Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 227

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

Work And Worship

He was coming home from Bangalore in Diwali.

He failed to come in Durga Puja

as his friend cum colleague killed one's sister

as she disclosed one's secret project to her boyfriend.

At home he never paid floral tribute to Goddess Kali

as the sacrificed goat kid was once his playmate.

Both in office and during festival he was frustrated

as he could see blood

in place of work and in place of worship.

But he could not quit his job, but his home,

so he started for south

after seeking blessing from nobody!

Never understand that he was weak.

But he was too strong

to endure others' weakness...
