                                         Brought up in Kolkata, India
















                  A day of days comes such a way
                  As if a jockey's bending his body on a naughty horse,
                  Before the blinking of eyes 24 hours are over
                  A day of days comes even such a way
                  As if a snail crawls with its tired body
                  A day of days comes such a way
                  As if it's the very gape of a gluttonous monster
                  Whose uvula is visible,deeply red,
                  Nightmares are pacing up and down
                  A day of days comes even such a way

                  Like cooling water-melon in hot summer noon,
                  While biting,it seems as it were
                  God's standing just a hand apart
                  A day of days comes such a way
                  When words,like the tiny fishes in herds
                  Glitter in the midst of poems
                  A day of days comes even such a way
                  When there's no word in the fingers,
                  Just like the smoke of burning dry leaves
                  It vanishes in the ether in circles
