Anthony - Poem by Prayag Saikia

In the abode of cloud
Received news of your demise
Classmate Jayanta Anthony

You had been for us
Edison Thomas Alva of childhood

The Marco Polo cigarette
Between your lips
Always beautiful
In the album of memory

Remember your library
And the first excursion of our life

What do I write
For you
In the abode of cloud

Everything is in the letter of cloud

Standing in the prayer hall of God
I said to Jesus
O God
Please keep my friend well

(Translated from original Assamese by Bibekananda Choudhury)
