मियां कविताएं-1

Muslims of Bengali origins are called Miya in Assam. These people have been at the receiving end of violence and exclusion. They have suffered violence and social discrimination over. long period of time. It gave rise to a protest literature, especially poetry called Miah Poetry. In recent times, after the NRC process got under way, the issues confronting this section of Assamese society became even sharper. A new breed of hard hitting poetry emerged which was popularised by the Social Media. The poems bring out the deep anguish and alienation of Miyas of Assam. The political element of resistance poetry however does not in any way diminish its poetic aesthetics. Translation of Miyah poetry into Hindi has been done in a series of three blogs. Here is the first of the series.
