    You might have noticed that I've been into posting music videos this past week; that's because a friend over on the Medjugorje forum got me started last Sunday. Anyway...

    Bet you can't watch this without smiling...

    OK, I’ve fallen in love with this song – Praan by Garry Schyman – since I stumbled on it yesterday. The lyrics were based on the poem Stream of Life by Rabindranath Tagore, Asia’s first nobel laureate.

    Stream of Life
    The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
    runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.
    It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
    in numberless blades of grass
    and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.
    It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
    and of death, in ebb and in flow.
    I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
    And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.

    The vocalist is Palbasha Sidique - a 17 year old Bangladeshi girl who lives in Minneapolis, USA.

    Here are the lyrics in Bengali if you want to sing along:

    Bhulbona ar shohojete
    Shei praan e mon uthbe mete
    Mrittu majhe dahka ache
    Je ontohin praan

    Bojre tomar baje bashi
    She ki shohoj gaan
    Shei sherete jagbo ami

    Bojre tomar baje bashi
    She ki shohoj gaan
    Shei sherete jagbo ami

    Bojre tomar baje bashi
    She ki shohoj gaan
    Shei sherete jagbo ami

    Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde
    Chittobinar tare
    Shotto-shundo dosh digonto
    Nachao je jhonkare!

    Bojre tomar baje bashi
    She ki shohoj gaan
    Shei sherete jagbo ami

    Bojre tomar baje bashi
    She ki shohoj gaan
    Shei sherete jagbo ami

    Bojre tomar baje bashi
    She ki shohoj gaan
    Shei sherete jagbo ami

    My 17 yr old is a way and I need to go out and mow the lawn, after watching the dancing I'll do it with a grin from ear to ear. Thank you, what a great way to start the day.
