A Love Story

The girl is an ultra-modern scholar, 
Belongs with an upper-middle class family. 
Looking very nice, smart, gets angry suddenly. 
She reads M.A in English at Presidency University. 
She is assimilating to the ideas of Shakespeare, 
Shelley, Keats, Neruda, Byron...
Fluently speaks English, loves cricket. 
Shoulders are shaken by expression.
She cries alone, laughs with everyone....

The girl is very good.

The boy is a post-modern educated son of a lower-middle class family.
He studies M.A in Bengali at Calcutta University.
He is assimilating to the routes of Vaishnab literature,
Ideas of Bharatchandra, Rabindranath Tagore, Nazrul, Jibanananda...
Writes poems, sings song, loves football.
He walks on the high-street and observes people.
He laughs alone, listens to everyone...

The boy is very good.


They are attracted by the opposite personality!
The  girl wants that her lover will be a modern man.
The boy thinks that his lover will become as the mind of his. 
 
They are changing silently
Losing individuality.

Time flows.
Love goes to another address...

YOU You say that I am a nice human being, So I am a nice human being. You enjoy my creations, So I am a creator. You truly love my poetry, So I am a poet. You live into my heart, So my heart is beating. Although I am mortal But you are immortal. SANDIP GOSWAMI, INDIA

When I read your poem you remind me of my pablo neruda himself.You seem to know this girl very well= and the girl knows you. I love these last lines~ 'They are changing silently,losing individuality- Time flows,love goes to another address..These lines are so sad,but yes these things happen when.two lose who they were and become who they are-A favourite-Do you love Neruda! ?He is the best,I fell in love with his words since the first day I read his Saddest Verse poem"!

I love Neruda who is one of the great poets in the world. I respect his fighting spirit. Yes, I know the girls and boys very well and love them so much...I penned the poem for their better tomorrow in Bengali language. It's one of the favorite poems of Bengali readers. I tried to translate it for you...But poor translation...Thank you very much...I am grateful...
