Elders

Sayak Roy Chowdhury

They talk about people

They talk about home.

They argue on their fate,

Sports, politics and drainage system.

Moreover, the monsoon has delayed

By 13 days this year.

Their children are weak in vernacular

Their parents are weak in sensibility

And they have been weak in calculations

All the time.

So they are being deceived

Or are they dodging deceptions?

They have seen the worse days.

They have trudged the harder way.

Indeed. And their stories are all told

Long before they could finish them.

But now…

Now they are keeping secrets.
