Hasi Amar Dekhte Giye
Hasi amar dekhte giye pelam ami kashta
Bhalo amai karte giye haye gelam nashta
Jiban tari shunena hai kabhu amar katha
Shanta hate chahi jabe dake bachalata
Ar katokal rakhbe mago ghor samasya buke
Ei dharanir gehe bujhi raina keha sukhe
TranslationI wanted to see my happiness.
Alas, instead of seeing my happiness
What I see is all suffering.
I wanted to make myself good.
Alas, instead of making myself good
I see I have totally spoiled myself.
My life-boat, alas, never listens to me.
When I want to remain silent, alas,
Talkativeness and restlessness
Come and torture my earthly existence.
How long, Mother, will you keep me
Do You mean to say that there is
And can be nobody who is happy
Here on earth?
