Lyrics

Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Tomár káche ámár prashna
Shońo ogo bedaradii
Práńii kena keṋde áse
Hese báṋcalo ná jadi

Puśpa kena kiit́e kát́e
Madhu kháy kálo bhramar
Hási kena ná bikoy hát́e
Shishu káṋde aśt́aprahar
Káro mot́e kśud ná jot́e
Keu phele kháy kśiir dadhi

Sandhyáráge hátcháni dey
Kena nisháy aṋdhár ghanáy
Man kena vipathete jáy
Tumi jakhan ácho niravadhi

তোমার কাছে আমার প্রশ্ন
শোণো ওগো বেদরদী
প্রাণী কেন কেঁদে আসে
হেসে বাঁচলো না যদি

পুষ্প কেন কীটে কাটে
মধু খায় কালো ভ্রমর
হাসি কেন না বিকোয় হাটে
শিশু কাঁদে অষ্টপ্রহর
কারও মোটে ক্ষুদ না জোটে
কেউ ফেলে খায় ক্ষীর-দধি

সন্ধ্যারাগে হাতছানি দেয়
কেন নিশায় আঁধার ঘনায়
মন কেন বিপথেতে যায়
তুমি যখন আছো নিরবধি

Lord, to You these are my queries;
Indifferent One, hear me please.
Why do living beings come in tears,
When they survive only by smiling?

Why is the flower eaten by worms
And honey consumed by black bees?
Why aren't smiles sold at market
When babies cry perpetually?
Some can't scrape together a grain of wheat,
While others eat, scrapping a sea of kheer.

When evening colors have beckoned me,
Why then is the dark of night so deep?
Why does the mind wander astray
When You are present ever and always?
