THE CLARION CALL, a poem by Debojyoti Sinha

Dils Debojyoti Sinha, Mumbai

The boat of the Bishnupriyas got afloat again
In the sea of time, bisecting the waves of misery.
Come on, ride quickly.
Do not get afraid of the storm of clan discriminations among us.
Come on, ride quickly by chanting the name of Lord Bishnu.

Tanubabu and Kirtibabu are the flags
And are flying high defying the storm.
Do not get afraid , come on, ride quickly
The boat is afloat negotiating the waves.

Mahendrababu is the sailor, Krishnadas the helmsman
Dhirachandra, Nila Mukharjee are with them to assist,
Rudrababu is the shed, Krishnakumar the pushing pole,
Falguni, Babuchand B.L. are the oarsmen.
The boat is afloat braving the waves
Do not get afraid, come on , ride quickly

Jadab master is the first passenger from the Madai's
Nadia from Kanchanbari, a lot from Halhali
Though some villages are curiously away
Causing, for all, a painful concern.

To board in the boat from the shore
The linking plank, made of Gokul's heart, is there.
The light and the heavy can walk through easily
And, to board in and off, keep it safe with care.

The boat of the Bishnupriyas got afloat again
In the sea of time, bisecting the waves of misery
Come on, ride quickly by chanting the name of Lord Bishnu.
