In response to my poem to publicly shame Nachiketa for not coming out to run with us (errr… I mean eat luchi mangsho with us) – which I might hasten to add was extremely effective since he signed up immediately, my school friend Sibapriya (remember him? I visited him and his parents in Midnapore a couple of months back) posted an outstanding response in the form of another Bengali poem he wrote (written to a different iambic metre). In this he urges Nachiketa NOT to come out and run/eat luchi mangsho etc…
Luchi aar mangsho!
Ei ki go tomader ghata kore
Ray,Mukhopadhyay ra ki
Noy ki ta risky?
Well played, Sibapriya, well played!! I bow to superior talent!!
