Rabindranath Tagore surely remains as the most cherished Bengali among all the Bengalis even almost 70 years after his death. Tagore was a poet,lyricist, composer, novelist, short-story writer, playwright & painter . All of them, par excellence. Tagore received a Nobel prize in literature for his book of poems , Gitanjali, in 1913.

Any Bengali ,worth his salt (pun not intended), would have to compulsorily go through Tagore's poems or songs as part of his upbringing in childhood. Tagore's songs , also called Rabindrasangeet, when sung with his original music never fail to strike a chord among predominantly Bengali listeners. After the expiry of copyright on Tagore's music from 1st of January 2002, one expected a flood of new compositions of his songs and poems from the present bunch of musicians & popular bands in Bengal. Sadly they were few in number , mediocre scores & not very popular, either.

Now, nearly 100 years after receiving the Nobel prize , a song called "Praan (Stream of life)" has propelled Tagore again to international popularity. Where the hell is Matt (2008), a video posted by Matt Harding on the net features this fantastic song in the background of a globetrotter Matt dancing crazily in 71 countries.

This video has been viewed 17 million times on the net as on date. Gary Schyman, the composer of this song & a Tagore fan, also received a Hollywood Music Award, in the 'Best Music Video' category.

An 17 year old Bangladeshi singer ( now settled in Minneapolis, USA ), Palbasha Siddique, has lent her angelic voice to the lyrics. Incidentally , Praan (meaning 'life') is from the original "Gitanjali" in Bengali and not from Tagore's Nobel prize winning book of the same name in English.

“One man, one dance, and the Web’s most watched video.” It’s about a four-and-a-half minute video called Dancing, created by Matt Harding, that’s become a YouTube sensation. The music is set to a poem by Rabindranath Tagore, sung in Bengali by Palbasha Siddique,17, a native of Bangladesh now living in Minneapolis. Here’s more on Palbasha, the singing sensation, from the Minnealopis Star Tribune:

When Palbasha Siddique starts her senior year at Minneapolis’ Southwest High School, she’ll have quite a story to tell about what she did on her summer vacation.

“I was waiting for something like this to happen for a long time,” said Siddique, 17, a Bangladesh native who lives in northeast Minneapolis and can now be heard singing around the globe.

Siddique owns the ethereal voice heard in a new YouTube-buoyed video clip that, as they say in these Internet-trendy times, has gone viral. It’s called “Dancing” (or: “Where the Hell Is Matt?”), and it’s nothing but footage of one guy randomly dancing in the streets with people all over the world.

'Praan' lyrics in Bengali:
Bhulbona ar shohojete
Shei praan e mon uthbe mete
Mrittu majhe dhaka ache
je ontohin praan
Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami(Repeat 3X)

Dao more shei kaan.
Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde
Chittobinar taare
Shopto-shindu dosh digonto
Nachao je jhonkare!
Bojre tomar baje bashi
She ki shohoj gaan
Shei shurete jagbo ami(Repeat 3X)

My attempted with a friend to translate it

I will not easily forget
The life that stirs in my soul
Hidden amidst Death
That infinite Life

I hear you in the thunder
A simple tune
A tune to which I will arise (3x)

And in that storm of happiness
As your music plays in your mind
The whole wide world
Dances to your rhythm

I hear you in the thunder
A simple tune
A tune to which I will arise (3x)


(lines below are not part of the song but are in the original poem)
Araam hote chinnow korey
Shei gobhirey lao go more
Ashaantir antorey jethai shaanti sumahan.
