Katha diye kena ele na is the 2029th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2] This song and the next one seem to be closely connected. This song might also be the start of more than just a two-song series in a musical drama of enlightenment.

Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Kathá diye kena ele ná
Ásár ásháy base
Kata jug geche bhese
Kata nishi táo jáni ná

Shuńi tumi mane ácho
Maner kathá shuńicho
Ámár mane ki tháko ná

Kál nishi ket́e geche
Aruń prabhát eseche
Mor nishi kena kát́e ná

কথা দিয়ে কেন এলে না
আসার আশায় বসে’
কত যুগ গেছে ভেসে’
কত নিশি তাও জানি না

শুণি তুমি মনে আছ
মনের কথা শুণিছ
আমার মনে কি থাক না

কাল নিশি কেটে’ গেছে
অরুণ প্রভাত এসেছে
মোর নিশি কেন কাটে না

Word having given, why did You not arrive?
Seated in expectation of Your arrival,
Ages aplenty, they've gone floating by;
How many nights... I don't even know that.

I hear You are present within psyche;
To inner secrets You are listening.
Inside my mind, do You not reside?

Yesternight has disappeared;
Arrived has the crimson morning.
Yet this night of mine, why is it not excised?
