Jibanananda Das – The Greatest Modern Poet of Bengal in the Post-Tagore Era
One of his translators, Clinton B. During his lifetime, only seven volumes of his poems were published.
Plems his death, it was discovered that apart from poems Das wrote several novels and a large number of short stories. His unpublished works are still being published. Das died on 22 October ; eight days after he was hit by a tramcar. The witnesses said that though the tramcar whistled, he did not stop and got struck.
Some deem the accident as an attempt at suicide. Looks light is fading out—wonder is waning all the more.
Is the sky blue as it was? All day I inevitably encounter a cat here and there In the shadow of trees or out in the sun, around the pile of fallen leaves; I catch sight of him, deeply engrossed like The wheel-cart idly rolls laden with ppoems straw —the late-noon sunshine fades The birds: There is meaning for some, may be for all—may be a perfect meaning.
Yet I hear the white sound of wind-driven birds In the water Had you been around tonight we could talk; —a world of Hijal Shirish stars grass breeze all surround. But all our thoughts feeling emotions are filtered through reasons and logic, and made to Last night it was an intensely windy night— a night of countless stars; An expansive wind played around my mosquito net; At times billowing it like the belly of a monsoon sea, At times Thought we both are Egyptian mummies.
Slumbering from morn to evening.
Ah Kite Poem by Jibanananda Das – Poem Hunter

Some of them sporting watch on their wrist. The hands of hour Once to the stars — once to the fields I cast my winkless eyes. The scent of paddy disappeared from life when who knows; Like the meadows laden with haystacks here and there Quietly; It is late — so very late at night.
His wife lay beside—the child therewith; Enough she had slept; — then one day she left for a far — away cloud. Has Sarojini travelled that far, where — This autumn night the tale of Subinoy Mustafi crosses my mind. This all-knowing young man had the amazing power of making the cat and the mouse held between its jaws laugh all at once The Cat — Jibanananda Das All day I inevitably encounter a cat here and there In the shadow of trees or out in the sun, around the pile of fallen leaves; I catch sight of him, deeply engrossed like The Great Twilight — Jibanananda Das The wheel-cart idly rolls laden with golden straw —the late-noon sunshine fades The birds: Windy Night — Jibanananda Das Last night it was an intensely windy night— a night of countless stars; An expansive wind played around my mosquito net; At times billowing it like the belly of a monsoon sea, At times Wristwatch — Jibanananda Das Tonight, from all sides, many a cloud becoming chilly by the grudge of fusillade from a cannon.
