Remembering Papiya Ghosh
by Dr. Amitabh Mitra
Bookmark and Share
  The ruddy earth had rained
unflinching plague on a land
fertility is an abhorred word here
guns plough and saplings search for
shame in slighted congruency
knives enucleated the eye
of a stranger democracy long back
while Prakash Jha filmed
its ever growing carcasses, birds
sutured lips
money nurtures in stale blood
there is a buzzing of flies from
vendettas emetic of a slaughter season
chat puja every year cajoles
to wounds maimed
and dried hard dung cakes
the giggling brahmin tries pouring Ganges water
Papiya Ghosh believed in Bihar
instead
a sky masquerading a poem
incised her mind
and reason
on Third December
Two Thousand and Six.
