Sudhira Basu, Nandalal Basu’s wife, has written in her memoire ‘Mohilader Smritite Rabindranath’ –

… it was a moonlit night, a few students traded across the Nepal road singing Gurudev’s new song ‘Chnaader haasir bnaadh bhengechhe …’. It must be a mistake somewhere or the tune may have deviated a little, Rabindranath started singing the song, open-throated, from the top of Dehali. His voice echoed all over the Ashram. As if the air of Shantiniketan started singing along. Everyone busy with errands had stalled. Voice of a single individual filled the air. … It was a stoke of luck that evening to listen to the mesmerizing voice of Gurudev accompanied by moon-light, at least for the error the boys had made. …

Transliteration in English

Chnaader haasir bnaadh bhengechhe, uchhle pare aalo.
O rajonigandha, tomar gandhosudha dhaalo.
Paagol haawa bujte naare    daak porechhe kothay taare -
Phuler bone jaar paashe jaay taarei laage bhaalo.
Nil gagoner lalatkhaani chandane aaj maakha,
Baaniboner hangsomithun melechhe aaj paakha.
Paarijater keshor niye    dharay, shoshi, chharao ki e.
Indropurir kon ramoni baasorprodip jwaalo.
