Who am I?
by Arup Ganguly
Bookmark and Share
 

Lost to myself as I walk by
A question dawned upon me…who am I?
Sahana tells me though a Bengalee
Probashee you are
I know that is a definite part of me
Feel connected to all that is Bengalee
Near and far
With all the hilsas and chingris
That we devour
Durga Puja, Poush Mela, Kali Puja, Poila Boisakh
I couldn’t have probably asked for more
With a barren piece of Rocky Land
Broken with loud sounds of dynamite
To give shape to what we call C.R. Park
With no traces of Aravalli ranges at sight
My father chose this place
To make his permanent home
With blessings of Goddess Kali at Shiv Mandir
Safely ensconced under the terracotta temple dome
The songs, the dramas, the books in the libraries
Finding time for these little luxuries
Luxury…is It? Or is it the DNA --
The existential compulsion that has defined
My life to this day.
