Poem: Song of a Bulbul – Dedicated to my Cutest Friend, Priyankar Sarkar
Well, where do I start from? It’s been almost five years and Priyankar is still the same – cute, charming and calm. He is not only a great friend, but a wonderful human. He always wears a saccharine smile on his face, and his rich perspicacity towards human emotions is his biggest asset. He is an avid reader and loves Hindustani Classical music. He likes to do meditation in his spare time. His wisdom in business is his opulence which he treasures with love and care. If you ever need to read a good book, then he would show up as a library – ha ha!
Priyankar, you are a very dear friend of mine. I truly treasure our friendship. I want to pay my Gratitude to you for always being kind and gentle. You always make me laugh with your marvellous sense of humour and your brilliant jokes. Thanks dude! I know, sometimes life envelops us in its hustle and bustle, but I want you to know that you are always in my Heart. I love you, my cute friend. I wish you all the best for your future endeavours. I hope that you like the song posted underneath – your favourite Rabindra Sangeet. Here's a toast to our friendship! Cheers!
An euphoric whirlwind arose within
Like the shimmering sun rises in molten Orange,
And softly perching on the scarlet carpet of a Divine alcove,
Where the mellifluous orchestra echoed
With mirth as your inner Golden rays
Embraced the silky winds, sublimely pulling down
The cotton-white clouds in the emporium of Love.
Cute pal! Diving deep into the placid
Sea of your eyes, I found the jewels
Of sanctity adorned effulgently...
Come! Let my crimson boat levitate in the vastness
Of your whiff, where the sweet silence
Ultimately transforms into an indigo firmament –
Like the celestial sky touches the zenith of loftiness.
Today, my Soul sings an orison like a bulbul
That may your name be engraved on the Hearts
Of many glorious pages of history!
