On your Birthday



Happy Birthday...
I wish you were here today- to see what a big deal politicians make out of this day,and to tell me how it feels to lose something for which one has had to strive all his life.
I need to know how one can write poems after losing his son, I want to know how it feels to see people making a God out of yourself.I would like to see what you would have created today when the blood being spilt is as red as the flag which veils the murderers.
I wish you were here today.

tomar ashon shunyo aji,hey bir purno koro
oije dekhi boshundhora kaplo thoro thoro.

Back then 'politics' involved fighting for the country as a whole.. today it's for the various, casts, sects, sectors and more importantly the politicians own bottomless pockets.
*disgusted*

In a way Tagore is better off where he is.. In some beautiful world he deserves for the way he's enriched so many lives. Sigh...

loved the line where the red flag veils the red blood spill, brilliant expression!
