Naxalite Poet Lal Singh Dil: A Drawing and a Poem

lal-singh-2.jpg

when the labourer woman
roasts her heart on the tawa
the moon laughs from behind the tree
the father amuses the younger one
making music with bowl and plate
the older one tinkles the bells
tied to his waist
and he dances
these songs do not die
nor either the danceā€¦

Lal Singh Dil
