Tribute to Papiya Ghosh
by Gona Pragasen Kathan Naicker
Bookmark and Share
  Our paths have never crossed
our lives separated
by the vastness
of the ocean
you and I
born of the same mother
struggled for life
from the same womb
yet unknown to each other
They killed you
plunged their knives
into your fragile body
like Brutus hath done to Caesar
for their evil knew no bounds
their infernal deeds
blinded by their greed
your death ridiculed
by fortified walls of conspiracy
justice buried with
the sins of silence

You Papiya Ghosh
a fragile pious soul
personifying the divine Saraswati
embodiment of sublime virtues
gifted intellect
writer, teacher , historian
an intellectual light
to liberate our minds
born from the same mother
that cradles in her arms
the mighty Himalayas

In life you bore no malice
you harbored no ill will
in death you seek not revenge
nor retribution
for that would blemish your
life long works of compassion

If truth be sacrosanct
and justice be inviolable
for all of mother India's children
then we must in her name
uphold those sacred tenets
without fear
so that your death
will become a beacon
that strengthens our resolve
never to go down
begging on bended knees
for the return of righteousness.
