Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 119


The ‘Father of Nation’ and ‘Patriot of Patriots’

are the sun and moon of the vast Indian sky-

the history of her freedom struggle.

The non-violent army broke into pieces

the exploitations of Raj making the latter inactive,

while the violent one destroyed the exploiters.

Though the British left us due to shortage of manpower,

sacrifices of the sun and moon

will enlighten our day and night sky

with golden and silver beams forever

across India’s space and time.

I have placed them at the temple-

I will adore them throughout my life

with the innocence of my heart, generosity of my mind,

control of my senses, purity of my body,

flowers of truth and hymns of duty.
