My special one

It might take billion people to complete a world but only you to complete me.She is my Ma,the person who struggled with me throughout my entire life till now…I was born in a conservative family where things were not too smooth,nothing was really my cup of tea,it was from then she stood up for me,paved my path,she is my lady with the lamp,who is always there to show me the right path. She is the one who woke up early in the morning complete her daily chores to take me to school.She used to wait the whole day long for my school to get over,she made me work hard to achieve the goals of my life.And now as I look back I realize the amount of trouble she took to make my world a lot too easier.I don’t know how much I have achieved in life,but without her I am nothing.Photo0260

Ma,an unique word, simple to pronounce,yet the closest person on earth,a divine entity.The only one who can sacrifice her joy for the satisfaction of her children.A protector in all kind.She is one of a kind…If the father is the head of the  family then mother is the crown of that head…….She is the only person to stay on my side even in the cruelest times.She is the reason of my confidence,she is the reason for who I am….my adviser,my mentor….a space too small to hold the love for you.Ma you are indispensible

“Bus Dadu”…an unique personality

•December 19, 2012 • Leave a Comment

It has been so long that I hardly could remember…it was a time when I had all my milk teeth…..but those folded paper origami do remind me of something, something pleasant…something charming.It reminds me of my “Bus Dadu”(Bus Grandpa) a nice anonymous person whom I occasionally met while going to school.

It’s odd to name a person “Bus”….but my child mind couldn’t think of anything better than this….and why not?…we did met in our bus queue! An elderly person with nice thoughts and beautiful heart,who initially coaxed me with lucrative origamies,drawing pencils and eraser…but gradually as we grew closer,I came to know a lot about him..his vast knowledge…his farsightedness and his dedicated works and charity.Photo-0904Photo-0902Photo-0901

The world spins madly on..and so does time.I grew up,got busy with my own life and memories start fading.But few days back,on a very gloomy,cloudy day,when nothing seemed right….I saw a rainbow…which rode me back to my lost childhood days.My dear old Bus Dadu visited our place and spent an ample amount of time,sharing his knowledge with us…creating a sunshine..which elevated my depressive state of mind.

Selfless soul

This is the story of  a naughty boy…naughty indeed…So much so that it’s almost impossible to spend a single day of his life out of mischief.One who always kept himself busy with the most unimportant chores of the  world and surprisingly though these unimportant things turn out to be the most crucial parts…….. Catching sparrows in the study hours and painting it with vibrant colors  until  the home tutor was about to leave…secretly eating desserts and filling the the emptiness with sugar……gobbling food from others plate…….and annoying everyone round were common among them.A child who was always playing round and escaping his studies….a student who never dreamt to score high marks in exams neither have had a high dream!

This has been a long time since I wrote my last post…partly due to the circumstances which made me to do so!It was 1st of November..and I was busily scribbling,preparing for my next post,when the phone rang…I heard my father’s distressed voice on the other side of the line……he was seriously ill..urinating blood.My life seemed to fall apart…..That night was totally nightmare of my life cause no clinic were ready to start the treatment immediately so late at night.But finally we found a solution.And It would have all failed without his help.I am speaking about my maternal uncle “Chotomama” and it was he who came out with his helping hand just in right time.We were rushing all over the streets….in search of a proper clinic….worried,distressed.But I can’t imagine how I could have dealt with it all alone without his assistance.I don’t know how much selfless  and helpful one can be……. of course this maternal uncle of mine sets a live example of open heart.He is the only one who always stay by our side even in the hardest troubles…..And not only just because he is helping us..but how willingly he keep helping every one he come across….makes me awestruck.However I felt so much obliged that I don’t know how to thank him.So,I felt this might be the best way to do it.Thank you Chotomama!

Yes! He was actually that very naughty one in his childhood…..So?Is it that high marks in exam which make a person good?Or is it that kind heart…the generous  self within which makes a person perfect good human being?I vote for the second choice…whats yours?

Hello friend!

Friends……are the companions one can most rely on…….they are the person attached to another by feelings of love…one who can be trusted and one with whom one can share sorrow and happiness both. The word, “friendship”……. the most touchy relation I have ever felt……thanks to those for whom I ultimately felt it’s importance.

Trying to embrace it with open heart…..right from my school going days I have come across many of them…. it’s hard to remember them all….but the tiny sacrifices….unlimited gossips…..fighting over trivial issues…….are hard to forget……the pleasure to have a friend…….is beyond the words to clarify……..Then again,one fine morning I felt the bitter truth……I couldn’t really succeed in having a bosom friend…in all these years……I couldn’t even become ‘best friend’ to any……not really!I have tried…at my best…..But,I keep loosing them from time to time….by and by they get lost…..and never come back….and even if they do…. inexplicably….they can no longer be a closed friend of mine……..looking back at my memory lane….I feel distressed…….the bonding which grew up seemed so fragile……..Sometimes in my leisure I try to find out my flaws…but in vain..

All I need is a pure,unconditional…..friendship…..a friendship which can loom large in my memories…..a friendship to laugh aloud….a shoulder to hide my tears…..a friend who is capable to retain a lingering smile for a lifetime……..

Mixed emotions….the grey part!

Rouvanjit Rawla…the current pop ups in the media….a 13yrs kid of class VIII,La Martiniere student….who has committed suicide on account of being caned by his school teacher for truancy……….and then the story continues…………………However I am not here to say anything about the incident….but to me  it somewhat appeared like a magnified version of the same old story….which was so long swept under the carpet….I am still uncertain about whom to accuse…..but the incident was mournful.

I am an  ex-student of one of the renowned school of Kolkata…and in this stage of my  life…I can’t really relate my school days to be the golden one…..although I can’t deny but reveal my gratitude to my alma mater for whom I am what I am now….still it was not always as cheerful as it should have been…..The strict disciplines….angry rebukes……has taught us to be punctual,well behaved,decent human being….

But the other half of the story??It was equally bitter….and I felt like betrayed…humiliated………..the things turn polluted…the tendency of comparison……partiality….. excessive study pressure…all these lead to  inferiority complex and low self esteem….and it took me a long time to do away with this psychology of mine……however the Secondary examination was a life turner for me….and I came out with flying colors and I am grateful to my former teachers for this bright academic which followed….

I was admitted to another renowned institution for my +2..but this time I was put into a completely different environment….the atmosphere so very different from the previous one…so much encouraging…and beaming with happiness…..the system a bit loose but far more liberal..I felt that I am finally treated like a respected  individual..with love and care……I was astonished to discover that we never have had a parent teacher meeting where the teacher would carry out a one sided conversation whose main motive is to constantly accusing the student like a criminal in the witness box…..instead they  have gone for a student parent teacher counselling session where a thoughtful discussion was carried out to improve certain backlogs one have…..gradually my individuality starts growing…..I became far more confident…….and this is perhaps the reason you can find me in this webpage confidently typing my feelings….my emotions…..and  I am grateful to my alma mater for that………

Being molded in this mixed society…..I really don’t know which one is a correct way to built up a true, honest, decent, human being…….I am perplexed………..

A wink of an eye………….

Perhaps this is the spot having the best view at our college……..and this is from where I’ve taken the snap!How divine the nature can be…………but sometimes things go unnoticed!! The beauty cannot be revealed in words…………………….the moment met me once and then it was lost…but it will last for a lifetime………………………………..it makes me feel high……………..Cloud with a silver lining……the rays of hope showing the path even in bemused phase of life….

Bapu the great!
