This Beautiful Poem Will Resonate With Anyone Living In A Place They Aren't From
"I wish... I too had hills to set free, and a land to call my own."
Belonging is a poem by Chandrajit Bose, a professor at Durama College in Meghalaya, and was recently featured by the online magazine Raiot. Bose, a Bengali by birth, speaks of residing in the beautiful city of Shillong in Northeast India, and the alienation often experienced by a non-native resident.
The poet gave BuzzFeed India permission to recreate the poem, which will resonate with everyone who makes a different land their home.
