swatkat: knight - er, morgana - in shining underwear (Default)
This valley of death is not my country
This arena of gleeful executioners is not my country
This endless graveyard is not my country
This blood soaked slaughterhouse is not my country

- Nabarun Bhattacharya, RIP

(Translated on the fly, apologies for quality. Could not find a translation of the entire poem, so had to make do with the last four lines that I know by heart.)

(PS: Harbart, his landmark 2003 novel, appears to be available in Kindle! I have not read the translation, but Arunava Sinha is a brilliant translator whose works I've enjoyed in the past. Goodreads reveiws, because Amazon doesn't have any.)
