Ajáná pathik thámo go khánik
অজানা পথিক থামো গো খানিক
Unknown Traveler, do pause for a moment;
- For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
- In at least one of the audio renditions, this word is sung as kichui. However, in all of the Bangla editions, from start to finish, the word is given as simply kichu. The meaning is almost the same. Here kichu has been retained, without prejudice.
- According to the Samsad Bengali-English Dictionary, d́álá is a tray-shaped basket that typically is used for holding offerings to a deity.
- The imagery in this song is reminiscent of the ancient Indian rite of svayamvará, whereby a girl of marriageable age selects her husband.
