A Positive Sign

Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal

Everybody knows
Bickering and quarrelling is a
South Asian disease
And it rendered this region
Least economically integrated
But India and Bangladesh bucked it
Signed a bunch of agreements
To settle land border problem,
Maritime boundary issues
And the citizenship rights
On enclave residents.
Besides those main issues...
They agreed to restore the connectivity
Between the two countries,
The transit through Bangladesh
Will help India
Bringing its North-East closer
And fighting the insurgency in better way
Indian ships will offload cargo
At Chittagong and Mongla
In place of Singapore
The port authority will earn
millions of dollar
If other closed-doors open gradually
One day Bangladesh will be
The land bridge in South-East Asia
And the moribund economy
of seven sisters
Can be revitalized.

Between the two countries; with the muse of the earth. Nice work.
