Amitabh Bachchan plays a tribute to Rabindranath Tagore's epic poem "Ekla Cholo Re," written in 1905.
"Jodi Tor Daak Shune Keu Na Ashe, Tobe Ekla Cholo Re"
Amitabh Bachchan's voice fits the poem so much! Must say he has an amazing voice and he is a really good singer!
Lovely! Must say Bangla is a really sweet language! Amitabh's pronounciation is great!
I am Bengali by the way! And I have always admired this poem and the poet!
Translation of the poem -
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.
