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.
