Bengali Translation of the poem Sea Fever by John Masefield with Bengali explanation। বাংলায় Sea Fever by John Masefield কবিতার ব্যাখ্যা।

 Sea Fever

John Masefield

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;

And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,

And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

আমি অবশ্যই আবার সমুদ্রে যাব, সেই নির্জন সমুদ্রে খোলা আকাশের তলে

এবং আমার যা দরকার সেটি হল একটি লম্বা জাহাজ এবং একটি তারা যেটি আমার জাহাজ কে চালাতে সাহায্য করবে

এবং আমার দরকার ঢেউয়ের ধাক্কা এবং বাতাসের গান এবং সাদা পালের কম্পন

এবং আমার প্রয়োজন সমুদ্রের বক্ষের ওপর ধূসর কুয়াশা এবং ধূসর রঙের সকালের শুরু

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide

Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,

And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

 আমি অবশ্যই আবার সমুদ্রে যাব ওই চলমান ঢেউয়ের ডাকে

যে ডাকটি হল বন্য এবং পরিষ্কার ডাক যেটিকে কোনোভাবেই এড়িয়ে যাওয়া যায় না

এবং আমার দরকার একটি বাতাস বহুল দিন এবং সঙ্গে আকাশে ভাসমান সাদা মেঘ

এবং জলের বিন্দু আকারে ছড়িয়ে পড়া এবং ভাসমান ফেনা এবং শঙ্খচিলের ডাক

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,

To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;

And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,

And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

আমি অবশ্যই আবার সমুদ্রে যাবো ওই ভবঘুরে যাযাবর দের মত জীবন পেতে

আমি যাব ওই শঙ্খচিলের পথে এবং ওই তিমি মাছদের পথে যেখানে বাতাস তীক্ষ্ণ ছুরির মতো বয়ে যায়

এবং আমার দরকার হাস্যরত সহ নাবিকের মুখ থেকে শোনা আনন্দের গল্প

এবং আমার দরকার শান্তিতে ঘুম এবং মধুর স্বপ্ন যখন এই দীর্ঘযাত্রা শেষ হবে।

বিষয়বস্তুঃ এই কবিতাতে কবি জন মেসফিল্ড তার সমুদ্রে যাওয়ার তীব্র ইচ্ছা কে প্রকাশ করেছেন। সমুদ্রের প্রতি তার ভালবাসা, সমুদ্র যাত্রা করার প্রতি তার আকাঙ্ক্ষা এই সমস্ত কিছুই কবি এই কবিতার মধ্যে ব্যক্ত করেছেন। 

এই কবিতাতে কবি তার সমুদ্রযাত্রার জন্য কতগুলো দাবি রেখেছেন। তিনি সমুদ্রে যাত্রা করার জন্য চেয়েছেন একটি দীর্ঘ জাহাজ। তিনি চেয়েছেন তার যাত্রা করার সময় রাত্রে আকাশে যেন ধ্রুবতারা থাকে যেটি তার চলার পথকে নির্দেশ করবে। তিনি চেয়েছেন বাতাস যুক্ত দিন যাতে ঢেউয়ের ধাক্কায় তিনি দ্রুত জাহাজ নিয়ে এগিয়ে যেতে পারেন। তিনি আরো চেয়েছেন যেন সমুদ্রের বক্ষে যখন সকাল হবে সেই সময় যেন সমুদ্রের বক্ষ ধূসর কুয়াশায় ঢাকা থাকে। 

কবি বলছেন তিনি সমুদ্রে যাবেনই কারণ সমুদ্রের ওই চলমান ঢেউ তাকে ডাকছে। সমুদ্রের ওই ঢেউ এর ডাক একদিকে যেমন বন্য অন্যদিকে তেমন পরিষ্কার তাই তিনি ওই ডাক কোনভাবে অস্বীকার করতে পারছেন না। তিনি আরো চাইছেন তার যাত্রা পথের সময় যেন আকাশে সাদা মেঘ ভেসে বেড়ায় এবং চারিদিকে যেন সাদা ফেনার সমারহ ঘটে। তাকে মনোরঞ্জন দেওয়ার জন্য যেন চারিদিকে শঙ্খচিল ডেকে বেড়ায়।

