Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 82

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


A middle-class Muslim man

loved and married the daughter

of a rich Hindu industrialist,

who accepted this relation never.

Brutal steps were taken to nip this into bud-

from police assault to goons’ attack.

A few days later the man’s deformed body

was traced on the railway track.

Being lost her wealth,

his mother approached to the ruler of the state.

High level investigation was conducted

to find out the reason of her son’s death.

Now for that powerful man of affairs

prison has become the only residence.

Here love has taken a different form-

she has turned into a killer leaving her innocence.
