A Raid (R1)

Poem By Asit Kumar Sanyal

An Indian from Maharashtra,
Top executive of a Multi-National Company
Was having the hobby Of collecting autograph
from famous personalities.
He managed autographs from many icons
It includes cricketers, Bollywood heroes,
National & international political leaders
And much more from various fields.
Once he requested Saddam Hossain,
The President of Irak
For sending his autograph on a piece of paper
He sent it by post.

Few years passed
Saddam hanged, the chapter closed
The man was busy to get another autograph
One mid-night the intelligence personnel
Raided his house
Searched every locker, bed, shoe rack
Every inch of his residence
But did not get anything
Then they picked him up and put in lock-up
The Police Inspector said,
'We have proof, You had link
With Saddam Hossain.'

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.

I live in such a country
Where power is enjoyed by

To pay tribute and gratitude

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
