JOURNALIST

Original author: Shri Mahim Bora
Translation: Bibekananda Choudhury
Where shall I get
Who will convey
The message of the heart
Of a person
To another?

Are there any journalist
Anywhere
Who can pour ambrosia
In the dying voice
With a flood of heart touching words?

Picking up the fallen leaves one by one
Pouring paints over them
Many a people built
Majestic castles

The heaps of garbage
That tumbles down in a moment
Rolls over to our courtyard and floor
Heaping upto the knee

Denuding the hills
Building hills of words
It has just tonsured
The hearts of people

Where they are
Where shall I get
That journalist
Who shall carry the news of heart
From people to people
