Chapter 56: Ishara

Boloto kar isharai
Golap tar gondho bilai?
Boloto kar isharai
Megher pahar brishti jhorai?
Ei duniyai
Ei duniyai
(Tell me, on whose gesture
Does the rose give out its fragrance?
Tell me, on whose gesture
Do the clouds release their downpour?
In this world
In this world)

Boloto kar isharai
Hashe chad akashe
Jonaki dei je alo
Mayabi abeshe
(Tell me, on whose gesture
Does the moon in the sky smile?
With the firefly glowing
In an air of enchantment)

She kotha bhebe bhebe
Mon amar jai hariye
(Pondering over all this
My mind wanders adrift
To a faraway, unknown place
To a faraway unknown place)

Who made the clouds come by
So we can live and be
Sending rain, so soft and mild
Cleansing you and me

Who gave me clear eyes to see
The moon when it beams
He taught me how silent love can be
A road to your dreams

Who taught the mothers of the world
To love us the wa they do
When all the trials unfurl
All they think of is you

You still make me cry
You still make me laugh
Don’t let me ever forget
About our golden past

And so the world moves on its way
Newcomers join everyday
Tomorrow they will say
Tomorrow they will say
