Pujo Rap

Pujo, for the Bengali, has probably changed significance over the years. The urban population has become nuclear resulting in having more on their plate in dealing with their own demons day in and day out.  Festivals have therefore become more of an excuse to relax and spend some time with loved ones. Relaxation brings about craving for food, adda, fun and frolic.

Here’s my Pujo rap…. If only I had an ear for music, I would have probably put this to music.

জামা আছে, জুতো আছে
আর আছে কাশ,
অ্যাডভার্টাইসিং বিলবোর্ডে
ভরা চারপাশ।
দোকান প্রচুর খাবারের
প্যান্ডেলকে করে গ্রাস
খেয়ে হাঁশফাঁস।
ছুটি আছে, ল্যাদ আছে
এই চারটে দিন
মা দুর্গা বলে বলে
আড়মোড়া ভেঙে নিন।
নতুন নতুন প্রেম আছে
opportunity খোঁজে মন
সরস্বতী আর লক্ষ্মীকে
টেক্কা দেয় তিন্নির বোন!
তালে তালে ঢাক বাজে
মাতল ভুবন,
পুজো শেষে ভেবে মরো
বাড়ল কত ওজন?
বলো দুর্গা মাঈ কি….

Here’s hoping that everyone has a rocking Pujo.

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.
