For Rooma Again..
Whether I see you or not
by CHOUDHURI SUKUMAR
the feeling of your proximity
keep me alive, quiet and active.
Misgivings-prone persons are always
They are always much concerned
about the legality.
When you come crossing the boundary
they stealthily check whether I am at home.
I have never cared these scandal-mongers
I have just put a seed of love
deep inside the social you.
You sprinkle water of nursing and empathy
on this seed.
You cry like a green leaf
on its striking appearance.
Frequently then you go far away
crossing the social barrier...
