A Tiger in the Zoo Explanation in Bodo:

He stalks in his vivid stripes
The few steps of his cage,
On pads of velvet quiet,
In his quiet rage.

Explanation in Bodo: 
मोसाया रोखा दागोखौ लाना गोमजोरै थाबायथीङो
आगान्नैसेल’ गावनी फान्जारीयाव,
सिरियै गुरै गादी बादी आयथींजों,
गावनी रागाखौ लाखुमाना ।

He should be lurking in shadow,
Sliding through long grass
Near the water hole
Where plump deer pass.

Explanation in Bodo: 
बियो सायख्लंआव थाखोमाना थागौमोन,
हाग्रा गोलावआव होग्लिनना
दै हाखर सेराव
जेराव मद’ मैफोरा थांलाय-फैलाय खालामो ।

He should be snarling around houses
At the jungle’s edge,
Baring his white fangs, his claws,
Terrorising the village!

Explanation in Bodo: 
बियो न’फोरनी सेर-सेर हंख्रायगौमोन
हाग्रानी गुदी ओन्सोलफोराव,
गावनी गुफुर-गोलाव थायनै हाथायखौ, गावनी आसुगुरखौ दिन्थिना,
गामीखौ गीख्रं’थाव खालामगौमोन !

But he’s locked in a concrete cell,
His strength behind bars,
Stalking the length of his cage,
Ignoring visitors.

नाथाय बियो जोब्थेजाना दं गंसे बाला-अन्थायनी फान्जारीयाव,
बिनि गोहोआ लहाग’न्नी उनाव,
गावनी फान्जारीनी गोलावथीयाव गोमजोरै थाबायना,
नायफैग्राफोरखौ नेवसीयो ।

He hears the last voice at night,
The patrolling cars,
And stares with his brilliant eyes
At the brilliant stars.

बियो जोब्था सोदोब खोनायो हराव,
नायगीदींग्रा गारीफोरनी,
आरो नायहाबहरो गावनी ख्रा-ख्रा मेगनजों
ख्रा-ख्रा हाथरखीफोरखौ ।

Summary of A Tiger in the Zoo in Bodo:


The tiger walks around inside the zoo. It can be seen from far because of its clear stripes. The area of cage is very small for the tiger to roam around. It is very angry inside. But the tiger walks very silently.
मोसाया गोमजोरै थाबायो सिरियै जोबोथ रागा लाना जुनारसालीयाव । मोसाखौ गावनी बिगुरनी रोखा दागोनी थाखाय गोरलैयै नुनो मोनो । मोसाखौ जोब्थेनाय फान्जारीया जोबोथ फीसा ।


If the tiger was to be in the jungle or in its actual habitat. The tiger should hide in shadows. And slide through long grass near a water body to hunt its prey where the fleshy deer will come to drink water.
मोसाया जदी हाग्रायाव थानायमोनब्ला, मोसाया सायख्लंआव थाखोमागौमोन । आरो मद’ मद’ मैफोरखौ हाग्रायाव उन्दुग्लेमना जमना थागौमोन दै हाखर सेराव ।


The tiger should make loud noises at the places where houses are residing near to the jungle. It should make marks on the trees of it’s claws and fangs. And the tiger should terrify the villagers by showing its presence like that.
मोसाया  हंख्रायगौमोन हाग्रा सेराव थानाय गामीनी न’ सेर-सेर । मोसाया गावनी गोलाव गुफुर हाथाय थायनै आरो आसूगूरफोरखौ दीन्थीना गामीयारीफोरखौ सीगीग्लुंगौमोन ।


But the tiger cannot do anything like mentioned in the stanzas 01 and 02. The tiger is locked in a small cell made of concrete. It cannot break the iron bars. Being helpless and knowing no one would help him out, the tiger walks around the cage without paying attention to the visitors.
नाथाय मोसाया जोब्थे जाना दं अन्थायजों दाजानाय फानजारीयाव । मोसानी गोहोआ लहानी जेवराखौ सोरखी हाया । रावनीबो सहाय मोनैखाय, मोसाया नायफैग्राफोरखौ नेवसीनायसै ।


When the day ends, the tiger can only hear the voices of the patrolling cars. The tiger has nothing to do rather than to keep staring at the bright stars into the sky with its sharp eyes at night.
जेब्ला मोनायो, मोसाया जुनारसालीखौ नायथींग्रा गारीनील’ सोदोब खोनायो । मोसाया मावनो थाखाय जेबो गैयैखाय, अख्रांनी गोजों हाथरखीफोरखौ गावनी थोंजोर मेगनजों नायहाबहरो ।
