Bhagabati’s Ghinua and Paul Robson’s Joe Hill

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

Bhagabati Panigrahi was one of the three founders of Communist Party of India in Orissa. He had contributed immensely to the literature that had created a new era of revolution. His story Shikar had the hero in Ghinua to whom an exploiter deserved to be killed like a tiger that endangered human life. The administration had hanged him to death. And his death has made him immortal. Similarly, Paul Robson’s Joe Hill refuses to die despite death.

I pay my homage to Bhagabati by translating Robson’s poem to club the same with Ghinua.

Now Only You

by Subhas Chandra Pattanayak

June 24 needs no mention of the year. Life is what it was years before and what it will be hereafter. When sometimes one feels that in the vast sea of time, years with a number tag like 1974 or 2015 carry no permanency, only a day of significance appears permanent. And, one such day in my life is June 24 when Sabita had come to my life. She is the gift of my parents to me as I am of her parents to her.

As we age, deeper becomes our oneness under the blessings of our late lamented parents. Love fills up life and brings up a feeling of love beyond life.

The attached poem depicts this feeling.
