ভালো রে ভালো English Translation - SASLI 2015

 

Please enjoy the English translation of Sukumar Ray's classic poem, ভালো রে ভালো, produced by the Elementary Bengali class at the SASLI Summer Language Program at UW-Madison. More information on the poet can be found here

Good is Good

by Sukumar Ray 

Oh brother! In my thoughts I see so far

In this world, all is good

The real is good, the false is good

The cheap is good, the costly is good

You are good, and I am good

Here, the rhythm of the song is good

Here, the flowers' scent is good

The cloud-dappled sky is good

The wave-stirring breeze is good

The summer is good, the rains are good

Dark is good, fair is good

Pulao is good, korma is good

Fried fish dolma is good

The straight is good, the winding is good

The hairy and the bald are good

The drum is good, the gong is good

Pushing the cart along is good

Rolling the bread dough is good

To hear the songs of old is good

The feel the cling of cotton is good

The cold shiver of a shower is good

But the very best of all

Is porota with peanut butter.

Words with দিন, Language structure, Bangla

There are a couple of words you can make with দিন ।

 চিরদিন- always

 সারাদিন- all day

 সব দিন- all days ( these two are very confusing)

 অনেক দিন- many days

 কয়েকদিন- a few days

 প্রতিদিন- everyday ( also রোজ )

You can add numbers with দিন , like what you do in English

একদিন -one day,  দুদিন -two days, তিন দিন - three days etc....

......................................................................................................................................................। 

Note: You don't need to add an article with numbers if you add them with দিন. 

It is not necessary unless you want to emphasise the number.

Example :      আমি             একদিনও            ছুটি             পাব            না। 

                       ( I)        ( one day even)  ( break)   ( will get)    (not).

                        I will not get even one day for break.
