Notes: According to Prabhat Kumar Mukhopadhyay this song was written and composed in the occasion of Annaprashan of Madhurilata, the elder daughter of the poet. The program was held in the month of April 1887.

In a separate letter written to poet Mohit Chandra Sen the Rabindranath had referred to the song saying -

... I had composed a song for the Annaprashan of a girl child -

Ogo nabin atithi,
Tumi nutan ki tumi chirantan.

He had asked in the same letter to include this song in Shishu, the collection of poems for children that was due to be published.

In a separate context Shantidev Ghosh had written in Rabindra Sangeet Bichitra -

... In April 1931 a ceremony was held at the Gurupalli of Shantiniketan for naming and annaprashan of the grand daughter of prof Nepal Chandra Roy and daughter of Kalipada Roy and Kamala Roy. The child was named Kanina. For this occasion Rabindranath had remodelled this song before training Amita Sen (Khuku) for the song to be produced on request from the host.

Transliteration in English

Ohe nobin otithi, tumi  nutan ki tumi chirantan.
Juge juge kotha tumi chhile sangopan.
Jatone kato-ki aani  bnedhechhinu grihokhaani,
Hetha ke tomare balo korechhilo nimantran.
Kato aasha bhaalobasa gobhir hridayotale
Dheke rekhechhinu buke kato haasi-oshrujale.
Ekti na kohi baani  tumi ele maharaani,
Kemone gopane mone korile hey padaarpan.
