“Priyante Sarvedevata”

By Mamoni Gogoi Baruah
Translator: Dr Sudipta Dipak Baruah


Anonymous mother scattered the seeds
In the field lit by moonlight
Strong thunderstorms, difficulties and challenges
-bowing to none
The tiny seed one-day
Stood up with self-confidence
As a giant bough.

Pulling down the moonlight from the sky,
It lit up
The dark room of the little cottage

In a flash of its light,
Erupted the flow
Of the river within the heart – towards illumination

The river flows towards the sea
See to Ocean
 The ocean scattered the light
To the universe.

The tree was standing strong
Grasping the familiar soil

Accepting the dignity of sacrifice,
Cyclone, Thunder, hailstorm
In its shelter was created

A beautiful garden-
Where every little plant
Was a soldier under the sapele
Who learned courage,
And the Art of War
Fought with courage and sincerity.

Established in the sands of time
A smooth golden path,
And one day –
As a silence sculpture
Silently peaceful
Announcing the end of its journey
The tree bowed down.

In that path-
The garden looked up to sing-

PeetaSwargaPeeta Dharma
Pitahiparamtapah
PitriPreetimapanne
PriyanteSarvadevata.
