Shakti Chattopadhyay in translation: No one calls me quite like this

“No one calls me quite like you, no one draws me quite like this
I feel pollen rain from the peaks
And perfume wash my face, my soul
No one calls me quite like you, no one draws me quite like this”

Shakti Chattopadhyay, No one calls me quite like this
(Translation, mine)
