Bengali Meaning of The Sea

সমুদ্র একটা ক্ষুধার্ত কুকুর,
রাক্ষুসে আর ধূসর
তীরে সে গড়াগড়ি দেয় দিনভর।
তার ঝনঝন দাঁতে আর রুক্ষ চোয়ালে চেপে
সে কুরেকুরে খায় প্রহরের পর প্রহর ব্যেপে
লম্ফঝম্প করতে থাকা পাথর,
আর ‘হাড়, হাড়, হাড়!’
বিলাপ করে অতিকায় সাগর-কুকুর
তার পিচ্ছিল থাবা চেটে চেটে।
আর যখন রাতের হাওয়া গর্জায়
আর ঝোড়ো মেঘে টলমল করে চাঁদ,
সে দু’পায়ে লাফায় আর নাক টানে আর গন্ধ শোঁকে,
তার ভেজা শরীর ঝাড়ে খাড়া পাথরের বুকে,
আর গর্জন করে আর হাঁক পাড়ে দীর্ঘ উচ্চনাদ।
এই কাতর
বৈশাখ বা জ্যৈষ্ঠ মাসের স্তব্ধ দিনে তবে,
এমনকি বালিয়াড়ির তৃণরাও যবে
বাজায় না আর তাদের সুর তীক্ষ্ণ রবে,
দু’থাবার মাঝে মাথা পেতে
সে শুয়ে থাকে বেলে সৈকতে,
এত শান্ত; এত শান্ত, সে নাক ডাকায় কোনোমতে।

Activity 8(b)

Write a letter to your younger brother advising him to be kind to animals.

Dear Vishwaroop,

Hope your studies progressing well. Today I will tell you about how to behave with the animals. you have learned that sympathy for living creatures is the great virtue of man. I flinch to watch the news on the TV that a few human girls beat to death 13 dogs. Sometimes I watch naughty boys throw stones at monkeys. That is very bad. I say this to you because you should never do this unkind act. Animals are resources of our nature. They the keep balance of our earth and they have the equal right to live with freedom as we human beings have. you should always be kind to them. Please give them food and rejoice yourself to see them. Nurse them if they are affected by diseases.
No more today. Best of luck.

Yours ever
Your name
