I am fine and hope so thy, write me at the address in sky...

For last few days, my mind has been playing a single number again and again. I heard the song just a few days back, when just to check what’s going on in the costliest Puja ever of Navi Mumbai (and perhaps World!), we found Somlata performing live. Somlata is a famous Bengali female singer and has really got a superb voice (and long beautiful hair :)) Amongst many a songs, she sung a beautiful piece by Late Rudra Mohammad Shahidullah, “Amar Bhitor Bahire Ontore Ontore”. Kaustav, my colleague, told me about the song that it’s not that popular when written, but rose to the stairs of popularity as ‘Youth’s anthem’, especially in Jadhavpur boys, after being reincarnated by another legendary Bengali singer/writer/activist Kabir Suman. Following is the transliteration of the song, from Wikipedia:
Aamar Bhitor Bahire Ontore Ontore
Achho Tumi Hridoy Jure
Dheke Rakhe Jemon Kusum
Paprir Aborone Phosoler Ghum
Temni Tomar Nibir Chola
Moromer Mul Poth Dhore
Pushe Rakhe Jemon Jhinuk
Kholosher Aborone Muktor Sukh
Temni Tomar Gobhir Choaa
Bhitorer Nil Bondore
Bhalo Achhi, Bhalo Theko
Akasher Thikanay Chithi Likho
Dio Tomar Mala Khani
Baul Er Ei Mon Ta Re.

I shot Somlata singing a para, that could listened to here….



I have requested a fellow blogger to permit me to post his work of translation of the song, and am also trying to translate it into Hindi. Trying my best to post it soon.

My favorite line is... “Bhalo Achhi, Bhalo Theko, Akasher Thikanay Chithi Likho” that means “I am fine and hope so thy, write me at the address in sky”.

If you want to download the song (classical version) you may try here, if want Somlata’s rock version (a part only though), try here.

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

AshtaVinayaka Yatra with Bisons

(This post has already appeared on Bisons Ride Hard website, to check out click here) Ever since I read Vinni’s post on last year’s Ride of Faith, I have been waiting for this year’s ride. The day I came to know about the Bison’s schedule, I started preparing, until I realized I don’t have leaves. Few days left to the ride, multi-reminders received and I was like, will I be able to make it? Something happened, meetings deferred, jobs got completed and I was able to ask my boss for leaves; and, who can deny you leaves that too for a Ride of Faith, Ride to AshtaVinayaka! I felt blessed that day, and now after the hard ride we had, I know I’m blessed! We are a nation of faith, which plays an immensely large role in our lives, being homely, officially or on the tar. Though Bisons have started riding hard the day they first met at BKC on a fine Sunday evening of July 23, 2011 at BKC; official announcement was made on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chautrthi, Shukla Paksha, Bhadra maas, i.e. Se…
