I am defeated by taking one bate with the time,
In vain desire, when rain pours on the earth in dream,
Sky feels mirrored,
I quickly see, mosquitoes are born;
On a fresh morning
I wake to see;
Tastes, pleasures of food in our mouth
Create history, being rotten.
Pleasure gradually becomes pain.
Flashing light of blue stone of my ring
Remains unheated, extinguished,
Burns swiftly like the thirst,
I feel scared,
One day I shall be lost
Like the feathers.
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.
