Cande meghete khela is the 1231st song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Cáṋde meghete khelá
Dúr ákáshe svapna jágáy oi
Bhule giye mát́ir máyá
Ákásh páne takiye rai

Álo jhará jyotsná ráte
Hátcháni dey sudúr hate
(Ámi) Thákte ná pári gharete
Álor ságar náce thai thai

Ke go tumi ajáná baṋdhu
D́hele cala práńer madhu
(Tumi)[nb 2] D́eke cala ámáy shudhu
E vicched kon práńete sai

চাঁদে মেঘেতে খেলা
দূর আকাশে স্বপ্ন জাগায় ওই
ভুলে’ গিয়ে মাটির মায়া
আকাশ পানে তাকিয়ে রই

আলো-ঝরা জ্যোৎস্না রাতে
হাতছানি দেয় সুদূর হ’তে
(আমি) থাকতে না পারি ঘরেতে
আলোর সাগর নাচে থই থই

কে গো তুমি অজানা বঁধু
ঢেলে’ চল প্রাণের মধু
তুমি ডেকে’ চল আমায় শুধু
এ বিচ্ছেদ কোন্‌ প্রাণেতে সই

The game between moon and the clouds,
In yonder firmament a dream does rise.
Forgotten is worldly enchantment;
I keep gazing toward the sky.

On the resplendent moonlit night,
From afar it beckons...
I cannot remain at home while
Dances the whole ocean of effulgence.

Oh Who are You, my Unknown Friend?
You go away, having poured life's nectar.
You leave, after just calling me...
In my heart, how can I bear this separation?
