Bio Note: I am a retired geo-scientist and now engage in full-time writing bilingual (English and Bengali) poetry and do book reviews and translation. Yet my first love is travelling and photography. Being a Tiger fan, I love Jungle Safari too much. I jointly edited the Indo-American Anthology titled Bridging Continents.I have a few collections of poems to my credit.
1. The evening lights paddle me to the unknown river flames and ashes conspire death tears washing my eyes, the anger though. 2. Silence in my room should I stay or leave now? night is a jotting pad- stars write half lyrics, they don’t inhabit the world. 3. Memories with untamed manes strike the grounds, laughter ripples a reverbed melody the wind buries the tongue, my voice is silenced.
