Niśpatra vanabhúmi
Niśpuśpa dinete ele
Kishalay bhare dile
Mará d́ále phul phot́ále

Je áshá jhariyá geche
Je bháśá múk hayeche
Se ásháy gucche gucche
Mukharatá ánile

Je saritá shukhiye
Marute geche háriye
Phalgudhárá ániye
Táháke baháye dile

নিষ্পত্র বনভূমি
নিষ্পুষ্প দিনেতে এলে
কিশলয় ভরে দিলে
মরা ডালে ফুল ফোটালে

যে আশা ঝরিয়া গেছে
যে ভাষা মূক হয়েছে
সে আশায় গুচ্ছে গুচ্ছে
মুখরতা আনিলে

যে সরিতা শুকিয়ে
মরুতে গেছে হারিয়ে
ফল্গুধারা আনিয়ে
তাহাকে বহায়ে দিলে

Leafless the forest,
Without blossom, on the day You came...
Fresh reddish leaves You infused;
On withered branch You made flowers bloom.

The hope that has been fading,
The language that's been losing speech...
To that expectation in clusters aplenty,
You brought loquacity.

The river that's evaporated,
Gotten lost in the arid wilderness...
Having brought Phalgu's undercurrent,[nb 2]
That dried-up stream, You made it run.


  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ Much of the year the Phalgu River flows mostly or entirely hidden beneath its sandy bed. The river's full form only becomes visible with the monsoon floods. Hence, the flow of Phalgu is taken figuratively to mean an undercurrent of emotion.
