  • Alone : Sankha Ghosh
    translated from Bengali to English by Nandini Gupta

    what tender age, how tender my heart was
    when padma you bid me goodbye
    today in my heart I know not you not you
    it was I who forsook myself in the night.

    for that crime, Nurul, you left me behind
    and went to war on your own
    for that crime today I sit and watch
    your sole grief, sole death, triumph.
