Magnitude~by Swapna Behera



Magnitude – –
Swapna Behera

Ask a soldier
the magnitude of the vow
His wife’s broken bangles will reply

Ask the Chottu in the Restaurant
The magnitude of poverty
The scar on his cheek will reply

Ask the farmer in the Mandi
The magnitude of profit and loss
His rotten tomatoes will reply

Ask the single mother
The magnitude of solitude
Sweating of her forehead will reply…

Ask the paper note
The magnitude of Price Index
It will hop thousand hands with joy ..

Ask the life
The magnitude of love
The death will reply – – – –

Poem published in my book “Beyond the Galaxy ”
