Notes: This song was first published in spring, 1939.

Shailaja-ranjan Majumdar, in his book 'Jaatrapother Aanondogaan has written –

... Preparation for Barsha-mangal was on. Gurudev was eager to know how the rehearsal was going. I took the singers to Uttarayan with me and they sang six old songs to him.

The dining bell had struck, young singers went for lunch. In the meantime I approached Gurudev to say him that young students want new songs and they would not celebrate Barsha-mangal with older ones.

Gurudev was sceptical, said – 'How is it possible to write new songs within such a short time? I have several other assignments.'

He called me next day at eleven o'clock. He handed over a new song to me as I reached him. The song is – 'Ogo snaaotali chhele ...'.

I was about to return with the notation when Gurudev recalled me once again and said – 'Send this notation quickly to 'Probasi'. People of Kolkata will be able to know that when published. A number of them would come here to see the program. It would be difficult to see your back by then.'

I had sent the song to 'Probasi' along with its notation immediately. ...

Ogo snaaotaali chhele,
Shyamolo saghano nabobarosar kishor dut ki ele.
Dhaanero khetero paare    shaalero chhaayaro dhaare
Bnaashir surete sudur durete cholechho hridayo mele.
Pubdiganto dilo tabo dehe nilimolekha,
Pito dharatite orunorekha,
Keyaphulkhaani kabe tule aani
Dwaare mor rekhe gele.
Aamaro gaanero hangsobalakapnaati
Baadolo dinero tomaro monero saathi.
Jhare chanchalo tamaloboner praane
Tomate aamate miliachhi ekkhani,
Meghero chhaayay choliyachhi chhaaya phele.
