    wow! An Ocean in a drop of water.
    I really like it.
    ''Your eggs are hatching''....

    Here is the Bengali Version of your Haiku:

    রোদন থামাও (হাইকু) ।। এলিজাবেথ পাদিল্লো ওলেসেন
    আর্তরোদন কেন?
    পাখি, কান্না ও কোঁকানি থামাও
    তোমার ডিমে তা দেয়া হচ্ছে।

    Thanks for your happy response, dear Rahman. I wish I could read your Bengoli language. I can read Nepali, not Bengoli. But wow, how beautiful the scripts are!

    Yes, Abdulrazak, man's progress makes the future of the young ones possibly alarming. But there is also the growing inhumanity of man against man which cannot let the birds stop from crying. And yet as long as there are eggs hatching and the little ones growing, there is hope for change. (Report) Reply

    Truly, the eggs are hatching but the future of the young ones is in danger on account of man's rapid progress (Report) Reply
