Rise Up, Women - Rise Up Like The Flaming Fire - Poem by Kazi Nazrul Islam

Rise up Women, rise up like the flaming fire!
Rise up, O wife of the Sun-god,
with the mark of blood on your forehead! ! !
Dangling your tongues all around
dance on, you mad, naked women!
Rise up, you wretched, raped serpents,
awaken your power to burn the world! ! !
Like the fire blazing out of a smoke heap,
rise up all you mothers, daughters, wives, sisters!
Redeemers of the sinners, the fallen
like the flowing Ganges rise up,
all you downtrodden;
fill the clouds with blazing thunder,
O Women the ever-victorious
awaken in you the goddess Durga!

[Translation: Sajed Kamal]
