Phulera vanete bhramara eseche is the 389th song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Phulera vanete bhramará eseche
Gunguniye kii kathá kayeche
Se je cáhe shudhu phulera sab madhu
Báki jáhá kichu phele rekheche

Jáhá chilo d́háká kuṋŕira gahane
Ati sajatane ati gopane
Nimeśe sei madhu niyeche nihsheśe
Niye nevár kathá jániye diyeche

Suvás chilo mákhá reńute reńute
Madhu nite giye suvás geche sáthe
Phuler sab reńu mekheche gáyete
Mekhe nevár kathá káńe shuniyeche

ফুলের বনেতে ভ্রমরা এসেছে
গুনগুনিয়ে কী কথা কয়েছে
সে যে চাহে শুধু ফুলের সব মধু
বাকি যাহা কিছু ফেলে রেখেছে

যাহা ছিলো ঢাকা কুঁড়ির গহনে
অতি সযতনে অতি গোপনে
নিমেষে সেই মধু নিয়েছে নিঃশেষে
নিয়ে নেবার কথা জানিয়ে দিয়েছে

সুবাস ছিলো মাখা রেণুতে রেণুতে
মধু নিতে গিয়ে সুবাস গেছে সাথে
ফুলের সব রেণু মেখেছে গায়েতে
মেখে নেবার কথা কাণে শুণিয়েছে

In the flower grove, a bumblebee has entered;
Humming, what does she mean to say?
She simply wants all the floral nectar,
Every bit that has been retained.[nb 2]

It was hard to get, concealed by the blossom
So very carefully, so very stealthily.
With one mind, she carried the nectar off;
And with the taking, that fact she revealed.

Sweet fragrance there was and smeared with pollen;
With the removal of nectar also went the scent.
All the flower pollen covered her as she went;
Thus coated from the theft, she reported the event.


  1. ^ For details on the notation, see Roman Bengali transliteration.
  2. ^ This song seems to be a metaphor for the spiritual quest or possibly for all of life. Depending on how one views the song, the bumblebee could be either the spiritual aspirant or the object of her/his devotion (God). The metaphor is built on the foraging behavior of bumblebees.
