so that it gives me the feel When you are reading it should not feel like a translation it should feel like a poem with poetry imbibed in it with the emotion the nuances of a Bengali village a Bengali home All that should be there What he manages to put forth beautifully in just two words I have tried to bring out that emotion But when he takes the image out from the poem in translation I was like ‘what are you doing to the poem this is not what you’ve said’ So when you read the poems you can see I am complaining to him about his own poems Touching the works of Tagore is not easy says author poet and film-maker Gulzar (Express Photo by Tashi Tobgyal) Q Tagore is such a great poet did you have any inhibitions while working on his poems How was your experience while translating his works Not inhibitions fears Tagore is a great poet Touching the works of Tagore is not easy For instance one hesitates even before praising Ghalib You have to know Ghalib his life the era he lived in his contemporaries and everything that happened in his time socially and politically And translations are not easy To explain the meaning in a line is easy You are not translating a word it’s the meter and then shades of those words A word has many shades and you have to choose the correct shade out of it You won’t find that meaning in a dictionary The language I have used is Hindustani because that’s my language the one I write in But more importantly to capture the nuances of Bangla was important the flavour of the local dialect that helped For instance “Gaaye ke than hathon main lekar balti ghutnon main rakhke vo jo tum dho rahe they gaye ko aur tumhare hathon ke kade balti se lagke khanakte they main to khadi dekhti rahi maine tumse kuch kaha nahin” Can you imagine translating this image unless you feel it visualise it You can’t translate if you have not seen this experienced this unless you can bring that image alive like he has done That’s the effort I have put in Q It’s a different Tagore we see in these poems not the stern and serious face that we see in Geetanjali Tagore ko padhte hue hum is bhool mein rehte hain ki Tagore dhaadi ke saath hi paida hue they (While reading Tagore we tend to forget that he wasn’t born with a beard) One must go through his romantic poems and that is why it is the period of his young age that I have chosen Not his Geetanjali which was his experience of spirituality that he wanted to put before the West People know about it I was looking at the young Tagore who was an actor who used to sing English songs from Hollywood movies He was an active jolly and handsome man That’s why I took up these poems Another interesting point is how he expresses the feeling of the female Jo uska aks apko Hindi shayari mein milta hai jab hum radha banke radhe ke bare main likhte hain (The essence of which you get in Hindi poetry when the writer becomes Radha and write about her) That’s the quality he has in describing the women of his village “Vo dono behne kyun hasti hain jab bhi paani bharne aati hain vo do behne hain jo jab bhi aati hain haste hue aati hain ghat pe kya vo janti hain ped ki aad se koi unko dekh raha hai” I try to bring it as easily as he did Q Tagore is world famous but people’s understanding of his works is limited given the huge volume of Bengali literature he has produced Do you think there is a need to translate Tagore in more languages One of the reasons I started working on this was because I was jealous of Bengalis They didn’t let Tagore out of Bengal because Viswa Bharti had rights over his works Bengali literature is very rich and I am glad it’s out of the bondage of Viswa Bharti It’s reaching out to people now New publications are coming out and now his music is even being produced in a very modern way For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News Service | Ambajibanaskantha | Published: February 13 2012 2:15 am Related News Chief Minister Narendra Modi today concluded his Sadbhavana Mission fast series at the temple town of Ambaji in Banaskantha districttalking about a major attack by anti-Gujarat forces in the next 24 hours.
