"Dui hathe kaler mondira he sawdai baje"
Words, music & dance form by Rabindranath Tagore
"In both hands -
Time’s cymbals always sound on the right, on the left, in both hands,
Sleep leaves and dance rises daily in new clashes.
Flowers sound, thorns sound, with the turn of the tide from light to shade,
Within my heart, there beats sadness, happiness, fear.
In time with the rhythm, in the evening, in the morning, in the ocean of beauty, waves rise.
In the conflict of white and black, in that rhythm, various colours awake.
In that rhythm, tune your song - with tears and laughter do your vocal exercises,
Listen to the call of death, of life, with a dance gathering’s fanfare."
