Alpa Kathar Manush Ami

Alpa kathar manush ami

Alpa katha koy

Beshi katha balte amar

Prane kare bhoy

Beshi kathar sathe thake

Mithya parichoy

Taito ami alpa katha koy


I am a man of few words.

I speak very little.

When I talk much,

Fear captures my heart.

When I speak too much,

Utter falsehood becomes my name.

Therefore, I am a man of few words.
