Notes: The poet in a chat with Rani Chanda had expressed his feelings about this song. This conversation is published in the sixth chapter of her book Gurudev.

Natun Bouthaan passed away - it was inexpressible twitching in the heart. I used to stroll around on the top of my apartment till late in the night murmuring at the sky - 'Where are you Natun Bouthaan, please show me up for once'. I used to sing this song very often. This happens to be my song of choice.

Aamar praaner pore chole gelo ke
Basanter baataastukur mato.

It seems funny that the age of a person who has died does not increase any more. My Natun Bouthaan - she had been a young girl since then. But look at me - I have grown considerably aged, drooping.

A drama was written jointly by Rabindranath, Jyotirindra Tagore and Akshay Chowdhury with a name Bibaha-utsav having seven scenes and forty five songs. Twenty eight of which were written by Rabindranath. This song too was included in it. The songs had association with the marriage of Hiranmoyee Devi, daughter of Swarnakumari Devi and Phanindranath Mukhopadhyay.

Transliteration in English

Aamar praaner pare chole galo ke
Basanter batastukur moto
Se je chuya galo nuye galo re
Phool phutiye galo sato sato
Se chole galo bale galo na
Se kothai galo phire alo na
Se jete jete chaye galo ki jano gaye galo
Tai apan mone base achi kusum banete
Se dhauer mato bhase gache chader alor deshe gache
Jakhan diye hase gache hasi tar rekhe gache re
Mone holo aakir kone amai jano deke gache se
Ami kothai jabo kothai jabo bhabitechi tai akla bose
Se chader chokhe bulia galo ghumer ghor
Se praner kothai dulia galo phooler dor
Kusum baner upar diye ki katha se bale galo
Phooler gandho pagal hoye sange taree chole galo
Hridoy amar akul holo
Nayan amar mude alo re
Kotha diye kothai galo se
