Bhangai tomadeyr kaaj,
Bhaangtey geley thaamtey hobey
Chhi chhi neiko laaj.
Haat-pa bhaangley jora laagey
Hridoy bhaangley jorey na,
Maayer jeebon shesh holeyo
Maa kokhono haaraay na.
Oitijhyo niye khelchho khyala
Banglakey niye khelo na,
Shonshkritir jaagoron Banglar mukti
Eto obogya koro na.
Tomadeyr aachhey ortheyr jor
Aar aamadeyr praanbhora shroddha
Bidyar shaagor, aamra
Khoma chaoar nei spordha!!!!
You have learnt to break
Not to build
Breaking is your doing,
One must to stop before breaking, Tush tush, there is no shame.
Limbs heal when broken
A mother’s life may end
But she is never lost.
You are playing games with heritage
Don’t play with Bengal,
The awakening of culture is Bengal’s emancipation
Do not treat it with such disdain.
You have the strength of money
And our lives are filled with respect
Vidya’s sagar, we are ashamed
There isn’t the audacity to seek forgiveness!!!!
