Poem: Mind’s Remote Part

By: Binoy Mazumdar
Translated by: Kousik Adhikari


Mind’s remote part, greedy,
Eternal receiver,
I watch only the blanks, bringing
Different warmth,
Various winds create the cloudy wave
In the remote sky,
I think and feel so greedy,
After the love.
Remote winds of ocean
Where do you rush with this warmth?
Whenever I cry,
Wounded by eternal blows
Everyone thinks
Hunger incites me
Like the children,
They do not understand
The tales of pain.


Binoy Mazumdar has penned the poem originally in Bengali. This has been taken from Binoy Majumdarer Sreshta Kabita (Selected Poems of Binoy Majumdar) published by Dey’s Publishing Kolkata 1981.
