I want the explanation of the poem BANGLE SELLERS by Sarojini Naidu. It’s urgent, please!
The poem Bangle Sellers was first published in 1912 by Sarojini Naidu in her collection of poems called “The Bird of Time.”
A group of bangle sellers is on its way to the temple fair to sell their bangles. One of them is the narrator of this poem. The bangle sellers take their bangles to the temple fair to sell them. The bangles are termed as “lustrous tokens of radiant lives”. They symbolise love in people’s lives. The bangles are made for happy daughters and wives. The poet says that some of the bangles are made for the unmarried women and are silver and blue in colour. The bangles made for the bride glow like corn fields radiating in the morning. The bangles glow like the bride’s marriage flame and are rich like her heart’s desires. The bangles are tinkling with ‘luminous’ colours like the bride’s laughter and tears. Some bangles are made for the elderly women who have journeyed a great deal in their life. These bangles are of purpled in colour with gold fleckers. These women have served their household well, cradled their sons and have worshipped the household gods with their husbands beside them.
