Notation by: Kangalicharan Sen / Dinendranath Tagore

Notes: Published in spring 1887.

This song was composed for Maghotsava celebration and it was sung by the poet himself on 11th Magh morning in a gathering. It finds special mention in his 'Jibonsmriti' as it was involved in a glorious event for a young man of twenty six.

... One day having listened to two of my poems from Srikanttha-babu my father had a grin on his face. I was able to take a sweet revenge of that indent later when I am a little grown up. I wish to refer to that incident.

Once I had composed quite a few songs in the morning and afternoon on the occasion of Maghotsava. The song 'Nayon tomare paay naa dekhite' was one of them. My father was in Chuchura. Summon was sent to my elder brother Jyoti-dada and me. I was asked to sing all those songs one after another while Jyoti-dada was in harmonium. I had to repeat some of them.

'If the king of our country had enough knowledge on our language and could respect our literature, they would have surely awarded the poet,' he remarked after I was done with my songs. '

Because there is no scope for that, I would like to take up the responsibility'.

He took out a cheque of five hundred rupees after saying so and handed over to me.

Transliteration in English

Nayono tomare paye na dekhite, royecho nayone nahone. (nayoner nayon !)
Hridoy tomar pai na janite, hridoy royecho gopone. (hridoybihari!)
Basonar base mon abirato dhai das dishe pagoler mato
Sthir aakhi tumi marome satoto jagicho sayone swapone.  
(Tomar biram naai, tumi obiram jaagichho shoyone swapone.
  Tomar nimesh naai, tumi onimesh jaagichho shoyone swapone.)
Sabai chereche nai jar keho, tumi acho tar ache tabo sneho  
Nirashroi jan, path jar geho, seo ache tabo bhabone 
(Je pother bhikhari seo aachhe tabo bhabone.
  Jaar keho kothao naai seo aachhe tabo bhabone.)
Tumi chara keho sathi nai ar, somukhe ananto jibonbistar 
Kalparabar karitecho par keho nahi jane kemone  
(Tori bohe niye jaao keho naahi jaane kemone.
  Jibontori tori bohe niye jaao keho naahi jaane kemone.)
Jani sudhu tumi acho tai achi, tumi pranomoy tai ami bachi
Jato pai tomai aro tato jachi, jato jani tato jani ne  
(Jene shesh mele na – mon haar mane hey.)
Jani ami tomai pabo nirostar loklokantare jugjugantan  
Tumi ar ami majhe keho nai, kono badha nai bhubane
(Tomar aamar maajhe kono baadha nai bhubone.)
