Glimpses of hindi writings

Sweet home
 I want to tell you about that period of my life /When I lived in a mud-house plastered with cow-dung.

At that time the door of my house was wide open for the guests./For one and all in fact.

On the doorstep of my house  /One could smell the fragrance of sandalwood.

My courtyard was as bright as gold /But when prosperity smiled to me

And I had the means  to have a magnificent building erected, /I named it sweet-home

From that time the door of my house was almost closed to the guests.

And when I have got a compound  of my sweet-home /It is fenced with barbed-wire.

Translated by the poet, Dr. M .Chintamunnee

 


Bhanoomatee Nagdan


Interests

Writing, cinema ,music, theatre, politics, travelling and meeting people. Reader of Premchand, Sharat Chandra,Tagore, Guy de Maupassant, Flaubert, Tolstoi, Charlotte sisters etc. Follower of Gandhian principles. Well-known among the hindi lovers for her feminist ideas and bold speech.

(A portion from the short story Ek ghar i.e A home from the book Minister.P84)

If he had told you clearly, you could have bought it, Luxmi ! Today the prices are high. Even the corpse of an elephant is worth Rs.125,000.A portion of land worth Rs. 5,000 has been sold at Rs.75,000.It is a good bargain when one thousand rupees is a dream. Do you possess Rs.75,000 ?Even land is gaining the price of gold. When our ancestors came from hindustan they had the inner confidence that there is gold in the soil of Mauritius. Today the dream seems to be true in a sense. Today it is a fact that there is no gold in the soil but the land itself has got the golden value.

You have reached  the other end of the way. Today the great need of  people like us is merely a shelter. We don`t need a big house or a bungalow. We just want a little roof for ourselves. Where to go with such a request?  Whose door should we knock ?Who will listen to our story? What will happen to us? Where should we go with our olden roots ?

Both of them were lost in their endless problems.

Another portion of writing from the story Khilowna (toys) included in the book Minister.P89

As Life is going on today what can we do for our children? After great difficulty we earn one or two meals . We can neither buy a good car to offer a comfortable ride to our children nor we can travel by aeroplane. It is enough if we can make them enjoy with these toys anyway. They fulfil their desire while playing with them. They learn something even they break them into pieces during their play. Childhood comes once in a lifetime. Let`s ornate their tender age with flowers of love and perfume of our memory which remains for ever in the child`s heart. Life is a toy. Play with it as long as you can. We can`t expect much from death. Life possesses  whatever we wish .Life is worth living as it has every thing to make us happy. Nobody knows when life becomes silent or finished as broken toys .

A poem from the book

I want to live

( Page 111 )

A house be made where relationship never dies

Where the colour of love be spread

Every while I want to put some colours

I want to live .

A  world of mine be sheltered where the breath is not suffocated.

Where lies freedom in bondage

Every while I want to be bound

I want to live.

A yard be beautified where there will be no taboo to laugh

Where the flowers would like to flourish

Every while I want to be full of perfume

I want to live.

A song of mine be  echoed where life has not the habit of crying

Where there is the paradise of happiness

Every while I want to hum

I want to live.

A lamp of mine be ignited where every breath will be of confidence.

Where every scratch be covered with the border of my clothing

Every while I want emit such light 

I want to live.

Lead me unto the village of stars

(Le chal mujhe taron ke gaon mein. Puspanjali  p37)

Lead me unto the village of stars/The village of everlasting stars             Lead me unto the village of stars/The village of everlasting stars

                    Where huge planets can hear my love/And be the witness of my heart           Let me hear the music of Heaven/Let me reach the bossom of Queen Moon

Let me be one of her Queendom/And let my love shine like a star.        Oh ! Queen of the night, let me visit your village/And your inhabitants the stars;

                     Make me once an angel and let me fly/Amongst the unknown feelings.       This is no world to live in /Where love makes no friends

Take me away /Where only love reigns         So lead me unto the village of  stars/ Where only love reigns.

A part from  patthar ke lor, p9

Gorka smiled then sang a song to lure Sanwarki, the black beauty.

A short trip of ten minutes up to Souillac and backway.

Let`s go and wander at Souillac. What`s in a life?

A short trip of ten minutes up to Souillac and backway.

Let`s go and wander there Sawnri, the black beauty.

The black beauty believed his words. Closed back the door of her house and mounted on the horse-back of the fair complexioned. Both went towards Souillac cajoling each other throughout the serpentine road to reach Gris-Gris near the hill called Lilotte. They stepped down the horse. The fair complexioned Gorka put the horse in the shade of a tree and they strolled  along the seaside.

It was summer-time. The Sun was shining harshly. The sea breeze was full of fresh air. Seeing the bluish water they were tempted to enter it. After walking for a while in the shallow water of the shore, they started swimming in the deep sea. Lost in their mutual affection, they were totally unaware of the outside world. 

They had forgotten entirely the oath taken in front of their father and mother.
