I think you’ve got the gist right. I think it can be translated as – Don’t give your life to the British. Even though I think Praashadaan is not really a word. However Prasadhan is a word and its meaning won’t fit here. I’ll try and ask a linguist if I can get the meaning right.
Interesting to see that the second language to be used was Bengali.
