Maya Bono Biharini = LYRICS & TRANSLATION


 Lyrics 

Mayabono biharini horini
Gohono shopono shoncharini
Keno taare dhoribarey kori pon?
Okaron.

Thaak thaak nijo mone durete
Aami shudhu ba^nshoriro shurete
Porosho koribo ore pran mon
Okaron.

Chomokibe phagunero pobone
Poshibe akashbani srobone
Chitto akoolo hobe anukhkhon
Okaron.

Dur hote ami taare shadhibo
Gopono biroho dore e ba^ndhibo
Ba^ndhono-bihino shei je ba^ndhon
Okaron.

মায়াবন বিহারিনী 

পর্যায় : শ্যামা 

মায়াবন বিহারিনী হরিণী, 
গহনস্বপনসঞ্চারিণী, 
কেন তারে ধরিবারে করি পণ 
অকারণ।
থাক্ থাক্ নিজ-মনে দূরেতে, 
আমি শুধু বাঁশরির সুরে তে 
পরশ করিব ওর প্রাণমন 
অকারণ। 
চমকিবে ফাগুনের পবনে, 
পশিবে আকাশবাণী শ্রবণে, 
চিত্ত আকুল হবে, অনুখন 
অকারণ। 
দূর হ'তে আমি তারে সাধিব, 
গোপনে বিরহডোরে বাঁধিব - 
বাঁধনবিহীন সেই যে বাঁধন 
অকারণ।।


UNDERSTANDING THE SONG IN ENGLISH

Translation 


Illusive forest wanderer is a doe
One who roams in deep dreams
Why do you pledge to claw,
for no reason that streams......

May it hide in my own mind from a distance.
I'm the melody of the flute,in omnipresence.
That touches the heart & soul alike
for no reason that may strike.

Kindled by the heavy monsoon breeze
Trickles down the heavenly euphony
The heart becomes restless
for no reason that is harmony.

From afar shall I be enticing
Shall tie a bond in secrecy
The bond that is unseen
for no reason but pristine

 © Translation in English by Deepankar Choudhury
