Bengali Lyrics:

 

                     কখন      বাদল-ছোঁ য়া লেগে 

                    মাঠে  মাঠে  ঢাকে  মাটি  সবুজ  মেঘে  মেঘে।।

                  ওই          ঘাসের ঘনঘোরে 

ধরণীতল  হল  শীতল  চিকন  আভায়  ভ’রে–

ওরা           হঠাৎ – গাওয়া  গানের মতো  এল  প্রাণের  বেগে।।

ওরা  যে  এই  প্রাণের  রণে  মরুজয়ের  সেনা,

ওদের  সাথে  আমার প্রাণের  প্রথম  যুগের  চেনা।

                  তাই        এমন  গভীর  স্বরে

                 আমার  আঁখি  নিল  ডাকি  ওদের  খেলাঘরে —

ওদের          দোল  দেখে  আজ  প্রাণে  আমার  দোলা  ওঠে  জেগে।।

 

 

The Song In English Script:

 

                         Kokhon  badol  chhonwa  lege

                         Mathe  mathe  dhake  mati  sobuj  meghe  meghe.

                         Oi  ghaser  ghonoghore

Dhoronitol  holo  sheetol  chikon  abhaye  bhore–

Ora hothat-gaowa ganer moto elo praner bege.

Ora  je  ei  praner  rone  morujoyer  sena,

Oder  sathe  amar  prane  prothom  juger  chena.

                        Tai  amon  gobhir  sware

                       Amar  ankhi  nilo  daki  oder  khelaghore —

Oder              dol  dekhe  aj  prane  amar  dola  othe  jege.

 

 

The Song In English Translation:

 

With the sudden touch of rains

Meadows billow with shades of green.

In that      thick mass of grass

Cools and glows the earth-skin—

They spurt like a startling burst of strain.

Soldiers of life, they’ve disarmed the dry spell

I’ve doted on them since time immemorial.

And so           to their vibrant call

My eyes go out to their playroom—

Seeing them sway my soul too sways in tune.
