Andhar tithite esechile is the 1864th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Áṋdhár tithite esechile
Álote kena ele ná
Dukher nishiithe kena ele
Ghar sájáno halo ná

Balechile jathákále ásbe
Ámár ghare atithi habe
Ele akále
Prasádhan kará gelo ná

Svarńapradiipe ghrta salitá chilo
Surabhita dhúp dhúpadániite chilo
Pit́uli álpanár bát́á chilo
Áṋkite samay more dile ná

আঁধার তিথিতে এসেছিলে
আলোতে কেন এলে না
দুখের নিশীথে কেন এলে
ঘর সাজানো হ’ল না

বলেছিলে যথাকালে আসবে
আমার ঘরে অতিথি হবে
এলে অকালে
প্রসাধন করা গেল না

স্বর্ণপ্রদীপে ঘৃত-সলিতা ছিল
সুরভিত ধূপ ধূপদানীতে ছিল
পিটুলি-আল্পনার বাটা ছিল
আঁকিতে সময় মোরে দিলে না

On a gloomy day You had appeared;
Why not in light You came?
Why visit on a night of grief?
My domicile was not arranged!

You'd said You'll come at the right time;
You'll be a guest at home of mine.
But prematurely You arrived;
The decoration got not made.

In the gold lamp was ghee and wick,
And in the censer was a resin aromatic.[nb 2]
The alpana's rice-paste was pounded;
You allowed me not the time to paint.
