Diner Alo Dakena Jare

Diner alo dakena jare
Ratri kalo tarei chai
Satya jare deina dhara
Mithya shudhu tarei pai


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.
