Notes: This song was first published in spring, 1939.

Shailaja-ranjan Majumdar, in his book 'Jaatrapother Aanondogaan has written –

...Clouds had gathered all over the sky, wind seemed to have picked up. I had just walked out for my home from Gurudev's appartment. I kept my voice a bit high so that Gurudev can hear me – 'How nice the cloud is! And the wind is spirited – feels like it would puff up into the horizon! –

He did listen to it. He too raised his voice – 'Go, aren't you going home! I am not listening to you.'

I re-entered the room and said – 'It wasn't for you.'

He replied – 'I can well understand; now go away. I cannot write any more songs.'

I touched his feet – 'Please do not refrain yourself if songs come to you.' And I left him.

He called me in the afternoon. He has written –

'Mon mor megher songi

Ure chole dik-diganter paane ...'

I quietly picked the song for notation. ...

Mon mor megher songi,
Ure chale digdigantero paane
Nihsimo shunye shraabonobarshanosongite
Rimijhim rimijhim rimijhim.
Mono mor hangsobalakar paakhay jaay ure
Kochito kochito chokito torito-aaloke.
Jhanjhanomonjiro baajay jhanjha rudro aanonde.
Kalo-kalo kalomondre nirjhorini
Dsak dey prolay-aahwaane.
Baayu bahe purbosomudro hote
Uchchhalo chhalo-chhalo totinitaronge.
Mono mor dhaay taari matto probahe
Taal-tamalo-aronye
Khubdho shaakhar aandolane.
