This above lyric is one of the fabulous Lalon song named pabe samanye ki tar dekha. From this, Konthoujam Suranjit has translated as fanggadra samanyada makpu uba in Manipuri.

**Fakir Lalon Shah (1774/1775-1890) was born at an obscure village of Kushtia district, now in Bangladesh. One of the greatest mystic-singers the Indian subcontinent has ever produced, Lalon was perhaps the most radical voice in this subcontinent during British colonial rule.

He composed numerous songs which still provide spiritual and political inspiration to the Bengali rural peasant-- a class from which Lalon himself came, and also to freedom-fighters all over the world. He celebrates the freedom of body, soul, and even language from all repressive and divisive forces. Always opposed to casteism, sectarianism, and colonialism.

Konthoujam Suranjit is a distinguished poet and editor: Epom, a pan Manipuri journal, from the University of Chittagong in Bangladesh. Webcasted on January 05th 2007
