ne me quitte pas/if you go away - Ananga Manjari Das wants YET ANOTHER TRANSLATION!

Jai Sri Radhe everyone

We're currently recovering from our 48 hour Glastonbury nam jagya kirtan so I'm typing this in a somewhat hoarse delightfully exhausted state of Guru Lila induced sweetness.

I'll get to the point:
Last year I had a go at translating the Jacques Brel song If you go away/ne me quitte pas into bangla to sing to our Guru on the last night of his england visit. Alas I only got the job half done and only did the first VIRAHA section and didn't get to the MILAN section (but if you stay...)

Would any of the linguists on this board be willing to bounce a few ideas back and forth to help me create a rendition in bengali of our feelings for him in this (I hope) sweet and quite funny way.

As this is a somewhat personal matter, in comparison to my other postings, it would be better to send me a message privatey if you would be willing to help.

Radhe Radhe

I checked the French version and it's a toughy. You want to sing in the same tune?
