    translated from Bengali to English by Nandini Gupta


    Sankha Ghosh

    translated from the original Bengali by

    Nandini Gupta

    what tender age, how tender my heart was

    when padma you bid me goodbye

    today in my heart I know not you not you

    it was I who forsook myself in the night.

    for that crime, Nurul, you left me behind

    and went to war on your own

    for that crime today I sit and watch

    your sole grief, sole death, triumph.
