mising people's festival call ali-ai-ligang


. mising people’s festival call Ali-ai-ligang

mising link
of people

sandy river beach
the chang-ghar
call okums stands on
on this floating piece of earth

festivals
signifying
fears no furthur

invoking donyi-polo
the sun and the moon....
...the chants collides with the rhyme
[donyi-polo donyi-polo
asman se kuchto bolo
kisne yeh sansar banaya
kisne hame jag mey basaya
jungle
nadi
pahad
banaya
ha ti
bhalu
sher
banaya...]
o, abotani
pray we for fertility
o, kine-nane
we pray for prosperity

old lady
lamenting
kaban-
children on sands
sands on children
sands of time

they have to wait
to find mising link
for the island
majuli is in sink

world is small
like this big river island majuli

mobile phone rings
number numb
grahem bell is well,
[I call my friend in America grahem,
grahembell invented the phone
never called up his family
because they were dumb]
how are you
where are you

voices
half linking
half sinking

preparing for
Mardi gras festival

where
new orleans on february 16

here
we are celebrating
Ali-ai-ligang festival on february 14 in majuli
Mising people are looking good

In louder voice
What is mising

Ok
Cannot hear you
Write more on e-mail
Link missed

Oye-nitom and karpumpuli
The mising people sings on
