1934 : Lal Singh Dil (Caste)

I have been reading quite a bit of Lal Singh Dil translated by Nirupama Dutt. And some of the poems are really stark and lucid, something I have always liked in a poem…the jolt. Here is one from that collection called Caste.

You love me, do you?
Even though you belong
to another caste,
But do you know,
our elders do not
even cremate their dead
at the same place.
