Nandankanan - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Here it is
In Bhubaneswar,
Come on
And see the animals
And birds
Chilling out
This summer.

Green mangoes, water melon,
cucumber, papaya, green coconut water,
Sugar cane juice all are there
For animals and birds with
This 45 degree heat,
Vitamins and supplements
Are also added to the diet.

Come on
To this Nandankanan
Health checkup are regular
Herbivorous animals
Spotted deer, blue bulls
And chimpanzees and zebras
And carnivorous animals
Tigers lions bears are there
Crying for water this summer.

Fans coolers and ice blocks
Are here, see sprinkling water
This nandankanan is ours
See this is crocodile area.
O my dear, roam not inside the zoo,
It is 11 AM and the sun is
At its fiercest
Please come back and take rest.
