आइआ मेथाइ रोजाबदों (Amma is Singing…) – Swapna Behera / Translated by Bijit Ramchiary

Poem by Swapna Behera

 

आइआ मेथाइ रोजाबदों

बोड़ो अनुवाद : बिजित गोरा
रामसियारि

आइआ मेथाइ रोजाबदों

फुंबिलि समाव

नख’रनि गासै सुखु गोजोननि थाखाय

आजै आजौफोरनि फोरोंलांनाय आरज गाबदों

बिनि गोजा फुथाया दुलुर सान बादि मोदानफबदों

आइआ मेथाइ रोजाबदों

सानजौफु समाव

दोंसे गोजाम हिन्दी देंखो

गैया हान्थुआव सानाय; गैया मलम

बिनि फिसाया स्काइपनि गेजेरजों

आमेरिकानिफ्राइ फन बुहरदों

आइआ मेथाइ रोजाबदों

बेलासि समाव

डायलिसिस आरांगा सायाव

जोन्थोराव बिनि थैया जेन गामिनि थानसालियाव

होनाय गोजा जबा बिबारसो

आइआ मेथाइ रोजाबदों

मोनाबिलि समाव

जिउनि लामायाव जाथावनानिफ्राय

जाथावनाङै जाथायफोरनि दावबायनायसिम

जानोहागौ बियो बापतिसमा मोनबाय

सोरगोनि दरखंआव आगान हैनो

फेंफाफोरा मुसुरदों

बैसोमुथिया बिनि मिनिनायखौ गोमखां होदों

अह नङा! आइआ रोजाबाखै !!!

Amma is Singing…

Amma is singing
In the dawn
Prayer of ancestors
Wishing all joys for her family
Her red bindi shines like the round Sun

Amma is singing
At the noon
An old Hindi melody
No knee pain; no balm
Her son telephoned from America via Skype

Amma is singing
In the evening
On the dialysis table
Her blood in the machine
Like the hibiscus flower
On the village deity

Amma is singing
In the dusk
The journey of the happenings to non-happenings
May be she is baptised
To enter into the divine door
The bubbles are whistling
The soil echoes her smiles

Oh no! Amma is not singing!!!……..
