Quiet Mangalbazar

Bikes honking and people chattering,
There weren’t any, it was mesmerizing.
The surreal beauty of Mangalbazar,
I was stunned, even amazed
!
 
It is a privilege, I must say,
Soaking in the glory of this mystique.
It was as if the fables had come to life,
Until I was hit by a heart sinking dread.
 
The last time I saw this place empty,
Earth was shaking, monuments were crumbling,
Life was a misery, 25th of April 2015
I like the silence, but Mangalbazar; it’s better crowded.
 
When this is all over, I’ll be here once again
Embracing the ever-so-crowded heart of the city!
