COMMUNITY LUNCH (PANKTI BHOJAN)
Tarapith cremation grounds
They sit on the floor for gracious lunch,
Like dreaming birds to acquire saintly gifts,
In the place where pilgrims gather to
With coolness, with perseverance,
They wait for turns, and devotees-in-charge serve
Hot Gobindabhog rice, lentils soup, veg. curry,
All are fostered with fresh waking up.
They dearly take part in the Bhakti songs,
An episode of faith, patience, empowerment,
A merger with divine love-word puzzles,
A growing inspired voyage of fulfilment.
Never has it grown to feel empty-handed,
Until they can cool themselves from burns,
They just focus to the superiority of answer,
And move out of this place, in realm of wisdom.
