Love poems of an unknown poet found scattered in Odisha train crash site

Love poems of an unknown poet found scattered in Odisha train crash site

Kolkata: There was a poet travelling on one of the crashed passenger trains in Odisha and whose passionate love poems lay scattered unclaimed.

Rescuers were perhaps the first to bring to light sheets of paper scribbled with poems in Bengali professing love.

Poems were recovered when rescuers were rummaging through the belongings to the victims strewn on the tracks beside a mangled coach of the Coromandel Express in Odisha's Balasore district, less than 48 hours after the train crash.

The jottings on torn pages of a diary with sketches of elephants, fish and sun on the other side, were probably written during the leisure time of a passenger whose identity is not known as yet.

"Alpo alpo megh theke halka bristi hoy, chotto chotto golpo theke bhalobasa sristi hoy" (scattered clouds lead to light rains, (while) love blossoms from the little tales we hear)," the handwritten poem said.

Photographs of these pages have gone viral on social media.

Another half finished poem which was on another loose page said "Bhalobeshei toke chai sarakhhon, achis tui moner sathe ..."(With love I need you at all times, you are there in my mind at all time ...) Netizens commented that these were "heart rending", and showed how "life was unpredictable".

Till now no one has come forward to claim the poems or relationship with the poet, whose fate too is unkown, local police officers said.
