Translated from the Bihar-Hindi to the English by Mridula Nath Chakraborty
Ran the gamut of love talk from their side
Even as they kept sowing hatred in the soil
Inside Outside Ceaseless
They nurtured hatreds one-sidedly
We could not reach them one bit
Whether we extend love towards them or hate?
It was all always already decided by them
Nothing from our end at all!
They were our judge all the while our transgressors too
Where lies our potential to hate?
We remain but just duty-bound
To respond on their hatreds
Musafir Baitha and Mridula Nath Chakraborty
Just a duty-bound Hatred | कर्तव्य भर नफ़रत
