Durga Prasad Panda occupies a prominent position in Oriya literature. Primarily a linguist, Panda also writes poetry in English and sometimes translates Oriya poems into English and vice versa. His famous works are ‘Sawarani’ and ‘Rays’. In the present poem, “Polythene Bag”, he touches on the pressing issue of polythene bag and the evil consequences it has on environment. The strength of the poem is the correlation between human emotion and a mundane thing like a polythene bag.

‘Hurt’ is such a strange polythene bag
which never gets
dissolved into the earth’s crust

When touched it makes a squeaky noise,
when burnt it exudes a pungent smell,
when left to itself
it pollutes the environment.

Just like the polythene bag
his ‘hurt’ too melts down
o with a little touch of warmth.

But deep inside the grief’s garbage bin
far away from everyone’s gaze
the germs of the disease
keep on growing

The polythene bag
remains buried within

Only the pain caused by the ‘hurt
keeps coming back
again and again.
