Parjaay: Jatiya Sangeet (1)

Raag: Bhairavi

Written on: 1878

Published in: Jatiya Sangeet

Swarabitan: Notation not available

Notes: A durbar had followed after the announcement by lord Litton declaring Queen Victoria as the Empress of India. Rabindranath had written a poem and composed a song commemorating this event. A report by Akshay Chandra Sarkar published on 4th March 1877 in his weekly reads -

... Rabindranath had written a poem and composed a song about Delhi durbar. We sat on the grass under a huge tree and listened to them. He is quite a boy not exceeding sixteen or seventeen. Yet his poeticism had been amazing, recitation in his mellow voice was in fact mesmerising. ...

The poem could easily be identified as Delhi Durbar, although, identification of the song remains dubious. Nabin Chandra Sen has mentioned about the song in his autobiography, although, he did not remark about the theme of the song. Nabakanta Chattopadhyay in his book Bharatiya Sangeet Muktabali published in 1884 had included this song as a poem written by Rabindranath Tagore.

Transliteration in English

Bharat re, tor kolonkito poromnurashi
Joto din sindhu na phelibe grasshi toto din tui kaand re |
Ei himgiri sparshiya aakash prachin hindur kirti-itihaas 
Jato din tor shiyore daaraye ashrujole tor bokkho bashaibe
Toto din tui kaand re ||

Je din tomar giyeche choliya se din to aar ashibe na |
Je robi pashchime porechhe dhaliya se aar purobe utibe na |
Emni sokol neech hinpraan  janmeche tor kalanki santan
Ekti bindu ashru o keho tomar tore daye na dhali |
Je din tomar tore shonito dhalite se din jokhon giyeche choli
Tokhon, bahrat kaand re ||

Tobe kon bidhi eto alankare  rekhhechho sajaye bharatkay |
Bharoter bone pakhi gaaye gaan, swarnamegh-makha bharatbiman -
Hethakar lata phoole phoole bhora, swarnasasyamoyi hethakar dhora -
Profullo totoni bohiye jaaye |
Keno lajjaheena aalankar pari rogshuskhomukhe haanshiraashi bhori
Ruper garob korish hay |
Je din giyeche se to phirbe na,
Tobe, re bahrat, kaand re ||

Bharat, tor e kalanka dekhiya sharame molin mukh lukaiya
Amra je kobi bijone kaandibe, bijone bishaade beena jhaankaribo,
Tateo jokhon swadinata nai 
Tokhon, bharat, kaand re ||
