Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Arup kotháy chile
Kabe náme ele tumi rúpe ele
Giite jagate mátále
Dhvanite chanda ánile

Chilo ná nidágh chilo ná varaśá
Chilo ná sharat shishire sarasá
Chilo náko keu shonáte bharasá
Kálátiite ghume chile

Hemanta shiit vasanta keu
Marma májháre jágáto ná d́heu
Kehai haraśe karera parashe
Bájáto ná viińá sure tále

অরূপ কোথায় ছিলে
কবে নামে এলে তুমি রূপে এলে
গীতে জগতে মাতালে
ধ্বনিতে ছন্দ আনিলে

ছিল না নিদাঘ ছিল না বরষা
ছিল না শরৎ শিশিরে সরসা
ছিল নাকো কেউ শোনাতে ভরসা
কালাতীতে ঘুমে ছিলে

হেমন্ত শীত বসন্ত কেউ
মর্ম মাঝারে জাগাতো না ঢেউ
কেহই হরষে করের পরশে
বাজাতো না বীণা সুরে তালে

Formless, where had You been?
When You came down, in form You appeared.
By song, the world You frenzied;
In sound a cadence You did bring.

Neither had there been a summer nor a monsoon;
There had been no autumn with succulent dew.
There had been no one to speak to, no refuge;
Time-transcending, You had been asleep.

Prewinter, winter, and spring, some person
Was not rousing waves at the heart's core.
Anyone, by touch of hand happily,
Wasn't playing a lute with tune and beat.
