(14th January 1962 / Balarampur Village in the District of Purulia in West Bengal.)


I have remained an isolated island
and I wish to remain so

At times the doorbell rings
from some distant-world comes a telegram
So I move
mutely join thier merry celebrations
and gossip sessions
where masks roam around me
and converse with each other

I feel disconcerned and sad
sitting in the midst of the gathering
I yearn for my solitude
my lonely existence.....
