Scene 3

(The next day Upamanyu goes to the field with the cows. In the morning for breakfast and in the afternoon for lunch the poor boy drinks milk from the udders of the cows. Happily he watches the cows grazing all day. He sings a soulful song.)

Amar bhabana

amar kamana

amar eshana

amar sadhana

tomar charane

peyechhe ajike thai

moher bandhan hiyar jatan

timir jiban shaman shasan

halo abasan nai nai ar nai

(My thoughts, my desires, my aspiration, my

life's disciplines

Have found their haven at Your Feet today.

The bondage of tempting attachment and pangs

of the heart,

The life of darkness and the torture of death,

No more I see, no more I feel.)
