Deshabandhu (1945) — A poem in Bengali 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.
