Lyrics

Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Ei bhule jáoyá vrajabhúmite
Tumi ábár eso he murári
Áj jamuná ujáne bahe ná
Sethá báje náko madhu báṋsharii

Kadambatale kare náko khelá
Tava sáthe ár vrajabálakerá
Mákhan curir bhayete gopiirá
D́háke náko ár kat́orá
Tabu tárá ájo mane práńe jáne
Tumi kevali táderi

Jamunár tat́e rúperi hát́e
Tamálakuiṋje gokulera bát́e
Oŕanáy mukh d́háká gopiká
Shudháy ná kathá tomári

এই ভুলে’ যাওয়া ব্রজভূমিতে
তুমি আবার এসো হে মুরারি
আজ যমুনা উজানে বহে না
সেথা বাজে নাকো মধু বাঁশরী

কদম্বতলে করে নাকো খেলা
তব সাথে আর ব্রজবালকেরা
মাখন চুরির ভয়েতে গোপীরা
ঢাকে নাকো আর কটোরা
তবু তারা আজও মনে প্রাণে জানে
তুমি কেবলই তাদেরই

যমুনার তটে রূপেরই হাটে
তমালকুঞ্জে গোকুলের বাটে
ওড়নায় মুখ-ঢাকা গোপিকা
শুধায় না কথা তোমারই

To this neglected land of Braja,[nb 2]
Oh Demon-Slayer,[nb 3] please do come again.
Today the Jamuna[nb 4] flows not upstream,
Nor does Your sweet flute resound there.

Under the kadam tree, no play happens
Of the Braja boys with Yourself.
The dairymaids in fear of butter's theft,
No longer do they hide their goblets;
But till now nonetheless, they feel deeply
You are always theirs only.

In markets of cosmetics on the banks of Jamuna,
In groves of bay-leaf trees upon the Gokul paths,
The milkmaid's daughter, face encased by orna,
Regarding Thee does she ask?

Notes

  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ Kanpur, where this song was given, lies on the southern outskirts of Braja. At the time when this song was given (1984), the entire geo-cultural area of Braja was in disrepair due to long neglect. That is still the case today.
  3. ^ Murá (মুরা) was a general of King Narakasura, who attacked Dvaraka, the capital of Krśńa's kingdom. According to legend, on the day before Diipavali (the new-moon day of the month of Karttik, roughly mid-October to mid-November), Krśńa's wife, Satyabhámá, defeated and killed Narakasura. However, Krśńa is credited with the earlier slaying of Narakasura's general, Murá. Hence, Krśńa is sometimes referred to as Murári (মুরারি). According to mythology, both Narakasura and Murá were demons. So, murári may be loosely translated as "slayer of demons".
  4. ^ The river Jamuna is closely associated with the story of Krsna in his early life as Vraja Gopal. On the stormy night of Krsna's birth, the Jamuna is said to have parted and made way for Krsna's father, Vasudeva, carrying Krsna to safety. Moreover, Krsna and his childhood friends used to play on the banks of the Jamuna.
