Didi’s poetic tribute to mother,cadres

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has paid a tribute to her mother and party workers who died in political violence in the form of a book of poems. Titled ‘Kobita’ (Poems) is a collection of around 60-70 poems that catches Mamata in a melancholic mood as she writes about inevitable death. Her 81-year-old mother Gayatri Devi had passed away last month after prolonged illness. The series of poems express her poetic poignancy “as many party workers had to lose their lives in the last few years while on their way to ‘free’ West Bengal from Left Front’s monolithic rule for more than three decades”. “She has always considered her party,Trinamool Congress,as her family and all party members as her family members. The poems reflect how she views the death of her mother and party workers in a same way,” the source said. She has written another book,‘Poribortan’ (Change),which contains photographs chronicling her political rise.
