“Since…”

Since

My Crawling days

My thirst

To become closer to you

Has increased.

 

Since

My school days

My love

To become your shadow

Has expanded.

 

Since

My career days

My regard

To Understand the meaning of time

Has escalated.

 

Since

My Motherhood days

My worship

Towards You

Has taken leap.

 

Because

You are an angel.

My Positivity.

My Guide

My Unbreakable Bond

My Teacher

My Mother.

 

 “The Marks”

When I see the marks …

 

The permanent marks…

The permanent burn marks…

 

On my fingers

On my arms

On my wrists

On my breasts

On my thighs

On my toes

 

On my soul

 

I calculate the weightage …

Physical

Is equal

To mental

Is equal

To Spiritual …

 

That is,

I gather the rhymes and rhythm

Of life

 

And

I become more powerful!!

 

“No Optical Illusion”

I am a little girl

In my mother’s womb

 

I laugh

Ismile

I chirp

 

But,

Sometimes

I sob,

Sob

And

Hear

My Mother Sob

For hours…

 

My Romance with Kolkata

Fondly remember all,

The waiting,

The believing,

The packing,

The shopping,

The excitement of Summer,

The essentials of Vacation,

The meaning of joy,

The Kolkata nostalgia!!

 

The spread of Howrah bridge,

The jam trams,

The handpulled rickshaws,

Or

The Sardarji driven yellow cabs…

The narrow gullies,

or

The archetypal interiors,

My joy,

The city of Joy!!

 

The openness,

The straight-forwardness,

The leisurely chat in “rock”s

Over Cricket, Football, Carrom…

The adda culture,

Or

The kolkata Pustak Mela.

The soaking voice of Rabindra sangeet,

Or The revolutionary Nazrul geeti…

The tradition of Jatra,

The Roshogolla,

The Mishti doi,

The Sandesh

Or

The Durgotsav…

My sentiments with Kolkata

My romance with Kolkata

 

Is my diaspora!
