Contemporary Indian Literature in English Translation

Write a note on the significance of the title of the poem ‘Mother Serious’


Everything you need to know is included inside the title. Here is a Telugu poem on motherhood that has been translated into English. To describe the status of someone who is critically ill, Telugu speakers frequently use the word’serious,’ which means “very serious.” The poet’s realistic and compelling depiction of the old mother’s emotional pain throughout her final illness captures the agony of the elderly woman. In this scene, the tropes are intertwined to create a stressful environment. Because of the emotion that is associated with the statement, it is easier to coin a new idiom than it would otherwise be. When I hear the phrase “Mother Serious,” I am reminded of the telegraphic language in which it is used to communicate.

‘ She has been bedridden for a long period of time and, according to the poem’s narrator, is looking forward to her death.

The speaker, in an affecting “abbee,” notifies her son that she no longer want to continue living. When he didn’t inquire, she assured him that she would supply him with an answer (explanation). She is acutely aware of the sense of impending doom in the air. Everyone has been wishing and praying for the finest of all possible worlds. Their inquiries have a melancholy hollowness to them, which she notices. A part of them is waiting for something like “that,” something to take their minds off of the misery of expecting her dying. Suggestiveness is a big tool in her arsenal of tricks, and she uses it frequently. She then directs her contempt towards her son, her fingers digging into her back as if it were a compulsion she couldn’t control. She tells him that he is forcing her to swallow not just water, but the entire river of existence and life, which he is forcing her to consume. His attention is drawn to her by the sluggish ooze that pours out of her eyes.

At this time, an observer notices that the old woman looks to be unable to make a choice on her own behalf. The next thing you know, everyone is being instructed to be silent in case the old woman overhears their conversations.Nissim Ezekiel’s poem The Night of the Scorpion is an example of a poet who adopts this style in his writing.


With every movement that the scorpion made

His poison moved in Mother’s blood, they said.

May the sum of evil

balanced in this unreal world

against the sum of good

become diminished by your pain

may the poison purify your flesh

of desire, and your spirit of ambition,

they said, and they sat around

on the floor with my mother in the centre

the peace of understanding on each face.


                                                                                      …………..      …………       ………….

The mother, the poem’s protagonist, continues her inner monologue:

‘No need to move

to open my eyes.

My ears like twin-boats

carry the weight of

your words.

The choice of the metaphor “boats for ears,” which suggests the mother’s mental load, is notably unique. As a result, the mother is brought back to the moment she breastfed him while he was still asleep.Furthermore, the first line: I don’t have the desire any more to live on, abbee!

The lines in the translation you examined are:

I have no wish to live any longer, dear son! as the fifth and sixth lines.

She wonders if she’s ever seen so many different individuals in such a short period of time as she opens her eyes.After that, here’s another one: The son asks his mother to name the persons standing around her so he can see how aware she is. Her son has given her a ‘brain teaser’ to solve while she’s sinking, and she chastises him for it. Since her pillow and heart have been filled with her dreams, she proposes that he seek advice from them. Together, the pillow and the heart will serve as a plate for all of her problems.She longs for her own son to understand how miserable it is for her to be unable to move a single limb and have just her ears remain functional.There is a sense of impending doom in the mother’s final remarks. The poem’s authenticity is enhanced by the poem’s extensive use of metaphors and similes.

Poems, according to Nirmala in an interview, are meant to provoke thinking and upheaval (in the mind). Figures of speech aren’t the only thing used to convey meaning. Phrases like “ears like twin boats loaded with the weight of words they deliver” or “as fast (readily) as providing suck when the baby in slumber rolls over” are new. It’s not unusual for a phrase like this to catch the reader’s attention and leave a lasting impression.
