I became deeply uncomfortable, generated some strong aversion to this new phenomenon. I had always felt that to compose in the English language in order to earn cheap accolades in the West is the worst possible form of greed and narcissism.

This feeling has deepened this time here, at Iowa.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Every single day I receive some invitation or the other to write in English. I have refused. There are 7 crores of potential Bangla readers for me. Much more than French and Italian.

I am just doing fine. I write poetry and have no intention to translate my sensibilities. If you wish to access my thoughts in English—do translate me. I had officially come here to do this kind of mutual back-patting. So far I have resisted that lure.

But the real problem with Hungry is not English. The Bangla is even worse. They try shortcut stuff—the idea is to taste readymade fame by abusing and slighting others in the trade. I hope you do not end up really thinking that Malay has some writerly stuff in him!

I am wondering because in a recent Hindi literary magazine I have a read an effusive piece by you on this Hungry fad. I could have dismantled that attempt. That I could. But I refrained. I am telling all this to you because I so much value you as a writer and thinker.

There is no trick in this my exhortation Sandipan. I did not follow very well the kind of new things that have happened at your end. Why did you send the same letter to four of your friends—us? I could not fully grasp this method. But then again who has given me this right to understand how your mind works!

The point is that once I return to Kolkata, I will sleep peacefully, will walk around rather happily fleet-footed.

I really wondered why Malay had published my letter. I hope he has not published any truncated version. That will be so out of the context. I have written to him recently: But these are ephemera—really. No one can touch you. And I shall stand by you always. We have fought over many issues, Sandipan.

But I have thought about you patiently: I cannot. In a manner of speaking you are my obverse—your fragmentary-disjointed character, your errors and your treachery—to all these I aspire. Like a life I never had but so wished for. Whenever I think of any writer in our generation with some real promise, I think of you and only you except for Tanmay Dutta.

There is no one in the city of Kolkata—who will dare touch your subtle body. You keep on sleeping softly, oh so softly with Rina and tell her those stories from Mars. Have been detained here for sundry reasons. My idiocy, mostly. There is an outside chance of staying in Paris during late July or in early August. You have lost all sense of proportion! This movement is characterized by expression of a closeness to nature and sometimes by tenets of Gandhianism and Prudhonianism. Related Papers.

Remember me on this computer. Shakti has written some extraordinary lines. Much, much deeper and larger than me—this Shakti. I respect him a lot. But his poems are headless.

I cannot write like that and do not want to write like that simply because I do not live that kind of a life. I can relate much more to Utpal. But this, my resting with beer, makes me oblivious to all poetry. There is no poetry, no heart, nothing. Sandipan, why have you not written much of late?

What is this thing about occasional prose pieces? This habit of yours has attracted you to the Hungry Hangama—this latest fad. I did forbid you. And you did not trust me. And then you simply distanced yourself gradually.

I never stopped Shakti. Shakti is greedy. Utpal too has taken that route. But I knew that you were not greedy. I have often shared a bed with you, stood in the same shadow while walking in the sun.

I know very well the contours of my own greed. And therefore, I could instinctively feel that your greed is less than mine. I became deeply uncomfortable, generated some strong aversion to this new phenomenon. I had always felt that to compose in the English language in order to earn cheap accolades in the West is the worst possible form of greed and narcissism. This feeling has deepened this time here, at Iowa. Would you ever like to be an object of curiosity and pity to the outsider? Every single day I receive some invitation or the other to write in English.

The point is that once I return to Kolkata, I will sleep peacefully, will walk around rather happily fleet-footed. I really wondered why Malay had published my letter.Once you listen with care On empty midnight streets Your ear on the road.

When we moved under a lamp and took time taking photos to ensure they were clear, these problems were mitigated to some degree, but never all the way. Many call him the best lyrical poet after Rabindranath Tagore. Especially the letters marked with the red pencil. In this poem, the author uses vivid imagery to describe a sleeping neighbourhood. Shakti Chattopadhay Except Rabindranath Tagore, who died inand Jibanananda Das who died inno Bengali poet has been more adored, and imitated, than Chattopadhyay.
