiyo giya

If I knew ahead of time
that He would leave me
Parting my long hair in two strands
I would have kept him tied.

Bhromor Koio Giya
Sri krishno biccheder onole..
Ongo jay joliya re
Bhromor koiyo.. giya…

O Bhromor re …

Bhaibe Radharaman bole
Shuno re kaliya
Nibha chilo moner agun re..
Ke dilo jalaiya re
Bhromor koiyo giya

Radharaman speaks after deliberation
Listen o Kalia, the fire in my mind had been smouldering..
Who inflamed it again ?
O Honey bee, go and tell

Bromor koiyo.. giya…
Sri Krishno biccheder onole.ee…
Ongo jay joliya re
bhromor koiyo giya 

O Honey bee, go and tell
Being separated from Sri Krishna,
my body burns in the fire of severence
O Honey bee, go and tell

Shadows of the wind

Sneaky little footsteps
Rippling pond surface
in the evening light

Silent absorbed artistry
Creating wavy patterns
on the desert sands

Soft teasing play
Fluttering chiffon scarf
off a damsel’s neck

Sincere loving caress
Wiping tearful eyelashes
Above the ruddy cheeks

Shadows left behind
Touching little gestures
Of the whimsical wind

When lovers finally meet

AaaaaAaAaaaaA aAA aaAA aaa re
Aaoge jab tum o saajana
Aaoge jab tum o saajana
Angana phool khilenge

When you will finally come
My front yard will have flowers in full bloom

Barsega saawan
Barsega saawan
jhoom jhoom ke
Do dil aise milenge

It will rain,
It will rain heavily
When two loving hearts will meet this way.

Aaoge jab tum o saajana
Angana phool khilenge

When you will finally come
My front yard will have flowers in full bloom

Naina tere kajraare hai
Naino pe hum dil haare hai
Anjaane hi tere naino ne
Waade kiye kai saare hai

Your eyes are dark and lovely
I lost my heart in the depth of your eyes.
Unknowingly your eyes
Promised me so many things

Saanson ki lay
Madham chalein
Tose kahe barasega saawan
Barasega saawan
Jhoom jhoomke
Do dil aise milenge

The rhythm of  breath
Is speeding up
It’s telling you
That it will rain
It will rain heavily
When two loving hearts will meet this way

Aaoge jab tum ho saajana
Angana phool khilenge

When you will finally come
My front yard will have flowers in full bloom

Ga pa pa sa sa re ga ga
Chanda ko taaku raaton mein
Hai zindagi tere haanthon mein
Palkon pe jhilmil taarein hain
Aana bhari barsaaton mein

At night, I stare at the beautiful moon
I know that the happiness of my life is in your hands
Your eyelids have sparkling stars on them
You will come in the midst of heavy rainfall.

Sapnon ka jahaan
Hoga khila khila
Barasega saawan
Barasega saawan
Jhoom jhoom ke
Do dil aise milenge

The world of dreams
Will be in full bloom
It will rain
It will rain heavily
When two loving hearts will meet this way.

Angana phool khilenge
Angana phool khilenge

My front yard will have flowers in full bloom
My front yard will have flowers in full bloom
