A talking balloon!

By Subrata Mukherjee

In love with Golapi, Subratagolapi.

The New World (Natun Prithibi)

A talking balloon!

Popping up in the air of praise!
Nothing to do but only the acts of others to erase.
Making a name for him all the time, in your ear and in mine.
Going up and up rising straight.
Ravens by his side, became a headless to forget!
His own promise to the million.
Made him to count in trillion!
With the feet not on the ground
but his head is in the sky!
Vacant in heart, without pain.
For those who are ordinary and wry!
He has learnt to take air,
And sees the things very clear.
Even in the day, with the sun or in a night, without the moon.
At last in his pleasure, he becomes more than he was always and ever, a talking balloon!

The highest lie!

In love with Golapi, Subratagolapi.

The New World (Natun Prithibi)

The highest lie!

I can do wonder, believe me;
Just you smile at yours
at what you are!
I can say big words only;
always at your stand.
I am fine and you with your fate
suffering for every moment,
jobless, diseased and more!
You are in million and
I count the notes in trillion!
I am the best and the rest
all, just more than the worst!
