By Rabindranath Tagore

Rabindranath Tagore disait souvent que ses chansons survivraient au Bengale longtemps après que son nom et ses écrits seraient oubliés. Il est difficile de croire que l'œuvre littéraire du grand poète bengali pourrait l'être un jour. motor vehicle si ses livres sont considérés comme des " classiques ", c'est-à-dire comme appartenant au passé, ses mélodies, chantées par tous dans toutes les régions du Bengale, restent d'une actualité toujours présente. Au cours du XIXe siècle, l. a. musique classique indienne avait développé au Bengale des strategies extrêmement raffinées qui nécessitaient des exécutants très spécialisés et des audiences d'amateurs éclairés. Tagore inventa un nouveau langage musical qui, tout en conservant les features essentiels de los angeles musique savante de l'Inde, sut mettre son infrequent pouvoir d'expression à los angeles portée de tous. Tagore était toujours profondément ému par le spectacle de l. a. vie ; ses chansons, par leurs mélodies simples et vigoureuses, ont donné une voix, une expression aux sentiments de thousands de femmes et d'hommes de sa patrie. On entend encore ces chants partout : dans les riches maisons des villes, dans les rizières isolées, sur les rivières ou dans les cabanes de pêcheurs, dans les ruelles des villages comme dans les amphithéâtres des universités. Leur bright message ne connaît pas les différences de faith, de race, de caste ou d'âge. En quelques années, l. a. musique de Tagore a conquis tout le Bengale et rythme de ses chants los angeles vie quotidienne. Aujourd'hui, l'Inde hindoue et le Bangla Desh musulman ont chacun choisi une mélodie Tagore comme hymne nationwide.
