"Please allow me to sing a song for you"1

Rintu has just sung a song by Tagore. I shall tell you a funny story. About four years ago, at around ten o'clock at night, I came back home from Aspiration-Ground after our meditation. A middle-aged Indian lady was standing in front of my house. I spoke to her in Bengali. Then she said, "Sri Chinmoy, Sri Chinmoy, I have a very strong desire!"

I said, "What is it?"

"I would like to sing a song for you! I know I am not your disciple, but please allow me to sing a song for you." I stood in front of my house, and very nicely she sang this song, Klanti amar khama karo prabhu. She was a Bengali lady. Her name was perhaps Sushmitam. She wanted to sing the song for me, and she sang so beautifully.
