Mirror - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal

I don't know it's wrong or right
I heard it from seniors
In the ICS interview
A British interviewer
Said to Netaji Subhas Bose,
I am just looking a monkey
in front of me.
Bose replied,
'Yes sir, I am a mirror.'

Not only he,
You and I too are mirrors
It's the Indian Philosophy
Our philosophers say
Things come and go
Do not carry the past
Be like a mirror
Remain always in present
Each moment you will take birth
A new.
