    You are absolutely amazing! Are you fluent in Bengali? It's such a beautiful language. I've always wanted to write a song in the language. And it's written so beautifully.
    This translation is perfect for what I want to convey. :D
    Thank you so much Sayan!

    নাগদেবের সম্মুখে আমি প্রণত

    Forget the last one. This one's just perfect. It uses the participle form of the Bengali equivalent of "bow" instead of simple present. But the meaning is much closer to what you intended. Plus it has a much more archaic sound.

    The Bengali of "To the serpent I bow" that your friends gave you is grammatically incorrect. It literally means-

    "I from snake bent down it will be."


    So I decided to do my own translation. This is what I came up with-

    নাগদেবতাকে আমি প্রণাম জানাই

    There isn't anything in Bengali with the same meaning and feeling as "Serpent". What your friends used simply means snake, the common noun. I substituted that with নাগদেবতা. It is a personification of snake, where a snake is treated as a deity (not as divine as god, more like something to be awed and feared). "I bow" was translated to "প্রণাম জানাই" meaning "I bow down and greet". What your friends did was "I put my head down".

    Tell me if you want any changes to be made.

    I got it from my friend, so I don't know if they used a translator or not. ;;
    But, I would be happy to. "To the serpent, I bow" I was thinking of changing it to
    "Princess of the Cobras"

    Uh, please don't mind, but your Bengali text is a little messed up grammatically. If you can tell me what you wanted to write (in English), I can translate that in Bengali.

    Don't take it personally though! I'm just a bit excited to see someone use Bengali text, so I wanted to perfect it.

    Hello, Nagaraja. AFAIK, Nagaraja means King of Snakes in Sanskrit. And your custom user title - that's Bengali text, right?

    So, do you have any connections with the Indian subcontinent?
