I will not call ,

I will not call ,

I will not call this way,

from outside.

If possible I will

use my inner self to call.

I will not call this way.

My heart aches to give,

I know not where the

receiver is.

Who will make this giving

and receiving possible?

I will not ,not

call this way from outside.

will there be harmony

between our pain?

Will the Ganges and the

dark waters of Jumna unite?

Can we understand

each other’s pain?

The musical instrument

sounded on its own.

He came on his own,

when leaving he promised

to be back.

I will not,not call this

way from outside!

  1. Such a beautiful poetry this is, an amazing analysis of man’s inner and outer ways of reaching to others. When we are fully evolved as an emotional person we tend to reach others from within and the inner awareness becomes richer and inner consciousness dilates. This never means that the outer awareness is any less than the inner, but the point is that one feel at times to speak from deeper recesses, from secluded depths. But the others are generally ready only to interact with us from outer consciousness and one finds it very hard to find someone who will receive and hear the call of inner vociferation. The poet thinks his pain is much more deeper than what is apparent. Excellent translation.
