National anthem of Bangladesh

Rabindranath Tagore

Amar shonar Bangla,

Ami tomae bhalobashi.

Chirodin tomar akash,

Tomar batash,

Amar prane

Bajae bashi.

O ma, phagune tor amer bone

Ghrane pagol kore,

Mori hae, hae re,

O ma, oghrane tor bhora khete

Ami ki dekhechhi modhur hashi.

Ki shobha, ki chaya go,

Ki sneho, ki maya go,

Ki 達chol bichhaeechho

Boter mule,

Nodir kule kule!

Ma, tor mukher bani

Amar kane lage shudhar moto,

Mori hae, hae re,

Ma, tor bodonkhani molin hole,

Ami noyon ami noyonjole bhashi.
