Tagore : The place of exile
Mom, the light in the sky is gray; I don't know when it is.
I have no fun playing, so I am here. This is Saturday, it is our rest day.
Let go of your work, mother; sitting on the side of the window, telling me where the Tepanta Desert in the fairy tale is?
The shadow of the rain covered the entire day.
The fierce electric light caught the sky with its claws.
When the dark clouds are banging and the sky is thundering, I always fall into your body with fear.

Mom, I put all my books on the bookshelf - don't ask me to do my homework now.
When I grow up and be as big as my father, I will learn what I have to learn.
