You have gone for quite a long time,
Return one day like the flood again;
Like a dry fruit of Sheerish amidst the enlivened leaves
I pass my life,
Seldom when I see at the old wall,
From the several undisciplined lines
You come out like a lady
Like the walks, flights, notes of fostered doves,
I have loved you,
And you have gone again.
Binoy Majumdar won the Sahitya Academy Award in 2005.He is the poet who revolutionized Bengali Poetry in the post-Tagore era. Binoy’s originality lay in his attempt to relate the various elements of nature to one another through objective logic and scientific enquiry. Binoy builds up all his imagery, nuances, lyricism, and poetic discovery on the skeleton of scientific reasoning and factual observations.
