Babyland

A translation of Laishram Samarendra’s poem of the same title, which was originally published in Khul Amagi Wari (1985)


In the land of the baby
Everybody is a baby
All babies — emotionally and psychologically ||

The wooden water tap in the land of baby
It has no water
The wooden power grid in the land of the baby
It has no electricity ||

An old man was hit on the head with a slinging stone
He had laughed at the babies
He had bothered the babies
The babies were told the truth ||
