Just…

সমুদ্রের ঢেউ যেন সে,
আছড়ে পড়ে বুকে  
চ্ছিনিয়ে নেয় সকল সপ্ন  
  মথিযে যায় দুখে |  
যায় সে হারায়-  
  ভাসায়ে দুকূল,  
শুধু নিশানা রেখে যায়  
  করে প্রাণকে আকুল;  
ক্ষদ্র সেই বলুকনা  
যায় পাড়ে ফেলে-  
তৃপ্তি বুঝি তায়ে পাও তুমি,  
মনের সাথে খেলে ||


I have no idea what is the matter with me, except that I am not myself. Writing is also eluding me, and it is not a state of mind I can stand. Please pardon me for switching to my mother tongue. It is the language of my heart, the language I think in, the language I love. The font is terrible, Bengali letters are really much more beautiful, but since this was, for the time being, the only option for me, I am happy with it. I have always expressed best in Bengali. It is the most melodious language to me. Please understand that I need this for myself. I can feel the most, say the most only ever in this language. Thanks for your patience with me. You have no idea how grateful I’m to those who find time for this place. Thank you so much. Love, G.

N.B. To my Bengali readers, there are some spelling mistakes, but this was what I could do best in the software I used, I don’t think there will be any problem understanding the real words/meanings. G.

ADDENDUM :
A very poor translation, but a translation in essence. Of the piece above.

Like a wave of the sea
It crashes on the heart,
Snatches away dreams
And smoulders it in hurt.
Away it goes, lost-
Drowning its shores,
Just a trace remains
Making the heart mourn; 
The tiny sprinkle of sand
Left on the coasts-
Your salvation it seems
Is in playing with thy soul.

    Hey Guria, I understand and I appreciate. To me Bengali is one of those sweet languages, which I have tried to learn.. but due to inconsistency always lost the touch.
    A request (if you can…) – can you provide the gist in English- of what you have said? Of course, I won't insist. Do you have a blog in Bengali? If not, may be you can start one.

    Okay now the comments are being published in reverse chronological order, as in I have to read my own replies first! I am undecided whether I appreciate the change, as yet! 😛

    Hey Aneet

    I wish it was just a writer's block…
    But you are right! 🙂

    Hi Roshmi

    Bangali, byapok! 🙂
    Thank you… just one of my shorter creations, etai type korte giye matha kharap hoye gechhilo! 😛 😀

    Hey rimz

    Long time, girl! Thank you!! 🙂
    Bojhar jonyo, double thank you! 🙂

    Hey Mahesh

    For a moment I thought you are a Bengali too 😀
    But I echo your sentimentality completely! Yup, I'll always love the language I think, no matter how many languages I may learn. 🙂

    Hey Priyan

    If I translate it, it will show my love for which language, Bengali or English?? 😉
    Anyway, it is just a poetry, not on languages but of feelings elicited by the sea.

    Hi Mav 🙂

    But I use Chrome, and it is showing up here! :O
    Yup, something very close that I dared to post due to the low number of Bengali readers! 😛
    Do I express as well? Tell you a secret, I tried to make it like your, such an attempt is there in here, but I think I fail miserably! But well, I am not a quitter, will keep trusting!! 😀

    Hey Aativas

    You did learn Bengali! Sweet is the word to describe the language. I'll try to give the gist in English but it might not be so easy. And a Bengali blog, never thought of it before, but it is an idea! Thank you! 🙂
