Tandoor House and a Bengali Poem

Today I, Shusmita, Ahyan and Nitol had lunch in Chunnu Bhai's new restaurant Tandoor House in the same complex in Fremont where we come to play bowling sometimes. I was so happy to see the spacious, neat & clean restaurant and eating the delicious shrip tandoori and tandoori lamb chop that I wrote a yelp review instantly after returning back home. While I was cleaning up my old papers yesterday, I found an old poem written by Saiful Karim in my farewell from Therap BD. I thought to write it down using my newly discovered Quillpad tool. So here it is.

আশিক ভাই 

কবি সাইফুল করিম রচিত 

নামটি আশিক, বড়ই রসিক, 
সে নাকি এক বিশ্ব প্রেমিক, 
লম্বাটে মুখ, বাপ রে কী ঠাট; 
রাখে আবার ফ্রেঞ্চ কাট| 
মন টি ভালো, বড়ই উদার; 
হেল্প চাইলেই করেন দেদার| 
একটি যদি প্রশ্ন সুধাও 
আনসারের সাথে কিছু ফাও| 
বেড়াতে খুব ভালোবাসে, 
যখন ফোনে কল আসে, 
বান্ধবী কে সংগে নিয়া, 
ফেন্টাসি বা আশুলিয়া| 

[2005 এর মার্চ এ লেখা]
