    You are the joy of life (Jibon + Anonda= Joy of life)
    You are the best ballad in bengali mind.
    You are the defining essence of modernism
    in bengali poetry at that time.
    Today, tomorrow and for ever
    Every moment we will and we are
    shairing your moments of sorrow and moments of joy.
    Dr. Mridha.

    It's sad that Das has never won the recognition his talent deserves world-wide. Apart from being among the most gifted expressionists of the last hundred years, his best work also had elements of seething anger and ruthless destruction of the like almost unmatched for the last hundred years. It only adds to his obscurity that his poetry is almost intranslatable, and he must, as a result, remain as loved and honoured as he is only by the select few who speak in the same language in which he wrote.

The Cat

All day I inevitably encounter a cat here and there
In the shadow of trees or out in the sun, around
the pile of fallen leaves;
I catch sight of him, deeply engrossed like a bee,
with his own self
Embedded in the skeleton of white soil
Having successfully spotted some bones
of fishes somewhere;
But still, nevertheless, he scratches at the trunk
