A Big Blunder

Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal

Insurgents came from Burma camp
Attacked bordering soldiers in Manipur
Killed eighteen
And fled to Burma again.

Assam Rifles, the guard of Manipur border
Had no clue of this incident
So tried to digest it
It was the failure of Indian intelligence
From military and civil both.

To save the face of Indian Arm Force
Army executed a surgical attack
On the rebel's camp inside Burma
Just after five days
As America attacked Laden in Pakistan.

Army believes... they killed 83 rebels
And published photographs
In social networking site as proof
And restored their Aan-Baan-shaan.

But Army did not think
It may reveal the identity of commandos
It's not only a mistake...
A big blunder.

The First Night After Marriage

It was the extreme dark as no-moon night
Continuously drizzling from long hours
Load shading was active on its routine job
The jackals were howling in bamboo clusters.

My Country

I live in such a country
Where power is enjoyed by
Rapist, Smuggler, Evil, Devil

To pay tribute and gratitude
To the teachers

I moved ahead about four decades
From my childhood love
I could not forget a single moment
And live like a loving dove.

Guess the standard of a family

Slow Poison

I tackled many drunkards
Studied them, their drinks, consumption
And the effects of alcohol
In their body
