A conservationist's dream and romance...

The setting was exact
As once Bhibhuti Bandopadhyay tracked
When writing a longish thing...
A tale of a wanderer going to the forest,
To an African deep...
Infested wild
By tigers,
Snakes,
Leopards,
Chimps,
Lionesses...

Such a situation arose
Here
Infront his eyes
Adventure running into his youthful blood...
An Edward James kind...
Man versus the Wild...

Not a cruel thing...
Not only of fighting...
And surviving...
Like a theory of Darwin...

But a loving one...
That sense of romantic gesture
Which took once a boy as far
As African rain forest...

That romantic idea
Of finding beauty of God
In pristine nature...
The mother...

That big Love
Which made Edward
Into an enthusiast
Of preserving the wild,
Not killing...

A conservationist's dream...
And an inescapable romance...
That arrived one rain filled frog croaking
Trees soaking
Late evening...
To him.
