A tribute to Dida

Today is my grandmother-in-law (Dida’s ) Shraddh ceremony. Today as all the rituals and ceremonies take place, I want to pay my obeisance to her in my own way in the words of Tagore:

Aguner poroshmoni choao prane
E jibon punyo koro
E jibon punyo koro dahan dane

Amar ei deho khani tule dhoro
tomar oi debaloyer prodip koro
nishidin alok shikha joluk gane
Aguner poroshmoni choao prane
E jibon punyo koro

Adharer gaye gaye parosh tobo
sara raat photak tara nabo nabo
nayoner dhrishti hote ghuchbe kalo
jekhane porbe shethay dekhbe aalo
byatha mor uthbe jole urdhopane
Aguner poroshmoni choao prane
E jibon punyo koro

Ria and Jayonto

you can watch the video of the above song on You Tube sung very nicely by Padmaja.
