Ekla cholo re

Watched the movie Kahani today. It was definitely a lovely script and executed pretty well. but the most favorite thing for me was the Ever so inspiring poem from Rabindranath Tagore. ” Ekla Cholo Re ” and the icing on the top was the deep and powerful voice of Amitabh Bachchan singing it. Totally in love with it.

I’ve heard many different version of this – from different singers. Adding them here in the list of most liked to least.

1. Amitabh bachchan

2. Kishore Kumar

3. Lopamudra Mitra


4. Usha Utthup


Which one is your favorite?

a bonus i came across while surfing. a Tagore song. in Tagore Voice. interesting one indeed. only if i could understand sung bengali as good as i could read. :)

Update – one more version found.

Suchitra Mitra.


God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,
He called it … Father!

Day 7 – My dream Wedding

my dream wedding… well, i dreamt of different kind when i was a kid but the one i had was better than any dream/fantasy i had of my wedding. it was stressful in the right places and fun in rest. loved the whole jingbang when i look back at it. it’s more than 2 months now that i am married and i love every second of it.me

Day 3 – Perfect First Date

Perfect First date. Makes me think of this one incident and nothing ever would come closer to becoming the best date of my life other than that one.

It happened years back, and it was with someone who I am today happily married to. :) guess i have all the right reasons to be happy and married. :D

although there were long months of talk over the phone before we had this date so technically it would not be the first one. but it was the very first time i was going to meet him. let me tell you what was so perfect about the date – it was simple and honest. there were no over hyped gestures – flowers – gifts etc but he was thoughtful in little details as to how do i like my food and drinks, how i like to spend my time, what kind of music i like to listen to. we did not do extravagant stuff like dining out / partying / etc but we connected – we sat together in private but special dinner date and we talked. and we talked some more. I was direct and he was honest in responding and there was this strange spark in the air. We did not need fireworks to announce it, it was evident with ever so slight touch of fingers here and there. we bonded. we made love with words and thats how our journey began. That day onwards , I knew he was the one. I still know he is the one for me. Its already 3 years down that date and I am more in love today than I was yesterday.

frankly, I couldn’t have asked for anything more from a first date and it was oh-so-perfect. well at least – perfect for me.
