Suddenly one day Gurudev's voice got choked due to cold.One of the main attractions in the program was recitation by himself. To have it corrected Gurudev started taking indigenious ayurvedic medicines.He forced others too to take them, so that othres did not fall ill. Amid chaos he penned this song and taught that to Dinendranath and others despite his choked voice.

Transliteration in English

Aamar kantho hote gan ke nilo bhulaye
Se ja basa badhe nirab maner kulaye
Megher dine shrabon maser juthibaner dirghasashe
Amarprane se dai pakher chaya bulaye
Jakhan sarat kaape seuliphuler harase
Nayan bhore ja sei gopan ganer paroshe
Gabhir rate ki lagai adhoghume adhogajai,
Aar swapanmajhe dai ja ki dol dulay
