Kasiprasad Gosh The Shair’s Farewell Song | A Critical Analysis

‘The Shair’s Farewell Song’ is a patriotic poem by Kasiprasad Gosh. Through this poem, the poet expresses the love and praise to the motherland of a person (the shair) who is grief-worn and goes to the sea to make an end (suicide) to his life to get rid of grief. Then he sings a song bidding farewell to his native land.

The poet, addressing his audience or readers, says that the grief-worn shair goes to the sea to die.  In the sea, the water is flowing making gigantic moves. The shair goes there and climbs up the craggy rock beside the sea. The sea is full of the tide and it arises woe in the heart of the shair. He, climbing up the craggy rock,  looks downwards clasping his hand and sees the sea is blowing and there he will meet his desired death. But before jumping down to the sea, he loiters a little and sings a song farewelling his dear native land.

He looks around and sings that it is his native land in whose valley there are various kinds of roses bloom, where many green-clad (with trees of green leaves) hills are standing majestically, from where the flowers spread their fragrance in the wind. It is his native land from whose sky the sun sends his rays and brightens the land. Many rivers flow down upon which the moon shines. The moonlight falls upon the water of the streams and brightens the beauty of the land. The mighty Ganga also flows through the land. Then turning his look to the sea, he says that the serene sea is smiling below the sky of his motherland. Besides these, many sacred rivers flow through the land and wash the greenwood and mountains. In the mountains, many pines and citron trees are standing proudly. It is his motherland, dear motherland whose name is lofty, fair and beautiful. It is the land of gods and bards (minstrels) of fame.

Singing so, the shair jumps down the sea to die in order to get rid of his grief, but the poet has not revealed what happened to the shair at the end. 

The song is full of Indian sensibility. The description of the natural objects is realistic no doubt, but its expression is poetic that wakes up our sense organs, and thus delights our heart and mind. 0 0 0
