Maajhi Re (The Bong Connection)

Lyrics & Chords

My rendition of a very b’ful song from the movie ‘The Bong Connection’, composed by Anjan Dutta and sung by Shaan. Though the song is Primarily in Bengali, there are a few lines in Hindi in the Song – which capture the entire essence of the song.

Talks about past memories – childhood days. In the refrain of ‘Maajhi Re’, the singer asks the ‘Maajhi’ (Fisherman) whether he has seen a

small boat made of paper floating in the river – something the singer had made when he was a kid.

Lyrics
-——

::: Bengali :::
amar prothom dekha brishti-r jol-e
(In the rains that I first saw in my life)

bhasiyechhi bhela khelar chhol-e
(I set afloat a paper boat in playful mood)

sei jol gechhe mishe, kon nodi-te
(Don’t know in which river that water flowed into)

gechhe hariye kon sagar-e
(Don’t know in which sea it has got lost in)

Chorus: ::: Bengali :::
majhi re, o majhi re, dekhechho ki tumi tare? – 2
(Oh Fisherman…. Have you seen it?)

nouko amar, chhele belar, kagoj-er….
(The paper boat of my childood days….)

::: Bengali :::
amar prothom paoya aankar khata,
(My first drawing book that I had got as a kid)

amar prothom lekha kobita,
(The first poem that I had written)

sei chhelbelar, sopno hajar,
(All those thousands of memories that I had in my childhood days)

gechhe hariye kon sagar-e
(Don’t know in which sea they have got lost in)

Chorus: ::: Bengali :::
majhi re, o majhi re, dekhechho ki tumi tare? – 2
(Oh Fisherman…. Have you seen it?)

nouko amar, chhele belar, kagoj-er….
(The paper boat of my childood days….)

::: Hindi :::
neeli ambar si naiyyan meri,
lehorn ki dhunn mein beh chali,
gehri sagar mein tanha kahin,
geeton ko tumhare khojti…

::: Bengali :::
ekta jholse jaoa bikel bela-e,
(On a sun-burnt evening)

ekta laalche sagar-er jole,
(In the red waters of the Sea)

jaye bhese jaye sopno bojha-i,
(There it goes filled with all my dreams)

nouko amar, kagoj-er
(My paper boat)

::: Hindi :::
majhi re, o majhi re, dekha hai kya tumne usse,
majhi re, o majhi re, dekha hai kya tumne usse,
kagaz ki naav, mein hain bhare, sapne mere…. o majhi re……

Bodhi – nice soothing song and nicely sung. The composition had a lot of S-E-L’s Mithwa touch, i thought. Noticed a few flats…but still a nice rendition. The beauty of the language sure adds to the charm of the rendition and was so pleasing to the ears.Though i dont know the language, i liked the bangla bits than the hindi portion. Good job, Bodhi.

Hi Bodhi!!!
Khub bhalo geyechho…… Very very nice singing in this one…. Felt the vibrato can be a lil more smooth & floating…. Very nice harmony…. Other points have already been pointed out….

Bodhi – Very nice song and you did great justice for the most part. Firsly thanks for the translation. My bengali is not as good as it should be :-( so your translation helped at a few places. Coming to your attempt, I thought you started a tad late but eventually you caught up and then held the song very well. Nice expressions through out!! Very good! 4.999/5
