E.F Oaten's poem on Subhas

The Prof. Oaten who had mistreated students in Presidency College, who was the cause of Subha's expulsion from Presidency, had written a poem year's later -

Did I once suffer, Subhas, at your hands?

Your patriot heart is stilled, I would forget!

Let me recall but this, that while as yet

The Raj that you once challenged in your land

Was mighty; Icarus-like your courage planned

To mount the skies, and storm in battle set

The ramparts of High Heaven, to claim the debt

Of freedom owed, on plain and rude demand.

High Heaven yielded, but in dignity

Like Icarus, you sped towards the sea.
