Alor pare andhar ase is the 2596th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Álor pare áṋdhár áse
Áṋdhár sheśe álo áse
Maner mayúr áj je káṋde
Kál se kaláp mele háse

Mane rekho e sár kathá
Jiivan nay shudhu vyarthatá
Álo áche kálo áche
Madhur viśe áche mishe

Áloy gherá ei je dhará
Rauṋ-berauṋer phánus bhará
Eo hiyáte trpti dite
Páre cháyáte ese

আলোর পরে আঁধার আসে
আঁধার শেষে আলো আসে
মনের ময়ূর আজ যে কাঁদে
কাল সে কলাপ মেলে' হাসে

মনে রেখো এ সার কথা
জীবন নয় শুধু ব্যর্থতা
আলো আছে কালো আছে
মধুর বিষে আছে মিশে'

আলোয় ঘেরা এই যে ধরা
রঙ-বেরঙের ফানুস-ভরা
এও হিয়াতে তৃপ্তি দিতে
পারে ছায়াতে এসে'

After luster dark arrives;
With ebon's end comes the light.
Mental peacock that today cries,
Tomorrow, fanning tail he smiles.

This the essence, in mind keep:
Life is not a mere futility.
Dark is there, but there is light;
Sweet is mixed in what is vile.

This same earth ringed by light-beams,
It's packed with balloons motley.
This too is inside heart to gratify,
Arriving from the shadow's other side.
