Pathe jakhan chali Shyama Tui je chalis sathe sathePrati kajer phanke phanke Ma tor parash mile dinerateTabu bhabi shyama bujhi Amai cherecheKandar mato kandina tai Dure rekheche
Mother Kali, when I walk along the streetI see You accompanying me. At the interval of each new undertaking I feel Your gracious presence. All day and night Your presence envelops me, Yet I know not why I feel You have deserted me. Is it because I do not cry soulfully That I feel You are away from me?
