Best Poem of Rajendra Bhandari

Day´s Footprint

Parting the leaves of the banyan tree
the egg-shaped sun came
and
dropped The Times of India
at my door.


The Times of India gave me a country
floundering to be a nation,
a blood-stained earth
crying out to become a mother.


Later, the day gave me
agitating streets on fire
seeking a clear identity.
As the sun flared up in a flame,
the griddle of the sky
roasted the earth like a roti
ravenously consumed
by a handful of mouth
round a table.

Translated from the Nepali by Pankaj Thapa

Awake, asleep

To slumber amongst the awakened
is more difficult
than staying awake amongst the slumbering.

slumbering can be contagious,
one slumber leading to another,
another, ..... and another
till an epidemic of slumber explodes.
During the pandemic of sleep
