Diner Alo Dakena Jare

Diner alo dakena jare

Ratri kalo tarei chai

Satya jare deina dhara

Mithya shudhu tarei pai


Translation

Darkness-night invites him

Precisely because the light of day

Does not need him,

Does not want him,

Does not call him.

Falsehood invites him,

Welcomes him,

Inundates him,

For he is not needed

By the Truth-Light.
