Kaj kare jete esechi dharate is the 1307th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Káj kare jete esechi dharáte
Kurukśetra ei dhará
Basá ár shoyá stháńuvat haoyá
E nahe jiivaner dhárá

Krśńa tumi já kare giyechile
Cakre tuńiire jáhá karechile
Se amar kathá se amrta gáthá
Rahiyáche hethá smrti jhará

Thámivár kona upáy je nái
Tava ákarśańe cale sabái
E kurukśetre dvaepáyanete
Se kathá rayeche giitibhará

কাজ করে’ যেতে এসেছি ধরাতে
কুরুক্ষেত্র এই ধরা
বসা আর শোয়া স্থাণুবৎ হওয়া
এ নহে জীবনের ধারা

কৃষ্ণ তুমি যা’ করে’ গিয়েছিলে
চক্রে তুণীরে যাহা করেছিলে
সে অমর কথা সে অমৃত গাথা
রহিয়াছে হেথা স্মৃতি-ঝরা

থামিবার কোন উপায় যে নাই
তব আকর্ষণে চলে সবাই
এ কুরুক্ষেত্রে দ্বৈপায়নেতে
সে কথা রয়েছে গীতিভরা

We have come to the world to go on working;
This Earth is a battlefield.[nb 2]
Sitting and reclining, growing immobile,
It is not the flow of life.

Krsna, what You had accomplished,
What You did with discus and a quiver,
That tale immortal, that ode ambrosial,
Trickling here is the recollection.

There's no way to call it quits;
One and all move per Your attraction.
On this Kuruksetra with its Sage Vyasa,
That saga has remained ballad-filled.


  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ The specific reference in this line is to Kuruksetra, the battlefield on which Krsna and the Pandavas defeated the Kaoravas in a dharmic war. That reference is repeated and stressed in the penultimate line of this song. Note also that this song was given at that very same historical location.
