My mom wanted me to record this song for her on the occasion of Tagore’s 160th birth anniversary on 9th May 2021. This song was composed by Tagore in 1889. Music arrangement and keyboards by Venky.
In these torrential rains I can talk to you In this dense darkness devoid of light, as the clouds rumble I can open my heart to you. No one will hear these words It is desolate all around Just the two of us facing each other, burdened with intense sorrow The sky pouring down in incessant torrents There is no one else in the world. The society and the world are false The clamour of life is meaningless My eyes drink the nectar from your eyes, the two hearts feel each other All else is wiped out in the dark. If it eases my burden, whom will it hurt? During the rains in a quiet corner If I whisper a few words to you Who would care? The winds are restless today Flashes of lightning criss cross the sky What I wanted to tell you all my life, yet couldn't Can be said today, in this downpour.
