Today, we’re excited to share the fiery poem This Valley of Death is Not My
Country by the revolutionary Bengali poetNabarun Bhattacharya
translated by the award-winning
Somrita Urni Ganguly. In this poem, t
and through his audacious metaphors,
fiery rhetoric and studied images, Bhattacharya
recreates the dream of a world without state-sponsored violence, a socially
just world, one where there is freedom, equality, and dignity for all. We just know you’ll be inspired by
it, so we’re happy to bring it to you.
