Hasi amar dekhte giye pelam ami kashta Bhalo amai karte giye haye gelam nashta Jiban tari shunena hai kabhu amar katha Shanta hate chahi jabe dake bachalata Ar katokal rakhbe mago ghor samasya buke Ei dharanir gehe bujhi raina keha sukhe
I wanted to see my happiness. Alas, instead of seeing my happiness What I see is all suffering. I wanted to make myself good. Alas, instead of making myself good I see I have totally spoiled myself. My life-boat, alas, never listens to me. When I want to remain silent, alas, Talkativeness and restlessness Come and torture my earthly existence. How long, Mother, will you keep me In problem-worlds? Do You mean to say that there is And can be nobody who is happy Here on earth?
