A Poem In Bengali

Deshabandhu (1945)1

Bhalobesechhile bharat matare
 /Banga desher bir/
Nishwa haile bharatbasir
 /Muchite nayan nir/
Pratipade badha daliya charane
 /Vijayir beshe ese/
Pranam karecho bir prasabini
 /Janani bangla deshe/
Britisher kara tomar sparshe
 /Hayeche tirthabhumi/
Swadesh mantre dikkshita haye
 /Tomar charane chumi/
Sardul sama tomare manito
 /British shasak dal/
Tumi ene dite arter buke
 /Nitya nutan bal/
Himaloy jabe haran karilo
 /Deshabandhur pran/
Nakkshatra je nimne namilo
 /Kare kabi anuman/
Eman shoker banya kakhano
 /Nameni moder deshe/
Shatru mitra kendechilo sabe
 /Tomarei bhalobese/


  1. DBF 6. Deshabandhu. In 1945, when Sri Chinmoy was thirteen years old, he wrote a poem in Bengali about Chitta Ranjan Das. It was entitled “Deshabandhu.” In Sri Chinmoy’s handwritten notebook, which still survives, the singer of the highest magnitude and extremely close disciple of Sri Aurobindo, Dilip Kumar Roy, has made two minor corrections to this particular poem. He also read about two hundred of the then Chinmoy’s Bengali poems, made necessary corrections and highly appreciated the talents of the budding poet.

Sri Chinmoy, Deshabandhu: Bengal’s beloved friend.First published by Agni Press in 2000.

This is the 1346th book that Sri Chinmoy has written since he came to the West, in 1964.
