    Out of the so many poems I read in this column this was a peculiar one having the exactness and truth of events that discourages a new born poet and the real confrontation he meets. No more comments about the poem since these are seems to be events.

    I had a chance to meet Dr. Tapan Kumar Pradan at my house and had a long and interesting chat with him!
    When met face to face, I could see a different side of his personality! Dr. Tapan is so sensitive to the problems of the down trodden and has cent percent commitment to his profession, who has travelled extensively and has an enormous fund of experience to his credit. In the midst of his onerous responsibilities as an executive of the Reserve Bank, he finds time to engage in umpteen social activities like planting trees, helping farmers, writing poems, socializing and so on... Warm and humane... let him thrive as a poet of great excellence and recognition!

    I like this best sir poet:

    'What's an award to do with a darned critic? '
    I asked in rage, but his answer was as chic:
    'Your poems are sophisticated, not easy to chew -
    only a critic can lucidate your point of view! '

    You are making a good point here. but then again, you are on top now and can have your audience.

Best Poem of Dr Tapan Kumar Pradhan

A Woman's Scent

That night when my mother
took me to her breasts
I knew woman had a scent
quite different from man's...


Tonight you still remind me of
my mother's old fragrance
though you too have your different scent -
a scent entirely your own!


In summer an aroma of apple juice
envelopes your breasts. In monsoon
the wet fragrance of wild forest flowers
in your hair. And in the winter
your arms smacking of honeyed milk
and your lovely feet of jasmines. In spring
this strong odour of musk in your loins,
and in your navel that faint lavender! ...

Wind In The Afternoon

An assault of cabbage leaves on the pavement
Tries vainly to cover up the manholes;
Splattered egg yolk on the serrated kerb:
Two men look from the window. Wind blows.

A young girl throws a loose bundle
Of waste material from the upper balcony -
The red one is an empty tea carton;
And anything spongy white, thin and long
