/Shanta nayan bishal hiya/
/Nitya paritosh/
/Taba sata barshiki aj/

Shashi Kumar, Shashi Kumar,
Shashi Kumar Ghosh —
Tranquillity-eyes, vastness-heart
Always in satisfaction-light.
Today we celebrate a hundred springs
From the core of your Eternal Life
With stupendous sound-life
And auspicious silence-soul.
In one form you are a power-worshipper
Immensely self-poised in your central being
And a compassion and affection-flooded nest,
Covering the desert-vast
And transcending the mountain-foibles
Of your feeble fellow travellers and compeers
Here on earth
