Ar Koto Kal

 

Lyrics: Ar Koto Kal

Author: Mira Bai

Book Name: None

Language: Bengali

Raga: Dhani

 

Ar Koto Kal was a Mira Bai bhajan which was translated in Bengali by Bangladeshi Vaisnavas. This song became quite popular through Vaiyasaki Dasas 1994 album, Charan Kamal. This is loosely based on Dhani, though the spirit of Dhani is very much prominent in this song.