কবি চাইছেন সমুদ্রে যেতে কারণ তিনি জানেন সমুদ্রের জীবন লক্ষহীন ভবঘুরে যাযাবর দের জীবনের মত। তিনি যেতে চান সেই পথেই যে পথে শঙ্খচিল যায় যে পথ দিয়ে তিমি মাছরা যায় এবং যে পথে বাতাসের গতি প্রবল তীক্ষ্ণ থাকে। অবশেষে তিনি চাইছেন এমন একটি জাহাজে যেতে যে জাহাজের সহনাবিক তাকে আনন্দের গল্প শোনাবে এবং যাত্রাপথের শেষে যেন তার একটা মধুর স্বপ্ন যুক্ত শান্তির ঘুম আসে।

Bengali Translation of the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Robert Frost

তুষারাবৃত সন্ধায় বন ভূমিতে দাঁড়িয়ে
রবার্ট ফ্রস্ট

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

কার বন এই গুলো, আমার মনে হয় আমি চিনি।
তার বাড়ি হয় গ্রামে যদিও;
তবুও সে দেখতে পাবে না আমায় দাঁড়িয়ে আছি এখানে
দেখার জন্য তার বন যা ভরে আছে তুষারে।

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

আমার ছোট্ট (প্রিয়) ঘোড়া টি অবশ্যই এটি কে অদ্ভুত ভাবছে
দাঁড়িয়ে পরাটাকে ধারে কাছে কোন খামার বাড়ি ছাড়া
বন এবং বরফে ঢাকা হ্রদের মাঝ খানে
বছরের সব থেকে অন্ধকারময় সন্ধায়।।

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

সে দিলো তার গলার ঘণ্টা কে একটা ঝাঁকুনি
জানতে চাওয়ার জন্য কোন ভুল হয়েছে কিনা।
এছাড়া অন্য শব্দ গুলি হল বয়ে যাওয়া
মৃদুবন্ত বাতাস এবং পতিত তুষারে।।

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

বন গুলি হল সুন্দর, অন্ধকার এবং গভীর,
কিন্তু আমার প্রতিশ্রুতি গুলো রাখতেই হবে,
এবং যেতে হবে অনেক মাইল ঘুমোবার আগে,
এবং যেতে হবে অনেক মাইল ঘুমোবার আগে ।।

Bengali Translation and Summary of the poem The Snail by William Cowper. বাংলায় The Snail কবিতার অর্থ ও ব্যাখ্যা। Class X (WBBSE)

The Snail
William cowper(1731-1800)

To grass, or leaf, or fruit, or wall,
The snail sticks close, nor fears to fall,
As if he grew there, house and all

ঘাসে, পাতায়, ফলে অথবা দেওয়ালে,
শামুক নিজেকে আসতে-পিষ্টে আটকে রাখে, এর পড়ে যাওয়ার কোন ভয় নেই
যেন মনে হয় সে সেখানেই বড় হয়েছে, ঘর এবং সবকিছু একসাথে নিয়ে।

Within that house secure he hides,
When danger imminent betides
Of storm, or other harm besides
Of weather.

ওই বাড়ির মধ্যে সে লুকিয়ে থাকে নিরাপদে
যখন আসন্ন বিপদ ঘটে
যেমন ঝড় বা আবহাওয়ার পাশাপাশি অন্যান্য ক্ষতিকর বিপদ।

Give but his horns the slightest touch,
His self-collecting power is such,
He shrinks into his house, with much

তার শুড়-এ সামান্য স্পর্শ করলেই
তার অনুভূতি গ্রহণ করার ক্ষমতা এত বেশি যে
সে তার ঘরের মধ্যে গুটিয়ে ঢুকে পড়ে খুব বিতৃষ্ণার সাথে।

Where'er he dwells, he dwells alone,
Except himself has chattels none,
Well satisfied to be his own
Whole treasure.

যেখানেই সে থাকে সে একা থাকে
নিজেকে ছাড়া তার নিজস্ব কোন সম্পত্তি নেই
সে নিজেই নিজের সম্পত্তি হওয়াতে সন্তুষ্ট।

Thus, hermit-like, his life he leads,
Nor partner of his banquet needs,
And if he meets one, only feeds
The faster.

এইভাবে একজন সাধুর মতো সে তার জীবন কাটায়
খাবার খাওয়ার সময়ও তার কোন সঙ্গীর দরকার হয় না
আর যদি খাবার খাওয়ার সময় তার সাথে কারোর দেখা হয়ে যায় তখন সে দ্রুত খেতে শুরু করে।

Who seeks him must be worse than blind,
(He and his house are so combin'd)
If, finding it, he fails to find
Its master.

