Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Tumi esechile varaśár ráte
Ketakiigandhe mátáte
Masiimákhá sei krśńatithite
Áloker sudhá d́hálite

(Takhan) Niipamaiṋjari ashaninipáte
Ghanaghana shiharitechilo
Veńukákuiṋja jhaiṋjhár ráte
Ágháter dhvani ditechilo
Jalbhará megh bhese calechilo
Viśáde káṋdite káṋdite

Smitá duhitárá gharer końete
Kabariir veńii báṋdhite báṋdhite
Juthi málatii máláte sájáte
Shikhitechilo je nácite

Tomár ketakiisurabhi ekhano
Gáṋthá áche mor hiyáte

তুমি এসেছিলে বরষার রাতে
কেতকীগন্ধে মাতাতে
মসীমাখা সেই কৃষ্ণতিথিতে
আলোকের সুধা ঢালিতে

(তখন) নীপমঞ্জরি অশনিনিপাতে
ঘনঘন শিহরিতেছিলো
বেণুকাকুঞ্জ ঝঞ্ঝার রাতে
আঘাতের ধ্বনি দিতেছিলো
জলভরা মেঘ ভেসে চলেছিলো
বিষাদে কাঁদিতে কাঁদিতে

স্মিতা দুহিতারা ঘরের কোণেতে
কবরীর বেণী বাঁধিতে বাঁধিতে
যূথি মালতী মালাতে সাজাতে
শিখিতেছিলো যে নাচিতে

তোমার কেতকীসুরভি এখনো
গাঁথা আছে মোর হিয়াতে

You had come on a rainy night,
Heady with scent of screwpine[nb 2]
On those dark days[nb 3] inkstained,
To pour out the ambrosia of light.

Then, amid deadly thunderbolts, budding kadam[nb 4]
Had shuddered time and again.
On that stormy night, the bamboo grove
Had given off a sound of flogging;
And the rain-filled clouds had gone floating,
To weep and wail in sorrow.

Indoors were the smiling daughters,
Their hair to braid and plait,
To adorn with jasmine sprays
They had pinned to a topknot that dances.

Even now Your screwpine fragrance
Is imprinted upon my heart.


  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ The screwpine is a palm-like tree with a drooping appearance. It is native to the tropics and subtropics. The tree is dioecious in nature, that is, the male and female flowers grow on separate trees. Male flowers are tiny, white, and very shortlived; but they are highly valued for their fragrance. Those flowers are harvested (primarily in Orissa) early in the morning, because the fragrance is lost soon after the flower opens. For more information see here.
  3. ^ Krsna is said to have been born on the eighth day (aśt́amii) of the dark fortnight in Bhádra (the fifth month of the Bengali calendar, roughly mid-August to mid-September).
  4. ^ The kadam, also known as kadamba, is a genus of evergreen trees, native to the Indian subcontinent, Southern China, and Southeast Asia. Its sweetly fragrant flower is used in the production of Indian sandalwood perfume.
