Kazi Nazrul Islam (24 May 1899 - 29 August 1976 / Bardhaman / India)
A Tribute From the Poet
From Allah comes today
Those of whom Allah is patron
This victory is of them,
It is the victory of God's Will,
Not for our vain fame.
It is a victory, but
Merely the stepping stone, no more;
From so much bondage-affliction
Toward above we have to soar.
So much division, schism
Jealousy, greed and arrogance,
All these will simply disappear
With His one merciful glance.
You are the new travelers
You are bound toward Him,
Following your footsteps
Here comes a heavenly beam.
Yes, coming are the travelers
Young warriors of new age,
Soon world's misery and suffering
Will be confined in their cage.
[Original: Kabir Proshosti (Bengali) ,
