The Frog and The Nightingale (Poem)
By – Vikram Seth

The poem is a tale set in a wet and muddy area called Bingle Bog, where lived a frog , who was crazy about his singing and incessantly sang from the evening till the morning light. All the other creatures living in the bog found his songs to be most unpleasant and tried to insult him. But the frog was very insensitive and boastful. The frog kept on singing because that was his way of expressing his heart-felt elation.

One day the creatures of the bog were pleasantly surprised to hear a very melodious song sung by a nightingale. The frog was shocked and felt jealous. He wanted to be the undisputed singer of the bog. All the other creatures praised the nightingale’s singing.

The frog was very cunning and introduced himself as the owner of the tree, on which the nightingale sat and sang the beautiful songs. He also boasted that he was a music critic, and also wrote for ‘Bog Trumpet’. The nightingale was impressed that a musician, like Mozart , is taking interest in her singing. When the frog offered to train her for a modest fee, the nightingale felt that her dream had come true. The exploitation of the nightingale began.

The frog would organize concerts and nightingale sang for him. The frog made money from these concerts. He would make her practice, even in the adverse weather. He instructed her to sing passionately and with full force, since that was what the public wanted. Initially a number of creatures flocked to listen to her, but later the crowd dwindled as the nightingale’s songs became a routine, lustreless and her voice seemed tired. The frog would scold and humiliate her for no reason. One day, out of sheer stress and fatigue, the nightingale’s vein burst and she died.

The frog called the nightingale ‘stupid’, ‘nervous’ and ‘without originality’. His ego was now satisfied and once again he became the ‘unrivalled singer’ of the bog.
