Shaon Raate Jodi
Listen to and relish the instrumental music on flute. The tune flavours of the downpour, and missing the dear one at the solitary corner of the room.
This is a rainy season song written and composed by Kazi Nazrul Islam. During the season, a strong desire of being with the beloved arouses. If, by any means, s/he is absent, the mind becomes restless and longs for him/her. The song has a sombre and melancholic mood as the lover lives separately from his/her beloved. But the nature of heavy downpour is that it usually reminds of the beloved, so the lover sings the song.
The meanings of the song can be paraphrased this way:
If you miss me on a rainy night when the storm blows and you shed tears, forget my memories like a night dream and drop the garland, which you wove and placed at your apron, on the way. The eastern wind will blow in the deep, distant forest, and you will stare at it all alone sitting at the window. The lone peacock will cry in the bur-flower branches, and you will hear someone calling on the bank of the Jamuna. The flames of lightning will grove for you, O love. That time if your eyes become tearful, hide them with your hands, and forget my memories like a night dream.
This feeling and mood has been captured o flute. Feel the mood while you are listening to the tune on flute!
