Alo andhare hay din kete jay is the 1117th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Álo áṋdháre háy din ket́e jáy[nb 2]
Tumi ekhano to ele ná
Tabu dekhi álo d́háke ghana kálo
Áṋdhár javaniká sare ná

Phulera mrdu hási haye jáy bási
Ráteri gahane niirave
Púrńimár sudhá náshe káler kśudhá
Gráse cáṋde ráhu garave
Sab dekhe jái mane duhkha pái
Kichu je kahite pári ná

Shudhái mane mane tomáre gopane
Kena e álo cháyá kalpaná
Balo ná balo ná balo ná ámáre
Kena je e dhará racaná

আলো-আঁধারে হায় দিন কেটে যায়
তুমি এখনো তো এলে না
তবু দেখি আলো ঢাকে ঘন কালো
আঁধার যবনিকা সরে না

ফুলের মৃদু হাসি হয়ে যায় বাসি
রাতেরই গহনে নীরবে
পূর্ণিমার সুধা নাশে কালের ক্ষুধা
গ্রাসে চাঁদে রাহু গরবে
সব দেখে’ যাই মনে দুঃখ পাই
কিছু যে কহিতে পারি না

শুধাই মনে মনে তোমারে গোপনে
কেন এ আলো-ছায়া কল্পনা
বলো না বলো না বলো না আমারে
কেন যে এ ধরা রচনা

Alas, with light and dark, day goes by;
Until now, still You did not arrive.
Though I see dense black concealed by light,
The dark curtain, it draws not aside.

The flower's tender smile becomes frowsy,
Silently, within the night's obscurity.
Full-moon's light is consumed by time's hunger...
Moon, a morsel when the demon Rahu swaggers.
Viewing all, in the mind such pain I get;
Even a bit of it I can't express.

Inwardly, I ask of You in the utmost privacy:
What purpose serves this light-and-shade fancy?
Won't You please tell, won't You tell me
Why this world came into being?
