Category: Prokriti / Grishho (Nature / Summer)

 

Bengali Lyrics:

 

এসো, এসো, এসো হে বৈশাখ
তাপসনিশ্বাসবায়ে মুমূর্ষুরে দাও উড়ায়ে,
বৎসরের আবর্জনা দূর হয়ে যাক
যাক পুরাতন স্মৃতি, যাক ভুলে যাওয়া গীতি,
অশ্রুবাষ্প সুদূরে মিলাক।
মুছে যাক গ্লানি, ঘুচে যাক জরা,
অগ্নিস্নানে শুচি হোক ধরা
রসের আবেশরাশি শুষ্ক করি দাও আসি,
আনো আনো আনো তব প্রলয়ের শাঁখ
মায়ার কুজ্ঝটিজাল যাক দূরে যাক।

 

 

The Song In English Script:

 

Esho, esho, esho hey Boishakh 

Taposniswasbaye mumurshure dao uraye,

botsorer aborjona dur hoye jak

Jak puraton smriti, jak bhuley jawa geeti,

osrubashpo sudurey milak.

muchhe jak glani, ghuche jak jora,

ognisnaney shuchi hok dhora

roser abeshrashi shushko kori daao ashi,

ano ano ano tobo proloyer shankh

mayar kujjhotijal jak durey jak.

 

 

The Song In English Translation:

 

O Boishakh*, I call on you

Dust away all that’s dying with your ascetic breath

Let the year’s dross go.

Let go old memories, let go forgotten melodies,

Let mists of the eye thin far away into dissolution.

Let weariness be erased, infirmity cease,

Hallowed be the Earth to bathe in your fire

Come and dry all the sap of slush,

Bring forth and sound your conch of annihilation.

Let the foggy mesh of illusion be gone.

 

*First month of summer
