(Sonepur, ODISHA

A Grain Of Rice


If a grain of rice
Has given the capacity
To attract the blood relations
From miles and miles away
To maintain the relation
For generation after generation
Above all duties
Above all status
It's the culture
Generated by us
Thousands and thousands
Years ago and carefully
Maintained from centuries.
Then why not
Through out the whole world
To create a new tag
Immotionally and mentally
Also physically for
Better achievement and
Batter life

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
