Lyrics

Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

(Áji) Veńukár van kii kathá kay
Pátá jharibár vedanáte háy
Múk mukhe se je cáhiyá ray

Háráyeche se je sab shyámalimá
Dhúlijhaiṋjháy sakal suśamá
Betasakuiṋje niipanikuiṋje
Madhu váyu ár nahi bay

Rudra devatá e kii tava khelá
Anala dáhane akaruńa liilá
Varśár sur áro kata dúr
Cátak jáciche marutrśáy

(আজি) বেণুকার বন কী কথা কয়
পাতা ঝরিবার বেদনাতে হায়
মূক মুখে সে যে চাহিয়া রয়

হারায়েছে সে যে সব শ্যামলিমা
ধূলিঝঞ্ঝায় সকল সুষমা
বেতসকুঞ্জে নীপনিকুঞ্জে
মধু বায়ু আর নাহি বয়

রুদ্র দেবতা এ কী তব খেলা
অনল দাহনে অকরুণ লীলা
বর্ষার সুর আরও কত দূর
চাতক যাচিছে মরুতৃষায়

What does the bamboo grove say today?
Alas, grieving her fallen leaves,
She responds to what she sees with mute face.

She has lost her verdant allure,
All grace blasted away by dust.
In the cane and kadam[nb 2] groves,
A pleasant breeze no longer blows.

Awesome Lord, what's Your game,
The cruel sport in murderous heat?
How far away is the music of rain,
With desert thirst, the pied cuckoo[nb 3] ascertains.

Notes

  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ The kadam, also known as kadamba, is a genus of evergreen trees, native to the Indian subcontinent, Southern China, and Southeast Asia. Its sweetly fragrant flower is used in the production of Indian sandalwood perfume.
  3. ^ The pied cuckoo is a partially migratory bird, considered in India to be a harbinger of rain due to its typical arrival just before the monsoon season. Sometimes the Bengali word cátak (chatak) is wrongly defined as "swallow" or "skylark".
