Shreya Ghosal "Ekla Cholo Re"

Shreya Ghosal never fails to melt your heart with her voice...one of my favorite songs of all time!




Translation into English

Here is the translation in prose of the Bengali original rendered by Rabindranath Tagore himself.[6]
If they answer not to thy call walk alone.
If they are afraid and cower mutely facing the wall,
O thou unlucky one,
open thy mind and speak out alone.
If they turn away, and desert you when crossing the wilderness,
O thou unlucky one,
trample the thorns under thy tread,
and along the blood-lined track travel alone.
If they do not hold up the light when the night is troubled with storm,
O thou unlucky one,
with the thunder flame of pain ignite thy own heart
and let it burn alone.
