সবুজ প্রকৃতি আমাদের মা

প্রকৃতির আঁচলে ভরা থাক আকাশ, বাতাস, নদী, সমুদ্র, সূর্য, চন্দ্র, তারা

ভরা থাক স্মৃতি সুধায় পরিবেশ রক্ষার সবুজ আনন্দ ধারা

সবুজ বাঁচুক, সবুজ থাকুক, সবুজ ধ্বংস করো না

পৃথিবী তোমার, আমা্ সবার

প্রকৃতি নষ্ট করো না

With the words above, Ms. Mamata Banerjee triedher had at poetry. It translates to: “The gree nature is our mother/ Letthe sky, winds, rivers, oceans, sun, moon and stars fill the nature`s embrace/Let the heady memories be filled with the happiness derived from conservationof the greenery/ Let the greens survive, let the greens stay; do not destroythe greens/ This world belongs to us all/ Do not destruct the nature.”
