Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 196

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

IF I WAS BORN BEFORE 1947

If I was born before 1947,

my way of life would be totally different-

careerism would hardly become my passion,

independence would become my primary as well as ultimate goal.

Blood for blood would never become my action-

you may call it my moral weakness.

I would walk along the way of love and peace

and at last never claim for power

but remain among the mass forever with a ‘charkha’.
