Bronze Star - 2,107 Points (29-06-1976 / Guskara-Burdwan)

A Fostering Blessing. - Poem by PARTHA SARATHI PAUL

An undaunted honey-suckle
is climbing up across an aristocrat wall
jolly conceited to sport a Hellenic mural.

The Grecian vanity
sneers at the climbing up beauty
and at its neoclassical audacity.

But when the fatherly eye of the day
sees the courage only with a golden smile,
the silver mother drives away the glances dark and vile.
