Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Ámáy chot́t́a ekt́i man diyecho
Anek áshá rekhe
(Tabu) D́ákcho ámáy táráy táráy
Megher pháṋke pháṋke

Mát́ir gandhe gácher pátáy
Nadiir srote dúr niilimáy
Báṋdhá ámi paŕe gechi
Shatek badhár páke

Jáni bandhu káchei tháko
Dúrer theke kena d́áko
Pári ki tákáte ámi
Balo tomár dike

আমায় ছোট্ট একটি মন দিয়েছো
অনেক আশা রেখে'
(তবু) ডাকছো আমায় তারায় তারায়
মেঘের ফাঁকে ফাঁকে

মাটির গন্ধে গাছের পাতায়
নদীর স্রোতে দূর নীলিমায়
বাঁধা আমি পড়ে' গেছি
শতেক বাধার পাকে

জানি বন্ধু কাছেই থাকো
দূরের থেকে কেন ডাকো
পারি কি তাকাতে আমি
বলো তোমার দিকে

You've given me a mind that's small,
Storing so much hope in it.
And yet You call me from the stars
Amid the clouds, rift after rift.

With scent of earth and leaves on trees,
With yon blue sky and river-streams,
Entangled have I fallen
Into countless binding rings.

I know, my Friend, quite near You stay;
So why call me from far away?
Is there a way for me to gaze
At Thee, my Lord, please say.


This is how Sarkar himself described the meaning of the song—[4]

Oh, Macrocosm, You have given me a very small mind, a unit mind, a microcosmic mind; and You expect so much from this little mind. You are calling me from the twinkling of distant stars, through the openings of the clouds. But You know, there are hundreds of bondages in this world, and I am entangled in all these bondages – in the fragrance of the earth, in the leaves of the trees, in the flow of the rivers, in the distant azure sky – how can I respond to Your call? Oh, my Lord, if You are very near to me, then why do You call me from such a distance? I know it is because You want me to be still closer to You. And I also want to be still closer to You. And I also want You closer to me.
