More Powerful Goddes - Poem by Jhadeswar Khanda
My mother said me,
''Neem Shithala Goddess is more powerfull,
Sometimes she steals for her work
My grandfather's red bull.''
She also said me,
''When I suffered in diarrhoea,
She informed at my mother's dream
The herbs of Shankari's garden area.''
Long years ago, in our village
The small-pox was spread,
Most of the people in our region
With severe pain they were dead.
All people prayed her
To free from the epidemic,
She said to worship her
In the dream of the chief.
All villagers gethered & observed
The Shreepanchami Puja in her living place,
She was satisfied
And poured many many bless.
I thought that
These were imaginary story,
But some old people said
About Neem Shithala's glory.
When my mother's brother
Fell in unknown disease,
On my uncle's head
For cure fever, she kept the basil leaves.
In these opinions
I am sure,
The God would show you
If your mind is clear.
