Arunokanti Ke Go Jogi Bhikhari-Lyrics & Translation


Lyrics

Arunokanti Ke Go Jogi Bhikhari.
Nirobe Heshe, Darailo Eshe
Prakhar Tej Tobo Neharite Naari.

Raasbilasini Aami Ahirini
Shyamal Kishore Rup Shudhu Chini
Ambar Heri Aaj E Ki Jyotipunjo
Hey Girijapati, Kothaye Giridhari.

Sambar Sambar Mahima Tobo
Hey Brajesh Bhairab, Aami Brajabala.
Hey Shiva Sundar, Bagh-chhal Parihar
Dhoro Natbarbesh, Poro Nipmala.

Naba Megh Chandane Dhaki Ango Jyoti.
Priya Hoye Dekha Dao, Tribhubanpati.
Parbati Nohi Aami-Aami Srimati
Bishaan Feliya Hou Banshori-Dhari.  

অরুণ কান্তি কে গো যোগী ভিখারী 
নীরবে হেসে দাঁড়াইলে এসে 
প্রখর তেজ তব নেহারিতে নারি ।

রাস বিলাসিনী আমি আহিরিণী 
শ্যামল কিশোর রূপ শুধু চিনি
অম্বরে হেরি আজ একি জ্যোতিপুঞ্জ 
হে গিরিজা পতি কোথা গিরিধারী।

সম্বর সম্বর মহিমা তব
হে ব্রজেশ ভৈরব আমি ব্রজবালা 
হে শিব সুন্দর, বাঘছাল পরিহর
ধর নটবরবেশ পর নীপমালা

নব মেঘ চন্দনে ঢাকি অঙ্গ জ্যোতি 
প্রিয় হয়ে দেখা দাও ত্রিভুবন পতি
পার্বতী নহি আমি; আমি শ্রীমতি 
বিষাণ ফেলিয়া হও বাঁশরী ধারী.

Lyrics: Kazi Nazrul Islam.
Music: Kazi Nazrul Islam.


Translation


Who is the vagabond ascetic having the form of the Sun?
Appears besides me; smiling quietly!
Can't see you against your blazing shine. 

Love dancing, me-a dairybeau 
Your young youthful form is all I know.
What a blazing sight in skies I saw.
Hey King of mountains, where is the lifter of mountain.

Your glory please do contain.
Hey, the Lord of the grassland, I'm mere maid of the land.
Hey, the Shiva-the Grand, the tiger-skin is whose apron-
Show your form of dancer, wear Kadamba's garland. 

With sandal of new clouds your blazing body please cover.
O' the lord, present yourself before me as my lover.
Not as the Goddess of power but as wife and partner.   
Leave aside the horn-whistle and be a flute thespian.

P.S: 

(For my non-Hindu, non-Bengali readers)

There are two Gods in Hinduism having a dark complexion.
One Shiva and the other Krishna.
Where Shiva is the primeval god and a fierce lover 
who shook the world when his wife self cremated herself;
Krishna is a passionate lover.

Shiva, on Shiva Ratri is worshipped by unmarried girls 
for a suitable husband.
Here such a desire of a village girl is described. 

Kazi Nazrul Islam, though being a Muslim himself had a 
deep understanding of Hinduism (like many Muslims in India)
and he described the desire of an ordinary village girl.

The girl wishes Shiva to be his lover but she can't look at him.
She wishes that he may cool down and adopt the role of a
passionate lover like Krishna. 

Thanks, love and regards to all.
