Alas No one Remembers You Here O Beloved! (Tomar Kotha Hetha Kehoto Bolena) ~ A Translation of Tagore Song


তোমার কথা হেথা কেহ তো বলে না,
করে শুধু মিছে কোলাহল।
সুধাসাগরের তীরেতে বসিয়া
পান করে শুধু হলাহল ॥

আপনি কেটেছে আপনার মূল--
না জানে সাঁতার, নাহি পায় কূল,
স্রোতে যায় ভেসে, ডোবে বুঝি শেষে,
করে দিবানিশি টলোমল ॥

আমি কোথা যাব, কাহারে শুধাব,
নিয়ে যায় সবে টানিয়া।
একেলা আমারে ফেলে যাবে শেষে
অকূল পাথারে আনিয়া।


সুহৃদের তরে চাই চারি ধারে,
আঁখি করিতেছে ছলোছল,
আপনার ভারে মরি যে আপনি
কাঁপিছে হৃদয় হীনবল ॥


তোমার কথা হেথা কেহ তো বলে না,
করে শুধু মিছে কোলাহল।
সুধাসাগরের তীরেতে বসিয়া
পান করে শুধু হলাহল ॥



Alas! No one remembers You here O Beloved!
sitting on the shore of this blissful ocean
they only choose to listen
to the noise of illusion

Alone at this ocean
I know neither how to swim, nor where is shore,
floating aimlessly day and night,
I am almost drowning

To whom can I go? Whom can I ask?
All will abandon me, all begone
leaving me at the end
at this clueless ocean of illusion

Looking for true guide and friend of heart,
I am now weeping
dying from carrying my own baggage,
this weak heart of mine is quivering


Alas! No one Remembers You here O Beloved!
sitting on the shore of this blissful ocean
they only choose to create and listen
to the noise of illusion


~ Tomar Kotha Hetha Keho to Bolena (None Speak About You Here), original by Rabindranath Tagore, English Translation (Noise of Illusion) by Sadiq M. Alam  ~



Every distraction is a veil and every veil is responsible for us being cut off from the Real. In the process of veiling, we first get cut off from our own real self, our heart and soul gets veiled and the joy within dies slowly as we become more and more distracted. Being joyless from within we look for cheap entertainment, intoxication, ten thousand more distractions outside. It goes on and on and feed back into the system. More distractions make us more joyless within, creates more void inside and mindlessly we look to fill that void with more distractions. Its a vicious cycle.

Then eventually we lose the connection with our real self and with the reality. But the biggest price we pay is that we forget the Beloved. Aqeemus Salat (establish prayer) is a call and reminder to re-establish that connection (of heart with the Beloved), that is an antidote against this perpetual culture of distraction.

The reality is such a mysterious mirror that it reflects us back everything so very nakedly. If we forget the Real, we are made to forget our own soul; if we forget the Source Light (Nur), we are made to forget our own light within.


Wala takoonoo kallatheena nasoo Allaha fa ansahum anfusahum...

And be not like those who forgot the Divine, so the Reality made them forget their own souls.

~ The Qur'an 59:19


Wa qeela alyawma nansakum kama naseetum liqaa yawmikum hatha..

And it will be said, "Today the Divine Reality will forget you as you chose to forget the meeting of this appointed Day.."

~ The Qur'an 45:34

On the other side of this reality, if we Remember Him, the Divine remembers us. Is there any news more joyful than that! - that the Beloved remembers you when you remember Him? That is the greatest gospel (announcement of good news). The greatest law / rule / mystery / reality of love.

Fazkuroonee azkurkum

So remember Me; I will remember you.

~ The Qur'an 2:252
