Intellectual Gifts of a Teenager Poet

Main Article Content

Aju Mukhopadhyay


The poet is a teenager school going pert girl; always alert of her surroundings, of the presence of her friends and others around her own abounding presence. She knows well enough what the elders talk about her. By her inquisitiveness and good reading habits she knows more or less what many greats have already spoken about human life, of what is desirable and what is not. A precocious girl endowed with some wisdom, speaks about the usual happenings of life and our expectations from it. Highly ambitious, she takes up the cudgel to challenge her colleagues and resolves to prove her worth. On the way she teaches herself what needs to be done, makes promises, sometimes advises addressing others in neutral voice; didactic. She knows that she is being challenged for repeating what others have observed in their maturity; many of them were great. It requires her defending herself; thus begins the dialectic process which is a constant process of life, asserts a philosopher like Hegel.
