Ekla Cholo Re: Lyrics, Translation (Amitabh Bachchan/ Kahani)

Amitabh Bachchan's Hindi/Bengali version of Ekla Cholo re, with English Translation

Jodi tor dak sune keu na ashe,
Tobe ekla cholo, ekla chalo, aekla chalo re,
Aikla cholo re,

If no one answers your call,
Then walk alone,
(be not afraid) walk alone my friend.

Jodi kue kotha na koe,
ore o re o obaghaga, keu kotha na koe
Jodi sobai thake muhk phirae , sobai kore bhoye,
Tobe poran khule,
O tui, mukh phute tor moner kotha,
Ekla bolo re

If no one talks to you,
O my unlucky friend, if no one speaks to you,
If everyone looks the other way and everyone is afraid,
Then bare your soul and let out what is in your mind,
(be not afraid) Speak alone my friend.

Jab kali ghata chaye,
Ore o re o andhera sach ko nigal jaye
Jab duniya sari, dar ke age sar apna jhukaye,
Tu shola banja, Wo shola banja, Jo khud jal ke jahan raushan karde,
Ekla jalo re.

When dark clouds cover the sky, When darkness engulfs the truth,
When the world cowers and bows before fear,
You be the flame, The flame that burns you and banishes darkness from the world,
(be not afraid) Burn alone my friend.

koti koti naman Tagore Shahab ko
ye kavita likhne ke liye,
vishal aur shekhar sahab ko,
itna achha sangit dene ke liye
aur Amit ji ko itne sukun bhari awaj me gane ke liye

Mr.Bachchan was rejected by all india radio for the post of news reader. How could they??? His voice is absolutely sensational.Instead it seems like the God's voice. Such a beautiful & motivational song.Mesmeric lyrics & music. Hats off to Mr. Bachchan. Please keep singing more often such songs for your fans.........SIR

It's a mixture. But mostly in Bengali. Only a few lines are in Hindi.

Learn how to make a website translation-friendly, and you will increase web traffic.Learning French by hearing songs and stories is a great way to make the correct pronunciations stick Human translation. Songs have a way of working themselves into our heads and, because the lyrics have a context, they’re much easier to remember.
