Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Niilákáshe álo bháse
Eman dine ke go mane ele
Ashoke paláshe
Vanabhúmi háse vyathá bhule

Caiṋcala pavane phulareńu bhese jáy
Ucchala svanane marmare keká gáy
Jhaiṋkrta manane vidhrta nikkańe
Vyathá bhuliye ke práń bharále

Áṋkhira aiṋjane smrtira guiṋjan
Asitimá bhaiṋjane varńa suraiṋjan
Áshá bhese jáy
Mandákrántá chande tále tále

নীলাকাশে আলো ভাসে
এমন দিনে কে গো মনে এলে
অশোকে পলাশে
বনভূমি হাসে ব্যথা ভুলে'

চঞ্চল পবনে ফুলরেণু ভেসে' যায়
উচ্ছল স্বননে মর্মরে কেকা গায়
ঝঙ্কৃত মননে বিধৃত নিক্কণে
ব্যথা ভুলিয়ে কে প্রাণ ভরালে

আঁখির অঞ্জনে স্মৃতির গুঞ্জন
অসিতিমা ভঞ্জনে বর্ণ সুরঞ্জন
আশা ভেসে' যায়
মন্দাক্রান্তা ছন্দে তালে তালে

Light floats upon a blue sky;
On such a day, Who comes to mind?
Ashok and palash beside,
Affliction forgotten, woodlands smile.

Floral pollen drifts upon a restless wind,
And peacock-calls sing out with rustling impassioned.
The jangled thoughts gripped in His anklets' chime,
Having banished pain, Who filled up life?

With stibnite upon eyes comes memory's whisper,
Dispelling what's made black and painting well in color,
Hope goes a-floating
In slow-stepping[nb 2] cadence, beat after beat.


  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ Here both the literal and the technical translation apply. Mandákrántá is a metric style employed in classic Samskrta verse. It is often used for expressing mystic love. In mandákrántá, the number of syllables and the pattern of heavy and light syllables is maintained strictly throughout each verse. Rhyming may or may not be there; however, in this example of mandákrántá, that too is maintained. Literally, the word, mandákrántá, means "lady slowly approaching" or "slow stepper".
