    Out of the so many poems I read in this column this was a peculiar one having the exactness and truth of events that discourages a new born poet and the real confrontation he meets. No more comments about the poem since these are seems to be events.

    I had a chance to meet Dr. Tapan Kumar Pradan at my house and had a long and interesting chat with him!
    When met face to face, I could see a different side of his personality! Dr. Tapan is so sensitive to the problems of the down trodden and has cent percent commitment to his profession, who has travelled extensively and has an enormous fund of experience to his credit. In the midst of his onerous responsibilities as an executive of the Reserve Bank, he finds time to engage in umpteen social activities like planting trees, helping farmers, writing poems, socializing and so on... Warm and humane... let him thrive as a poet of great excellence and recognition!

    I like this best sir poet:

    'What's an award to do with a darned critic? '
    I asked in rage, but his answer was as chic:
    'Your poems are sophisticated, not easy to chew -
    only a critic can lucidate your point of view! '

    You are making a good point here. but then again, you are on top now and can have your audience.

Give Me That Promotion, Sir!

How are you, sir?

I was just passing by,
thought I might as well drop in
and enquire about your health, sir.
How is your stomach, sir, I am sure
by now it should be perfectly alright, sir.

And how is madam, sir
such a marvellous, gracious lady
I always look upon her as my mother, sir
Whatever she tells me is a command for me
so kind-hearted and down to earth,
even my own mother could never
inspire me so much in life, sir.

And how is your son, sir.
Such a dashing, intelligent, fashionable young man,
of all people I ...

Wind In The Afternoon

An assault of cabbage leaves on the pavement
Tries vainly to cover up the manholes;
Splattered egg yolk on the serrated kerb:
Two men look from the window. Wind blows.

A young girl throws a loose bundle
Of waste material from the upper balcony -
The red one is an empty tea carton;
And anything spongy white, thin and long

[Hata Bildir]
