Bujhi ba amar diirgha jaminii is the 1216th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Bujhi bá ámár diirgha jáminii
Eta dine hala bhor
Eseche prabhát nútan varńe
Kare diye vibhor

Geche vibhávarii sabáre ávari
Rekhechila bahu jug
Geche se dáminii jáhár damake
Káṋpiyá ut́hita buk
Áṋdhárer jiiv sare geche járá
Ajathá jágáta shor

Náginiir pheńá viśáy ná váyu
Karál phańáy gráse náko áyu
Haraśe drpta jyotite diipta[nb 2]
Trpta citacakor

বুঝি বা আমার দীর্ঘ যামিনী
এত দিনে হ’ল ভোর
এসেছে প্রভাত নূতন বর্ণে
করে’ দিয়ে বিভোর

গেছে বিভাবরী সবারে আবরি’
রেখেছিল বহু যুগ
গেছে সে দামিনী যাহার দমকে
কাঁপিয়া উঠিত বুক
আঁধারের জীব সরে’ গেছে যারা
অযথা জাগাত শোর

নাগিনীর ফেনা বিষায় না বায়ু
করাল ফণায় গ্রাসে নাকো আয়ু
হরষে দৃপ্ত জ্যোতিতে দীপ্ত
তৃপ্ত চিতচকোর

My drawn-out night, could it be
At long last it's reached an end?
With new color has come morning,
Leaving me overwhelmed.

Gone is the night blanketing everything;
It had held sway for ages many.
Gone is the lightning with its sudden streaks,
Making bosoms heave, a-quivering.
Scrapped are those who were creatures of darkness,
Needlessly creating a commotion.

Serpents' froth does not poison the air;
Lifespans are not devoured by hooded fangs.
In the lively glee and shining light,
Mind's chukor,[nb 3] it gets satisfied.

  2. ^ In the audio rendition, diipta and drpta are reversed; however the printed version[2] seems to make more sense.
  3. ^ The chukor, also known as the red-legged or Himalayan partridge or curlew or bartavelle, is the national bird of Iraq and Pakistan. References to it date back to the Rg Veda. The chukor is reputed to gaze at the moon constantly and is hence said to be in love with the moon or to drink moonlight. In Indian mythology, the chukor often symbolizes intense love, sometimes unrequited.
