Mogolmari - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

Mogolmari,
The historicity and antiquity of it
None could ever know
Till it was excavated and unearthed,
not even the historians
Had not someone seen,
The locals preserved it,
How did it India regressed in the medieval period
That the glories needed to be be earthed,
How backward and superstitious did we become?

The Buddhist site unearthed in West Bengal's Dantan
At Mogolmari place,
The hamlet standing as a witness
To the mounds lying as the dumping heaps
Of earth, soil
Hiding n the treasure trove of history
And old antiquity,
A Buddhist vihara and artifacts,
The stuccos,
Gold coins and others.

The seafaring sand marine routes,
Navigational ways
Without the borders and boundaries
For passing through East Bengal
To the north-east and Burma
And its beyond
Too can be taken into consideration,
The visits of overseas students
And disciples.

Apart from the Gupta influence,
The Sena and Pala kings's histories
We cannot discern it,
The reference of Chandraketu,
The circle rounding
With Nalanda, Vikramshila and others,
The viharas
Ascetic and meditational
and in the midst of Nature.
