"Bahu din dhore, bahu krosh durey
Bahu byay kori, bahu desh ghurey
Dekhite giyachi porbotmala,
Dekhite giyachi Sindhu.
Dekha hoy nai chokkhu melia
Ghar hote shudhu dui pa felia
Ekti dhaner shisher upore ekti shishir bindu"

["I traveled miles, for many a year.
I spent a lot in lands afar,
I've gone to see the mountains, the oceans I've been to view.
But I haven't seen with these eyes
Just two steps from my home lies
On a sheaf of paddy grain, a glistening drop of dew"]
