Bengali English transliteration Word for Word translation
প্রাণ

ভুলবো না আর সহজেতে

সেই প্রাণে মন উঠবে মেতে

মৃত্যু মাঝে ঢাকা আছে

যে অন্তহীন প্রাণ


বজ্রে তোমার বাজে বাঁশি

সেকি সহজ গান

সেই সুরেতে জাগবো আমি


সেই ঝড় যেন সই আনন্দে

চিত্তবীণার তারে

সপ্তসিন্ধু দশ দিগন্ত

নাচাও যে ঝঙ্কারে


বজ্রে তোমার বাজে বাঁশি

সেকি সহজ গান

সেই সুরেতে জাগবো আমি

Praan

Bhulbona ar shohojete

Shei praan e mon uthbe mete

Mrittu majhe dhaka ache

je ontohin praan


Bojre tomar baje bashi

She ki shohoj gaan

Shei shurete jagbo ami


Shei jhor jeno shoi anonde

Chittobinar taare

Shopto-Shindhu dosh digonto

Nachao je jhonkare!

Life

I shall not ever easily forget,

My heart shall fill up with life,

Even in death, lies hidden

That endless life


On the ship, your flute plays,

But that is no ordinary tune,

I shall wake up to that tune. X2


On the ship, your flute plays,

But that is no ordinary tune,

Let me have, that very tune.


May I happily weather that storm,

Even on the verge of lifelessness,

Across 7 rivers, in 10 directions,

Make us dance with your tune.
