song by hemanta mukherjee,posted and translated by ranu


The poet is describing the wind storm in his song. The rhythm is unbelievable.

The wild wind is blowing

The world is spinning

It’s color is changing

from golden to green

Love is in the air,

some accept and return

Others throw it away

It’s a puzzle none can grasp

The unruly wind makes one cry

and forget

the ever-changing color goes

from black to white,

there is a sudden lull

before it restarts its fury

It’s a battle of life,

You’re brave if you win

A coward if you lose

It brings bad luck,

to a whole host of people

who lose everything.

Such is its pattern!

DP Daily Prompt: Reason to Believe

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

In reason to believe, Bruce Springsteen sings, At the end of every hard-earned day, people find some reason to believe. What’s your reason to believe?

At the end of every difficult season I have reason to believe the next one is going to be better. Winter started early, every day I believed it will not last too long because it started early. December,January,February, March and even April did not spare us from the dreaded snow.

While nature was lashing its fury on us a section of the population was loving it,they were raising their price for clearing the snow, between nature and some people we were being squeezed out of our money pretty fast. Even then I thought this cannot last forever,there still is hope of better days,when the snow will find some other place to torment and leave us alone.

This is May 1st and I am not convinced snow has done its job and will not come back till December. The sun is shining today, let’s hope our cold winter is ready to move on and leave us to enjoy some much needed warm days. My reason to believe this is because we had too many days of cold weather and we deserve some good warm weather.
