Had I been a Director of Films, I would have my Heroines

a poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

From Assam

Introducing indigenous
Tribal, aboriginal heroines

From the Northeast
Lepcha, Bhutia
Nepalese
Gorkha heroines
Himalayan beauties and blondes
Speaking exotic tongues and speeches

Had I
Had I been a director
A director of films
I would have
Would have heroines
From Bhutan, Tibet
Burma
From Kalimpong, Darjeeling
Haridwar, Prayag

My religious heroines
From Benares
Even choosing from foreigners
On visit to temples
Or tourist destinations
Sometimes going all out for
The air-hostesses
Admiring their ravishing beauty

My heroines
How would it be
Chakma heroines
Heroines from Himachal Pradesh
Sindhi heroines
From Junagadh
Kashmiri Pundit girls
Munda heroines
Kasi heroines
Naga beauties
Garo girls
Karbi heroines
Bodo girl
Angami girls
Monpa girls
Ladakhi heroines

For my films
Films
Had I
Had I been
A director
A director
