Escape to the Sundarbans
by Swapnil Bhattacharyya
One and all, aboard the craft,
Saturated with steel and flesh.
Swaying from side to side, we went;
Into this alien mesh.

"Hiegh ho! Heigh ho!". were the cries;
"Where is thy homeland?"
This simple folk queried on;
As the summer Sun dried the sand.

The bugs and critters - a part of this life;
Clicked and clucked throughoit the night.
The baul singers bellowed on;
"Encore! Encore!", were the screams of delight.

As we relished the sweet forest dew,
We hardly did realise;
The peril and hardships faced by this race, 
Omnipresent in many a strange guise.

A stroll through this maze, did remind us;
Of the gifts of the Green Mother,
Showered upon us with even flow;
't makes thee ask thyself, "Did I even bother?"

Back to thy homeland;
The sands of time have passed by.
'tis said, "Once escaped to the Sundarbans,
It's myriad melodies will never die!"
