O listen up humanity.

Ranu is my name.

Singing is my game.

Talat,Rafi,Tagore and Celine,

These are my favorite singers.

Talat is from India and

Rafi from Punjab.

Tagore is a Bengali

And Celine speaks French.

Now that I’ve written about

my favorites,

Here is a short verse about me.

I am a Bengali,

I’ll say : aami tomaakey bhalobashi.(I love you)!

Rafi and Talat speak Urdu,

I learned this language too,

Celine speaks French,

I studied it in school.

I learned English from my teachers,

They were  strict indeed.

I had to speak English

Or  they’d make us

pay a fine.

This was a crime said the parents,

you’ll be grounded for

a week!

Naseem,Farida,and Firoza,

Beware! you  speak

English,’til your jaws ache.

Went to college, there was no excuse

English was the medium of instruction,

No difference in the university,

Mon dieu,mon dieu ,what

can I do but speak it,

my friend this is all

about me!

The tune of ‘I had a little nut tree nothing would it bear’, may be quite interesting for my lyrics about me!

  1. Thanks for telling us some about you (may I say that this does not seem to be “all” about you? :-)). And the mix-tape motif is quite appropriate for this, because this does sound like a beautiful medley, mixing the light-vein allusions with the heavy.
