He was not alone that day,

He had friends with him.

While they smoked, they played cards!

Together they ate, cheered and drank.

The evening bells chime from a far distance.

They took a boat and sailed high in the tidal river.

Oiled lanterns twinkled on the deck.

They sang in a chorus!

“Amar Shonar Bangla, Ami Tomai Valobashi!”

They hold their hands tight.

They danced the whole night.

They said to each other: “How happy we were there!”

They realised the partition was a grave mistake.
