One of my most favorite Bengali songs…

It describes the vagaries of life and the futility of one’s sense of ego.

Most of the song has references to Hindu mythological epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata. But the first few words are fairly generic…

“Chiradon kaharo
Soman nahi jaay
Aajkey je raajadhiraj
Kaal se bhiksha chaay”

Everyday is never going
To be the same for anybody
One who is the emperor today
Will someday be reduced to begging
