Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Ámi tomáy jáni
E kathá balite páribo ná
Ná ná ná
E kathá balite páribo ná

Cená hayeo tumi ajáná go
Ajáná rágete bájáo viińá

Diighir jale jabe kamal phot́e
Cáṋder álo jakhan dhuloy lot́e
Jágarańe jáy nidrá t́ut́e
Tomár se mádhurii bhulibo ná

Tumi áŕále thekeo sab kichu je
Gopan theke mohan báṋshii báje
Eká tumi ácho anek sáje
Anek náme rúpe chande náná

আমি তোমায় জানি
এ কথা বলিতে পারিবো না
না না না
এ কথা বলিতে পারিবো না

চেনা হয়েও তুমি অজানা গো
অজানা রাগেতে বাজাও বীণা

দীঘির জলে যবে কমল ফোটে
চাঁদের আলো যখন ধুলোয় লোটে
জাগরণে যায় নিদ্রা টুটে
তোমার সে মাধুরী ভুলিবো না

তুমি আড়ালে থেকেও সব কিছু যে
গোপন থেকে মোহন বাঁশী বাজে
একা তুমি আছো অনেক সাজে
অনেক নামে রূপে ছন্দে নানা

You I do know...
I won't be able to say so.
No, no, no;
I won't be able to say so.

Even when noticed, unknown You remain;
With unknown music the veena You play.[nb 2]

When a lotus in lake water happens to bloom,
When rolling in dust is the light of the moon,
Then slumber gets shattered with resurgence;[nb 3]
That kindness of Yours I will not forget.

Though You are concealed, everything is just You;
From a hidden location plays Your hypnotic flute.[nb 4]
You are but one, dressed in multiple garments,
With multiple names, in form and rhythm different.


  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ This is apparently a reference to Shiva, who is credited by Sarkar with inventing the veena.[3]
  3. ^ These three lines seem to be about the advent of Taraka Brahma. When He appears in physical form, He polarizes the world, ending slumber and bringing progressive change.
  4. ^ This might be a reference to Krsna, who is often portrayed as playing a flute. But, if so, then presumably it would be Shiva as Krsna.
