Poetry in Protest – Lojja kore na? (Are you not ashamed?) #hokkolorob

Protest Against Molestation And Police Crackdown On Students In Jadavpur University

Aaj onekdin pore, khub raag hochhey.

Bhool bujhben na. Ei raag baamponthi noy, Maobaadi noy.

Kothay kothay, rege gele, gaalagaal diley, aapnara bhaben aami Opposition.

Khoma korben, Aami eka!

Shei Satyajit er Gobeshok aami – Aami Eka!

Aamar raag ke aapni ‘enemy of the state’ boley uriye ditey paaren na.

Aami State. Aamar moto haajar haajar manushjon, aamra State.

(Aar bhodrobhaabe kotha bolte paarchi na)

Shon haaraamjada!

Tokey chair tay boshiyechilam aamra. State.

Tokey aamader raasta-ghat sharanor kaaj diyechilam.

Chakri dibi, gram-gonjer dekhashona korbi, lekha-pora shekhabi…

Unnoti bujhish? Unnoti?

Paarli unnoti aantey?

London banabi? Aagey ekta bhodro-shobbho Kolkata bana!

Je Kolkatay chele-meyera thaktey chaye. Thakar karon khunje paye.

Kar bhorshay thakbe? Tor?

Chakri nei, porashona’r haal behaal, university tey police dhoke,

Aalo nibhiye chhatro petaye,

Gunda pathiye dholai kore,

Meyeder gaaye haath toley,

Haath toley? Aamader gaaye haath toley?

Eto shaahosh holo ki kore?

Tui jokhon ‘Opposition’ chhili,

Tor haajar natok-meeting-michhil dekhechi.

Tokhon tokeo jodi, gherao kore, police diye maar khaiye jail ey purto,

Tui ki kortish?

Mone kore dekh –

Tui o toh maar kheyechili.

Jail ey gechili.

Onekei toh bolechilo – ‘nongra maiya’

Tor kemon legechilo?

Bhalo legechilo?

Tui raagishni?

Shei raag money porey?

Shei raag kintu komeni tor.

Lorechili, bochhorer por bochhor.

Tarpor aamra – Aamra – tokey jitiyechilam.

Aaj chair tay gordhobder maajhe boshey,

Tui shei shob bhooley geli?

Aamra kintu khub rege gechi.

Tor raag jemon komeni, aamadero kombe na.

Buddho-Biman er gaaye-o jokhon Hitleri rong dhorechilo,

Aamra onek shojjo kore, tarpor ulto-haather chor koshiye,

Ghaar dhakka diye baar kore diyechilam.

Money aachey toh?

Bottirish bochhor koshe boshe chhilo.

Ore idiot, tor kota bochhor hoyeche re?

Aamra ektu olosh, shojjo shokti osheem.

Kintu bhool koreo eta bhebona je khediye door korte jaani na.

Hawa boddo gorom, rokto phutchhey boddo.

Aaj onekdin pore, khub raag hochhey.

Hok kolorob.