এমন প্রাণীকে যে চাইবে সে অন্ধের থেকেও খারাপ হবে
সে এবং তার বাড়ি এতটাই একসাথে যুক্ত
যে তার বাড়িটিকে দেখা গেলেও তার বাড়ির মালিক কে খুঁজে পাওয়া যায় না।

বিষয়বস্তুঃ William Cowper er লেখা থে Snail কবিতাটি আমাদেরকে নিয়ে যায় শামুকের নিজস্ব জগতে। এই কবিতার মধ্যে আমরা দেখতে পাই শামুকের বাসস্থান, সেখানে সে কিভাবে থাকে এবং সে কিভাবে নিজেকে বিপদ থেকে দূরে রাখে।

কবিতার একদম শুরুতেই আমরা দেখতে পাই একটি শামুক যত্রতত্র নিজেকে ঝুলিয়ে রাখে। সে নিজেকে ঘাস পাতা বাড়ির দেওয়াল প্রভৃতি জায়গায় আটকে রাখে এবং সে এমন ভাবে নিজেকে আটকে রাখে দেখে মনে হয় যেন তার পড়ে যাওয়ার কোন ভয় নেই। আমরা দেখতে পাই কোন বিপদ এগিয়ে এলেই বা কেউ যদি তার শুড় কে একটু ছুঁয়ে দেয়, সঙ্গে সঙ্গে সে নিজের ঘরে গুটিয়ে ঢুকে পড়ে। এতে শামুক খুব বিরক্ত ও হয়।

এছাড়াও আমরা এই কবিতায় দেখতে পাই শামুকের কোন সম্পত্তি নেই। সে নিজেই নিজের সম্পত্তি। এতেই সে খুশি। শামুকের কোন সঙ্গী ও নেই। সে একা থাকতে ভালোবাসে। একা খেতে ভালোবাসে। তার খাওয়ার সময় ভুল করে যদি কেউ চলে আসে, সঙ্গে সঙ্গে সে দ্রুত খাবারটি শেষ করে ফেলে। তাই কবি শামুককে একটি সাধুর সাথে তুলনা করেছেন যেই সাধুরা সাধারণত নির্জনে সংসার ত্যাগ করে একা একা জীবন যাপন করেন।

কবিতার একদম শেষে কবি বলেছেন যে এই শামুককে পছন্দ করবে সে মানুষটি অন্ধের থেকেও খারাপ। শামুকের বাইরের খোলসটিকে শামুকের ঘরের সাথে তুলনা করা হয়েছে। শামুক এবং তার ঘর এতটাই কাছাকাছি অবস্থান করে যে তাদেরকে পৃথক করা যায় না।

Subject: Request for running a Cleaning Programme in our Locality

Respected Sir/Madam,

                 I, Madan Ghosh, a resident of Nrisinghapur, Santipur, am writing this letter on behalf of the residents of our locality. We are facing an issue of unhygienic environment in our locality. There is a lot of garbage and debris piled up in the street corners and on the roads, which is not only unpleasant to look at but also a major health hazard. Those garbage have become the breeding place of flies and mosquitoes. We cannot walk in our locality freely. Many diseases have already broken out in our locality.

We have made several attempts to remove the garbage but it is not enough. We are now requesting you to run a cleaning programme in our locality. This would help us to keep our locality clean and free of any health hazards.

We would be very grateful if you could please arrange for the cleaning programme in our locality. (We understand that it is not an easy task and would require a lot of resources. However, we assure you that we would do our part in making the programme a success.) We look forward to your kind understanding and immediate action in this regard.

Thank you.

Your Sincerely,
Madan Ghosh



Paddy, or rice, is an important staple crop in many countries around the world, including India. The cultivation of this crop requires careful management and attention. To begin, the land is prepared for planting. This involves plowing the land, removing weeds, and then leveling it with a harrow. Once the land is ready, the paddy saplings are planted in lines. It is usually sown by hand in the soil. Then, water is added to the soil using pumps. The soil must also be kept moist and nutrients must be added to the soil in forms of fertilizers or by applying organic compost. Then pest control method is applied to protect the paddy field from pests. Finally, the paddy is harvested when it is ripe.
