A Soulful Cry of Anguish against Fate

A Soulful Cry of Anguish against Fate

(“The Tale of the Lonely Ghost”, a film (2013) by ANUP SINGH - who collaborated on the screenplay as well, an Indian, a Sikh born in Dar-es-Salaam but settled in Switzerland – enjoys the good fortune of an exceptionally brilliant Parisian: Béatrice THIRIET for the musical contribution: the tone/mood of the multi-tragical tour de force is struck right from the start and maintained right through to the end, a profoundly moving poetical elegy on the fate of simple village folk, victims of their own traditions and taboos.  Set in the post-Independence India-Pakistan “partition” torn Punjab during the Hindu-Muslim and Sikh carnage in 1947, the film must convey even at this late date some of the stark déchirements of religious conflicts and political faux pas: a British magistrate who had no inkling of the ethno-religious set-up of the region merely settled the border issue between the two new countries by drawing a blunderbuss line across the map. The sets and frames vacillate constantly between desolate rugged terrain and other-worldly Rembrandtesque facial expressions whose under-tones depict fierce obsessions and helplessnesses in the wake of tradition and custom reducing every character to mere pawns in the fatidic drama of interplay with even the supernatural. Near the end, at the moment of dénouement Béatrice Thiriet introduces an excerpt of a song in the background which best encapsulates the spirit of the telefilm, at about 1 hour 13 minutes 53 seconds.

The transliteration is approximate, and my English translation takes directly after the French sub-titles – with apologies and thanks to the film property owners, if they have no objections for I do not know how to obtain prior permission.)

roko ji kohi roko jaathu jagumathu jagumathu ji
raathu va geindi kaali
chaduthjar jaave lasuthaaraa lasuthaaraa lasuthaaraa
chaduthjar jaave lasuthaaraa lasuthaaraa lasuthaaraa
isukhi rathi ya kare shaara
isukhi rathi ya kare share
roko ji kohi toko toko ji kohi toko
suhi saruthalu saruthalu ji
raathu gaali

La nuit glisse sur nous
Un serpent de passion
L’étoile rouge sang s’élève
Impregnée d’amour elle nous fait signe
Retenez-moi, je vous en prie
La pas de la porte vibre
Rouge, rouge encore


The night slithers over our bodies
A serpent of passion
The blood-red star over the horizon
The blood-red star over the horizon
Shining with love beckons us
Shining with love beckons us
Hold me back, I implore you
The doorstep quivers
Red, still glowing red

OUR WEDDING VOWS

page turning suspense filled the vaulted sepulchral air
   ushering the veiled spouse to be
while afar off trumpets did blare
   (arranged by the well known matchmaker Harriet Kuritsky)
creating the ambience analogous to a renaissance faire
   yet contrasted in that this bachelor and other men related to me
segregated with females and males at a set distance away i.e. not physically 
near
   dictated by mandates of the Hebrew coda stemming from Moses biological tree
which separate quarters ample enough to spare
  until the proper toll of the bell would peal accompanied by yippee!
 
after Rabbi Boyce officiated for Matthew Scott 
   and Abby Robin, the crowd exalted with cheers
of L’Chiam with chutzpah oompah’s sizzling and hot.
 
klezmer musicians played schmaltz
which accompanied the hoopla as couples did waltz.
 
all the while family, friends and relatives blessed the new groom and bride 
   although highly orthodox, the men removed respective skullcap 
more commonly known as the yarmulke some plain others dyed
   women and children broke out in traditional dance and song while other did 
clap
exemplifying Yahweh to deliver mazal tov and shalom as spiritual guide
   to the pronounced husband and wife who pledged their troth in a snap.
 
toward conclusion of this typical Jewish wedding, a full goblet of kosher red wine
   got tossed in the air
this (in conjunction with crush of the emptied wine glass) communicated a sign
   and marshaled the crowd to begin a local Jerusalem exodus symbolic and 
clear.
 
as the newlyweds blissfully and radiantly strolled arm in arm
   and exited the Synagogue, the euphoric and excited crowd
tossed handfuls of uncle Ben’s unconverted rice grown from a nearby organic 
farm
a chauffeur waited to shuttle them to their honeymoon location
   passersby waved and bowed e'en thy first grade school marm!
