Day 19. A song that sends you in deep thought

There are a lot of songs for this prompt but the first one that comes to my mind is this masterpiece written by Bha Ra Tambe. It is the biggest truth in life and no matter what, one can’t change this. Life is a blessing to us and how we live it defines our existence on this planet. No-one is above nature and no amount of money or fame earned can help when the time has come! This song is a perfect melange of science and spiritualism for me personally and this makes me think deep every single time I listen to it!

जन पळभर म्हणतील ‘हाय हाय’ !
मी जाता राहिल कार्य काय ?

सूर्य तळपतील, चंद्र झळकतील,
तारे अपुला क्रम आचरतील,
असेच वारे पुढे वाहतील,
होईल काहि का अंतराय ?

मेघ वर्षतील, शेते पिकतील,
गर्वाने या नद्या वाहतील,
कुणा काळजी की न उमटतील,
पुन्हा तटावर हेच पाय ?

सखेसोयरे डोळे पुसतील,
पुन्हा आपुल्या कामि लागतील,
उठतिल, बसतील, हसुनि खिदळतील
मी जाता त्यांचे काय जाय ?

अशा जगास्तव काय कुढावे !
मोहि कुणाच्या का गुंतावे ?
हरिदूता का विन्मुख व्हावे ?
का जिरवु नये शांतीत काय ?

गीत – भा. रा. तांबे
संगीत – वसंत प्रभू
स्वर – लता मंगेशकर
