Your life is made of distant springs and falls,
a straight route is not
what you own
for hurricanes and storms divert your path
to new horizons.

Will you find horseshoe *****, mussels, clams
on the stopovers?
Food awaits you
if the shores are not ravaged
by human greed, ignorance.

Your resilience is written in B95's ordeals,
a mosaic of adventures ingrained in his own cells.

The threads of your trips assemble
the places of Mother Earth connected in its roles;
nothing is detached in the collective harmony of souls.

Red knot shorebird,
peaceful messenger,
icon of strength without rage,
your story is the universal flight of awareness
waiting to be heard.
Red knot shorebirds are endangered birds due to human greed and ignorance. B95 is a survivor who has traveled the moon and halfway back in terms of distance.

कोई तो उड़ चुका परिंदा
वादों में बंधा न यादों में बंधा
मौसम जो बदल गया है
Someone was just migratory bird
Not tied in commitments or in memories
As the season ended now...

It is the time of celebration
for the Good health of our guest!
They arrive at our village a week back,  
Now they are roaming around  
Over the sprawling wetland and grass land
With joy and shindig,
Their call makes everything melodic and wonderful!  
Everyone is happy
They said that
“Visit of the guest indicates there
will be good weather in next summer” !
So they will celebrate for the good health of honey guest
in next full moon night
though   God’s own way !
It is dedicated to the villagers of North East India who take care and celebrate the visit of migratory bird to their villages in winter.
