Sprouting Seed (Ankurayan) - Poem by Suman Kumar Das

A selfless seed
Sprightly Sprouted up
Splitting winter soil,
To kiss the shiny sun
Under open sky
On the bank of ‘Paika’.

That arouses consciousness
Free from narrow thoughts
In soft minds of
Innocent children.
Motivates them to use
Hidden inborn talents
On novel ways
For making another history.
Bloom many more buds
With that sprouting seed!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

‘Ankurayana’(A cultural programme held in Odisha every year in January) is a novel effort, initiated by the innovative enthusiastic young spirits of ‘Bandhu’(friend) few years ago on the bank of river ‘Paika’ in view of finding hidden talent-buds of villages and giving them a social exposure. Such appreciable platform has attracted, inspired and motivated hundreds of common children, who are deprived of scopes and opportunities to show their aptitudes. Therefore, I feel proud and it is my great pleasure to dedicate my above few lines to this concept.
