A passerby does not take a siesta,
Nor lovers come to kiss hiding behind me.

I Nearly Died

“Who the hell are you?” they said. Finally, I swore on them and they shut their mouths up. I felt so powerful. When the bus’s last station came and it halted to a complete stop, all passengers got off, we also got off from the bus only to discover someone from behind hit me so hard on my head that the whole town whirled around my head.

आँधि

अन्न्याय त त्यतिबेला हुन्छ
जतिबेला आँधिले एक दुई ज्यान
बाँकि राखेर जान्छ
गुँडबाट बचेरा निमोठेर लान्छ
प्रीयसिको फोक्सो चुँडालेर भाग्छ।

SARANGI

I cannot let go of his sight. His spontaneous song spills over on the themes of betrayed lovers, tragedy of common man and the story of Ramayana, Mahabharata and Muna Madan. I listen to each of them in awe and curiosity and cannot control the tears rolling down my cheeks.

मृत्यु !

उ जति बेला पनि आउन सक्छ, 

तिम्रो प्रस्वासमा आएर अल्झिन सक्छ 

तिमी सुतेको बेला, सुरुप सुरुप चिया पिएको बेला 

बिहान घाम उदाएको बेला, गुंधुली साँझमा 

चरा चिरबिराएको बेला, 

जुनी जुनी बाच्ने कसम खाएको बेला, 

बादल मडारिएको बेला, 

दिन खुलेको बेला, 

घरमा गाई ब्याएको बेला

Joy or Pleasure

To be in joy is to be in pain. “Tears of joy” the phrase contains some pain. Even “sexual pleasure” does contain some pain that turns out to be a state of happiness and satisfaction. After a person cries in pain that brings “catharsis” as Aristotle says in his definition of tragic drama. Similarly, if so is the case, catharsis is produced after ejaculation which is kind of death leading to life.
