চড়ুইয়ের ধুলো স্নান

আমাদের পুরানো বাড়ির ছাদে
ভাত ছড়ান থাকতো
আকাশের পাখি
গেরস্ত বেড়াল

আহ্লাদে কুকুরের জন্য—-

ছোটো ছোটো খুপ্‌রি টবে
জল ঢালতে ঢালতে
আজ মাটি থেকে উড়ান দিলো
চড়ুইয়ের ধুলস্নান।

নাহ! আজ দুপুরে লডসেদিংইয়েই স্নানে যেতে হবে।
অন্ধকার হাতড়ে বার করতে হবে
তেল,জল,তোয়ালে সাবান!
দুমগ জল ঢাল্‌বো জেই,হঠাৎ
কাঁচের জানলা খান খান
ঝকমকে রোদ্দুর
আর
চড়াইয়ের ধুলোস্নান

अरे । मैं उनके पीछे दौरा भागा किया,
एक बूँद अमृत की चाह थी,
फिर भी मैंने सागर पिया ।
फिर भी वो पूछते हैं की उनके बिन कैसे जिया ?
उनके बिन हो गया था दीवाना,
फिर कहाँ था दर्द,
जब हो चला था खुद से बेगाना ।
कितनी आहें भरी, कितनी सिसकियाँ रोइ
खुद को कैसे भी उनसे मिलने की उम्मीद दे जिन्दा बस रख लिया
फिर भी वो पूछते हैं की उनके बिन मैं कैसे जिया ?

Temptation -DOLA


I have a window
A wide, open window
That helps me see
The world in its glory
And the rhythm of life in motion
In the far distance,
Where I could never be.

But I see the serpentine road
That blurs my vision
And beckons me to wander ‘n fall
Like autumn leaves
And snowflakes
So I forget my mission.

All I ask for
Is the strength to hold on
To the dreams I had savored,
Woven with fears
In threads of gold;
Treasured in a corner
close to my heart;
Secrets I cherished
Never to be told.

Shravana Panchami , the fifth day of Shravana month of the Hindu calender, is celebrated as Naga Garuda Panchami or Nag Panchami . It is an auspicious day for the Hindus as they worship the King of snakes -the Cobra – on this day.

I have seen a lot of snakes coming around my home at my native since my childhood. Once a rat snake had come inside our house when our lady rabbit had given babies. The snake had come to eat the babies. At the right time our home maid kept the babies out of house, and the snake went out by itself, leaving everyone unharmed.

We had also made a small open aquarium in our garden. Many bull frogs had made their house inside it and many snakes also used to join them to hunt for food.

The lesson we learnt from our parents was to never harm any animal and we always felt happy when we did not harm any other creature in this world.

In the past 3-4 years, our city home also witnessed some snake visits. Once a 7-8 feet rat snake came, roamed around our portico and left by itself. Next time, a highly poisonous Viper came and slept on the wheel of my son’s cycle. At night my 3 year son was about to lift the cycle when we saw it and got alert. We gave it some time and it went out slowly. Then there came a 5 feet Rat snake on a winter day. It wanted to share our house, but our 7 year old Labrador, Soumya, never allowed it to fulfill its wish. This time I had to call a snake catcher and he took the snake to a lake.

Save Snakes. Never kill them. Allow them to go out on their own when they enter your area. Call the Snake catchers or the Forest Officers – keep their numbers handy. They will help you out and the Snakes too.
Live and Let Live!

The body belongs to the earth, you belong to the sky. The body belongs to matter, you belong to God. The body is gross, you are not. The body has limits, is born and will die; you are never born and you will never die.

A soul,
That thrived nobly,
Sang through its body,
As long as it lived,
And tread this world,
Soothing the living rest,
Making them believe,
Aparition called love,
Like life’s amaranthus,
Would carry on life,
Songs and dance of joy,
On this small planet,
Where life appears,
Uniquely well disposed,
Is the only spirit,
Having all propensity,
To carry on and on,
Forever the fragrance,
Of life, of love, of dare,
Of duty and committment,
To all those yearning for,
A modestly blissful living,
Throbs my own heart,
And soul!
