My recipes, translation of some songs, some thoughts and bits of observations..

Ejaak botahey koley aahi,
Moi nobhoba kothabor…

Eti phuley kandi kandi,
Koley hi monor,
Kothabor…

Morom ki,
Dorey…

Ejaak dhumuha hoi,
Bisaari phurisey muk…

Ejaak botahey koley aahi,
Moi nobhoba kothabor…

Eti phuley kandi kati,
Koley hi monor kothabor…

Haatot tomaar,
Dhori haat…

Paar hoi oha xei baat…

Eri oha xei khuj,
Ajiu tu ase taat…

Ejaak omaal xondhiya
Asiley jot,
Tumaak diya eti tej rongi phool…

Tumi kiyo dila ubhotai,
Xei tejal paahibor?…

Tomar bukur umot,
Asil ji paal xomoy…

Tothapiu lagey mor,
Tumi nohoi bohu dur…

Tuli loba duhaatot,
Morohibo dhora aaxabor…

Tomar kumol poroxot naasibo mor,
Herai jowa eti xaaturongi xuur…

Ejaak botahey koley aahi,
Tumi tu xodaai mor…

Bukur kunotey aase,
Xei jonaaki raatibor…

It’s as if your melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…

I know not why,
This darkness descends today
(And) Why dreams get shattered…

Your hopes alone,
Are all that I carry in my eyes
Don’t know what my heart searches for…

It’s as if your melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…

In my eyes today,
It’s all just this eagerness for you,
The truths and lies,
Of hopes that were fulfilled,
Some perhaps not…

In my eyes today,
It’s all just this eagerness for you,
The truths and lies,
Of hopes that were fulfilled,
Some perhaps not…

Will I find you?
Somewhere amidst this moonlight…
Will I find you?
Right in the middle of my heart…
Will I find you?
When (in the evening) the earthen lamps are set alight…
Oh… this sweet dew covered evening…

It’s as if your melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…

Would you inch closer to me?
Just like these dew drops,
That descend in the evening…

Why is it that every time dusk falls,
My heart brightens up like the moonlight,
And keeps waiting again and again!

It gets set aflame,
Everytime it illuminates you!
Gets carried away by all the emotions that desire you (just you)
Those black clouds,
Why do they just float away
After pouring down the rain?…
Oh… this sweet dew covered evening…

It’s as if your sweet melody
Paints colours of this dew today..

Many are the emotions (I feel)
Some I understand, some I don’t
They are all hazy,
Just like this dew…

Even time stopped and wondered..
(When) you turned around,
And looked at me with those beautiful black eyes..
(When) you turned around,
And looked at me with those beautiful black eyes..

Even time comes to a standstill and searches..
(With) that shy smile,
Those quivering lips..
(With) that shy smile,
Those quivering lips..

In my dreams,
I see your graceful dance..
(And) I know,
You’re made for me in all my births..

Your thoughts breathe life,
To the moon that shines in my night sky
You’re the one,
Who is the very reflection of my heart..

It’s in you that I find the warm embrace,
Of the familiar season of spring..

Even time stopped and wondered..
(When) you turned around,
And looked at me with those beautiful black eyes..
(When) you turned around,
And looked at me with those beautiful black eyes..

Even time comes to a standstill and searches..
(With) that shy smile,
Those quivering lips..
(With) that shy smile,
Those quivering lips..

My heart’s overflowing,
With the bright colours of love..
It’s spreading through my blood,
And giving life to me..

A tired river that runs through my heart,
And I can’t seem to see where the other bank is..
But after meandering for ages now,
There is a storm and turmoil in the river that runs through my heart…

It’s the hope of making you mine..
It’s the hope of becoming yours, forever..

Even time stopped and wondered..
(When) you turned around,
And looked at me with those beautiful black eyes..
(When) you turned around,
And looked at me with those beautiful black eyes..

Even time comes to a standstill and searches..
(With) that shy smile,
Those quivering lips..
(With) that shy smile,
Those quivering lips..

Imagine a relationship between two people as solutions to two equations – the equations being the people. And the “variables” that make up the equations – let’s consider them to be the different qualities/attributes/thoughts that make up the people involved..

As an example say there are two “people” namely

2y + 3z + x = 9 and
7y – 2z – x = 2

Let y, z and x be three of the qualities that make up these two “people”

Finding the values/solution to the equations presents you with a set of constants that lend perfect harmony to the equations 🙂

The solution – these constants are the points upon which both the equations [or individuals] agree no matter what.

They are the points where the equations intersect and become one and the same… This is the apex of harmony – in thoughts and in values.

So far so good.

But the characteristics of human beings offer an almost infinite number of variables to their being.

Thus while some of these variables find a matching constancy between the two individuals, some might not.

As time goes on, more and more variables might begin to show up.

Or some might disappear!

But no matter, no matter… No problems as long as the individuals have what is called MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING between themselves.

Mutual understanding is knowing what value a variable would have even before the complete solution is found.

It provides you with initial values to some of the variables.

For example if you knew the value of ‘x’ to be 1 in the above two equations, you can solve them to find the values of ‘y’ and ‘z’ easily to satisfy the equations! This is so nice 🙂

So that the remaining variables can be worked out using these values (this mutual understanding) as a BASE – And herein lies the sheer beauty of it in all its glory!

Unfortunately however, if you imagine people as equations there is one MAJOR glitch.

Human beings have the capacity of being able to influence one another. It’s like a quirk almost. And a rather irritating one at that!

So if you add equations to a defined problem-space, they will influence one another.

If there are ‘n’ equations at a given instant in the problem space then, the two equations in question can be influenced by the remaining (n-2) equations!

This causes new variables to abruptly pop-up between the two equtions or may even change the initial solution values [mutual understanding – the value of the variable ‘x’].

And this is really unfortunate… 😦

All of a sudden you find the beautiful partial solution unable to satisfy the two equations… That too for no fault of their’s… 😦

Sometimes this can skew the two equations themselves so badly that there won’t be a solution after all..

And it’s a given that any ambiguities/assumptions are bound to create further problems (like assuming x = 5 after being influenced by other equation(s)). NEVER ever assume things in relationships.

The bottomline – never let other people change the understanding you have with someone. Do this much and you shall have a beautiful and harmonious relation your whole life.. Simple isn’t it? 🙂
