    You are a world in poet...

  • Debasish Mridha, M. D. (1/26/2013 8:24:00 PM)

    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.

    He is the Yeats of Bangladesh.

    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.

Best Poem of Jibanananda Das

Banalata Sen

It has been a thousand years since I started trekking the earth
A huge travel in night’s darkness from the Ceylonese waters
to the Malayan sea
I have been there too: the fading world of Vimbisara and Asoka
Even further—the forgotten city of Vidarva,
Today I am a weary soul although the ocean of life around continues to foam,
Except for a few soothing moments with Natore’s Banalata Sen.

Her hair as if the dark night of long lost Vidisha,
Her face reminiscent of the fine works of Sravasti,
When I saw her in the shadow it seemed
as if a ship-wrecked mariner ...

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
