Angaraag Mahanta’s – “Nilaa Aakax” lyrics

Nilaa aakax
Meghor aabax
Boroniya puhor ejaak
Ee kor pora aahi aase
Nejanu ekuke
Xosa misa

Oti sinaki
Ejaak boroxun
Naamilehi mor sotalotey
Oti sinaki
Onubhutibor
Baagor xolai mor hridoyotey

Mor monok jukai
Xei borosun jaakor dore xiu gusi jai
Bor oxohai, oxohai lage xei porotey
Bor oxohai, oxohai lage xei porotey kiyo…

Xomoy baali xonowaali
Nirobey taar soturaali
Haator phaake xoroki jai
Nuwari dhoribo
Paari janu?

Jir jir jir
Jibonto
Sonchol monor nizoraatey
Koto haa(n)hi
Xoto oshru
Uti aahey uti jai nedekhakey

Jir jir jir
Jibonto
Sonchol monor nizoraatey
Koto haa(n)hi
Xoto oshru
Uti aahey uti jai nedekhakey

Mor monaey janu buji pai
Ei obhinoy aarey aarey koney jumi sai
Bor oxohai, oxohai lage xei porotey
Bor oxohai, oxohai lage xei porotey kiyo…

Nilaa aakax
Meghor aabax
Boroniya puhor ejaak
Ee kor pora aahi aase
Nejanu ekuke
Xosa misa…

Angaraag Mahanta’s – “Jonaki Raati” – English translation

Where do I go?
Where do I go…
Where do I go…
Where do I go…

This moonlit night
Why is it here
To paint
Every melody (of this song)

This moonlit night
Why is it here

Why do your eyes
Make me weep every night?
Why does your sweet smile
Make me laugh even today?

Why do your eyes
Make me weep every night?
Why does your sweet smile
Make me laugh even today?

Why is it that tonight
These fireflies light up your photograph?
Forgetting you is something I can’t do…

Where are you today
Who is it that captures your sight today
For whom do you wait today
Whose songs do you sing today

Don’t visit my dreams now
I feel the abject terror of the thought that descends upon me

This moonlit night
Why is it here
To paint
Every melody (of this song)

This moonlit night…

Angaraag Mahanta’s – “Jonaki Raati” lyrics

Kotey Jau(n)?
Kotey Jau(n)…
Kotey Jau(n)…
Kotey Jau(n)…

Jonaki raati
Kiyo no aahi
Proti tu xurotu
Sobi aake ee

Jonaki raati
Kiyo no aahi

Tumar dusokuwe muk
Nixa kiyo konduwai?..
Tumar mitha hahi(n)tiye mok aajiu hohu(n)ai

Tumar dusokuwe muk
Nixa kiyo konduwai?..
Tumar mitha hahi(n)tiye mok aajiu hohu(n)ai

Aaji nixa jonaki poruwai
Tumar sobi kiyo ujolai
Pahoribo nuwaru moi tumak…

Kot asa tumi aaji
Kaak suwa tumi aaji
Kaar baat suwa tumi aaji
Kaar gaan guwa tumi aaji

Nahiba xopunotey etia tumi
Kiba bibhixika aahise naami

Jonaki raati
Kiyo no aahi
Proti tu xurotu
Sobi aake ee

Jonaki raati…
