    He was a poet of love,
    He was a poet of rebellion
    He was simple but profound,
    He was funny but he was very kind.
    He was a poet who is touching our heart
    and intriguing our mind
    He was a phenomenon and
    He was phenomenal
    As a poet and as a bird of song
    He is living in our heart and in our love. Dr. Mridha.

The Rebel

Say, Valiant,
Say: High is my head!

Looking at my head
Is cast down the great Himalayan peak!
Say, Valiant,
Say: Ripping apart the wide sky of the universe,
Leaving behind the moon, the sun, the planets
and the stars
Piercing the earth and the heavens,
Pushing through Almighty's sacred seat
Have I risen,
I, the perennial wonder of mother-earth!
The angry God shines on my forehead
Like some royal victory's gorgeous emblem.
Say, Valiant,
Ever high is my head!

I am irresponsible, cruel and arrogant,
I an the king of the great ...
