Katakal ar katakal priya is the 2261st song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Katakál ár katakál priya
Patha ceye base thákibo
Tumi balo ná
Udayásta karmavyasta
Thekeo more jánáo ná

Anantakál tomár paridhi
Bhúloke dyuloke ákásh udadhi
Siimita káler ámi pratinidhi
Mor kathá jena bhulo ná

Budbud ámi tomár ságare
Kata ná úrmi sadá ese paŕe
Ei áchi ámi ei nei[nb 2]
Mor sáthe liilá koro ná

কতকাল আর কতকাল প্রিয়
পথ চেয়ে বসে’ থাকিব
তুমি বল না
উদয়অস্ত কর্মব্যস্ত
থেকেও মোরে জানাও না

অনন্তকাল তোমার পরিধি
ভূলোকে দ্যুলোকে আকাশ উদধি
সীমিত কালের আমি প্রতিনিধি
মোর কথা যেন ভুলো না

বুদ্বুদ আমি তোমার সাগরে
কত না ঊর্মি সদা এসে’ পড়ে
এই আছি আমি এই নেই
মোর সাথে লীলা কোরো না

How long, how much longer, Darling,
Will I keep watching path and waiting?
Oh, You do not speak.
From sunrise to sunset I am busy,
And thereafter You don't tell me.

Time without limit is Your circumference,
The sky and sea, both on earth and in heaven.
But I am an agent of temporal confinement;
May my plight not escape Your memory.

I am a bubble on Your ocean;
So many waves, don't they constantly bombard?
This am I, then this I'm not;
With me, please stop playing.

  2. ^ In the audio rendition, the extra word bhái (brother/cousin) is added at the end of this line. But that inclusion is not supported by any Bengali text source. Hence it is deemed to be incorrect.
