For Your Last Judgment
by Kumud Biswas
Bookmark and Share
 
At the portals of your royal court
For your last judgment I wait.
In life’s transactions
Are only tears my due
This I want to know.
None else but you know
What are my dues and what I owe
But there are folks who threaten me with decrees.
 
Again and again paying tolls 
I have crossed and re-crossed the stream
Now I have come empty handed
To my last ferry crossing
This time to pay the tolls
I have no dues from anyone
Now I have to drift on a fathomless stream
Full of danger and ruin.
 
Transcreation of the song Tomar shesh bicharer ashay ami bose achhi/raj kachharir deurite he by the famous Bengali novelist Tarasankar Bandopadhyay. This moving song was written specially for the award-winning movie Dak Harkara (The Postman) based on his own short story of the same name. It was sung by the legendary artist Manna Dey.
