Neerja you are spot on. The tune of this song was being used in latest "Parineeta" by Shantanu Moitra. This song was influenced by a Scottish song "Ye Banks & Brae" by Robert Burns. It's originally a part of Kabiguru's geetinatya "Kaalmrigaya", which depicts the death of Shravan Kumar by King Dasharathha's shabdvedi arrow while the former was collecting water for his blind parents from Saryu river in dark.

I will try to see the show, Rabindranath Tagore his writings were indeed brilliant, which is an understatement, I have read very few, but few poems I have, cos of the language constraint too, Translations many times dilute the impact/

Here i agree with you . Translation looses the essence of the original .

              What is the meaning of "Chokher Baali") . Whether its Sharat or Tagore , I found woman character strong  not crying buckets of tears . Found them to be dignified whether it resulted with pain . Here Binodini being the young and how left to readers to understand her physically yearnings when she watches both of newly weds and Asha telling her little details about her time spent with her husband . Somewhere Binodini going through  fighting so many of demons of her conscious . The hindi version i read there they both have common name Aankh ki Kirkiri and this was the name of the novel also .

This song is an extraordinary adaption of Robert Burns's ( Famous Scottish Composer) -ye banks and braes o' bonnie doon. Tagore adapted it so amazingly.

Yes, you are again correct regarding the songs. In the 2nd clip it's being sung by Madhabi Mukherjee herself in Satyajit Ray's rendition of "Nashtaneerh" ("Chaarulata")

I recently read the book in hindi but knew from the story that it was Charulata . I always wanted to know the end .

Regarding the meaning of "Chokher Baali", I have written this to Vimal w.r.t. his identical question: 
It's an idiom in Bengali language. It means something which hurts your eyes in literal sense (Chokh = Eye, Baali = Sand). The inner meaning is someone who has been an obstacle in one's life, who can't be easily got rid of. An enemy, in a nut shell, whom one hates like anything but can't directly call an enemy and revolt against.


Not only Rabindranath Thakur or Sarat Chandra Chattyopadhyay; almost all the Bengali authors have created very strong female characters in their literary works. Author Jarasandha (real name : Charu Chandra Chakraborty) was a jailer in his real life in British India and almost all his novels are factual accounts of various criminals he has encountered while discharging his duty. Astonishingly, his novels have got female characters, whom the society pinpoints as criminals, who are extraordinarily strong and with loads of self-respect. While reading the same you would eventually end up teary-eyed and sympathizing with those so called "criminals"'. You can yourself try "The Voyage" ("Paadi"), "Louhakapat", "Tamashi" etc., if you get the English translations. "Tamashi" has been immortalized by Bimal Ray through his "Bandini". "Paadi" was also being converted into a movie. You would be able to find the same on YouTube.
