Treasure Island

Aftab Alam

(15 th April 1967 / , , RANCHI,)

Bangladesh


Sweet language wrapped with literature
Thou keep o silky Bangladesh, thy Soft
Nature, still struggling, to get rid of poverty
Yet when you were hatched with liberty
Cupid killed psyche, cajoled and cuddled
Eaten the flesh by the name of Islam, riddled
You and ran for the power, the draculian
Must be unmask and brought to the million
I hope unknowingly and unread those who
Blame the Islam they must understand, lo!
Quran is opened for all, read before fall
Culprits of hatching day must be punished
None should be spared, evil must be vanished
Yet, both are equally responsible for the wrath
O truth thy victory is sure, you clean to be pure
Beauty of the land will lure to cure,
I’m quite sure.

    A love and devotion for your country is one of the
    most important things that a person can have.
    No one wants to see their country ravaged by war,
    unrest and evil forces. Peace to Bangladesh! Good write. (Report) Reply

    The two starting lines are so beautifully written praising the rich literature and Art in general of Bengal / And the rest depicting the unfortunate events from the hands of fanatics (Report) Reply

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
