Went He To Nagaland To Work, But Returned Not Back To

Poem By Bijay Kant Dubey

A poor and simple villagerly boy,
Went he to Nagaland to work
As for the road construction
In the company of people
Moving to
But returned he not,
The poor black boy,
Just the telegram from a distant hospital
Came it,
Our deepest condolences to the family!

Oh, the poor, small and simple village boy
Who used to pull the rickshaw
Of his father,
The poor black boy,
Far and far away from Bihar
To the northeastern fringes!

And its signs and symbols,

But sometimes do they mistake
In handling cases
