Bengali English transliteration English 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!

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
