Jhum jhumajhum is the 498th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Jhum jhumájhum
Jhum jhumájhum
Jhumur bájiye cal
Torá cal go sabái vanke cal

Vaner bhitare áche kadamer phul
Áche shiuli keyá áche jhará baul
Mátháy báṋdhbo málá háte parbo bálá
Morá nácbo ghire ghire devtári sthal

Nácer tále ár gáner sure
Devtá moder thákbe ná dúre
Morá mánuś pashupákhi sabái mile
Tár carań dhoyábo d́hele áṋkhijal

ঝুম্ ঝুমাঝুম্
ঝুম্ ঝুমাঝুম্
ঝুমুর বাজিয়ে চল্
তোরা চল্ গো সবাই বনকে চল্

বনের ভিতরে আছে কদমের ফুল
আছে শিউলি-কেয়া আছে ঝরা বউল
মাথায় বাঁধবো মালা হাতে পরবো বালা
মোরা নাচবো ঘিরে ঘিরে দেবতারই স্থল

নাচের তালে আর গানের সুরে
দেবতা মোদের থাকবে না দূরে
মোরা মানুষ পশুপাখী সবাই মিলে
তার চরণ ধোয়াবো ঢেলে আঁখিজল

Jingle, jangle;
Jingle, jangle...
A song of love has rung out; so let's proceed.
All of you, move... to the woods, let's hurry!

Inside the forest, kadam flowers[nb 2] are there;
Night-jasmine[nb 3] and screwpine[nb 4] blossoms are falling.
On arms we'll wear bangles, on hair we'll tie garlands...
Round and around God's land we will dance.

At our rhythmic dance beat and lyric melody,
Far distant our Deity won't keep.
Humans, animals, and birds, we agree;
With the tears we did weep we will wash His holy feet.

  2. ^ The kadam, also known as kadamba, is a genus of evergreen trees, native to the Indian subcontinent, Southern China, and Southeast Asia. Its sweetly fragrant flower is used in the production of Indian sandalwood perfume.
  3. ^ The night-flowering jasmine, known as shephali or shiuli in Bengali, is a shrub whose fragrant flowers open at dusk and close at dawn. The flower is the official state flower of West Bengal.
  4. ^ The screwpine is a palm-like tree with a drooping appearance. It is native to the tropics and subtropics. The tree is dioecious in nature, that is, the male and female flowers grow on separate trees. Male flowers are tiny, white, and very shortlived; but they are highly valued for their fragrance. Those flowers are harvested (primarily in Orissa) early in the morning, because the fragrance is lost soon after the flower opens. For more information see here.
