TRIBUTE TO ARUN

Original in Assamese: Prayag Saikia
Translation: Bibekananda Choudhury


The eight hues of Arun
The Sunlike persona
Following the seven-hued rain
The rainbow dazzles

The eight hues of
Aashirbador Rang
Arun learnt the Rule
To break the Rule
New moment of life’ drama
In absurd platter

On the stage of heart
Once again alights
Nibaran

Arun rises in the night sky
The Sun too is a star
The narrator throws
Heart touching dialogues
