Bistirno duparer oshonkho manusher
Hahakar shuneo nishobde nirobe
O Ganga tumi, Ganga boyichho keno
Noyitikotar skholon dekheo
Manobotaar poton dekheo
Nirlojjo olosh bhabe boichho keno
Gyaan bihin nirokhorer
Khaddyo bihin nagorik er
Netribihonotaaye mouno keno
Shohosro boroshar unmadonaar
Montro diye lokkho joner'yi
Shobol shongrami aar ogro gaami gore tolona keno
Srotoshhini keno nahi bow
Tumi nishchoi janhobi nou
Ta-hole prerona daona keno
Unmotto-taar durbhhedyer shoro shojjake
Alingon kora (lokhho) shohosro koti
Bharotbashike jagale na keno
Byekti jodi byekti kendrit.
Samosti jodi byektitwo rahit
Shei shithil samaj ke bhango na keno
Stretched on two shores where people live in crores
You hear their cries, still you are mum and oblivious
O Ganges you! Ganges why you flow in silence.
Even as you witness erosion of morality.
Even as you witness downfall of humanity.
Why do you still flow as lazy and shameless.
There are illiterate and obtuse millions
There are food starved civilians.
Still why you turn a blind eye and maintain silence.
Bless with hysteria of thousand rains
Bless all these masses in millions
Vigorous revolutionaries and leaders why don't you organize.
You are filled with several glories.
You are definitely not lifeless.
Then why don't you ignite inspirations.
Breaking hard fury craziness.
Embracing those sleeping on beds; .
Millions & millions of Indians; why didn't you make them conscious.
If people are egocentric
Then society is no more dynamic.
Then why don't you break such static societies.
