Dhana dhanya pushpa bhara, a beautiful song in Bengali was written and composed by Dwijendralal Roy

dhana dhanya pushpa bhora,
amader ei basundhara,
tahar majhe achhe desh ek
sakal desher shera,
o shey shapno diye toiree se desh
smriti diye ghera,
emon deshti kothao khunje paabe naako tumi,
o shey shokol desher raani shey je
amaar janmabhumi

Blessed with wealth, adorned with flowers
This Mother Earth of ours,
In her midst is a nation
Most famed of all nations,
Oh that nation is made of dreams
Wrapped in memories,
You won't find a nation like this anywhere
Oh she is the queen of all nations,
She who is my motherland.


Dwijendralal Ray (1863-1913) also known as D. L. Ray (Bengali: ডি. এল. রায়), was a Bengali poet, playwright, and musician. He was known for his Hindu mythological and Nationalist historical plays and songs known as Dwijendrageeti or the Songs of Dwijendralal, which number over 500, create a separate subgenre of Bengali music. Two of his most famous compositions are Dhana Dhanya Pushpa Bhara and Banga Amar Janani Amar. He is regarded as one of the most important figures in early modern Bengali literature.

The tune seems to be Yaman- based (same as Janaganamana)

Lovely rendition by Ms. Lopamudra.

Full lyrics for this is:

Dhana dhanya pushpa bhara, aamader ei bashundhara.
Taahar maajhey aachey desh ek, shokol dhesher shera –
O shey je shopno diye toiri, shey je smriti diye ghera!
Emon deshti kothao khunjey pabey nako tumi –
Shokol desher raani shey je, aamar jonmobhumi!

Shey je aamar jonmobhumi! Shey je aamar jonmobhumi!
Chandra shurjo groho taara, kothay ujol emon dhaara?
Kothay emon khaley toreet, emon kalo meghey?
O taar paakhir daakey ghumiye pori, paakhir daakey jegey!
Emon deshti kothao khunjey pabey nako tumi –
Shokol desher raani shey je, aamar jonmobhumi!
Shey je aamar jonmobhumi! Shey je aamar jonmobhumi!

Ato snigdha nadi kaahar? Kothaay emon dhumro paahar?
Kothay emon haritkshetra aakashtoley meshey?
Emon dhaaner opor dheu khele jay baatash kahaar deshey?
Emon deshti kothao khunjey pabey nako tumi –
Shokol desher raani shey je, aamar jonmobhumi!
Shey je aamar jonmobhumi! Shey je aamar jonmobhumi!

Pushpey pushpey bhora shakhi; kunjey kunjey gaahey paakhi;
Gunjariyaa aashey ari, punjey punjey dheye –
Tara phuler upor ghumiye porey phuler madhu kheye!
Emon deshti kothao khunjey pabey nako tumi –
Shokol desher raani shey je, aamar jonmobhumi!
Shey je aamar jonmobhumi! Shey je aamar jonmobhumi!

Bhai-er maa-er ato sneho kothay geley pabey keha?
O maa! Tomar charanduti bakkhey aamar dhori –
Aamar ei deshetei jonmo, jeno ei deshetei mori!
Emon deshti kothao khunjey pabey nako tumi –
Shokol desher raani shey je, aamar jonmobhumi!
Shey je aamar jonmobhumi! Shey je aamar jonmobhumi!

I found the Chaturangi guitar very impressive. The artiste Subhashish is wonderful!
