Customised agony inside the grave 

Everything is going dark, with the clock continue  it’s ticking poverty getting overspread more and more. Self interest is only getting proclaimed by the society. It’s not what you vociferate only  about the outsiders, it’s a descriptive fervour of some innocent souls getting covered over the stones. Space for meagre getting diminished. The dark cloud…

Pokémon Go: The Bengali Way

Pokémon: a global phenomenon that basically hit the nineties kid population and is still a force to be reckoned with. Most of us would recall pestering our parents to buy us those trading cards, action figures and tazos. Those lunch time fights with our friends at school to trade the best possible pokemon that they…

Outrage and uproar are the order of the day in India now but unfortunately, it’s for all wrong reasons. Today after reading and hearing so much about the media outrage that the NYE incident at Bengaluru has caused, I look back to the same kind of horror which happened with me.  It was one evening…

New year vs নববর্ষ

The city gathered throughout the day around the city’s tourist hotspots and flanked Park Street like some anonymous army ready to take over the fallen castle of 2016. 31st December, a day when people celebrate the end of a year or rather celebrate the beginning of another or maybe bit of both. End of a…

A Penny For Thoughts That Matter..

Imagine if the grasses weren’t green, and the roses weren’t red. Would everything still be the same? Would it be okay ? When the burns aren’t painful enough, the ashes aren’t dry enough, when the memories aren’t pressing enough, or the lies aren’t hurtful enough, everything is still there. Nothing remains when we want it…

A Message From Professor Shanku.

Okay, my good bong friends down on earth; most of you know me. I am the scientist that revolutionized the bong society back in 1965, when my creator Satyajit Ray decided to introduce me to your world, and your world to the magnificent genre of science fiction. Many days, have passed since then – since…

আলোর আধিপত্য

বঙ্গ সন্তান হওয়ার যে অনেকগুলি সুখ আছে তার মধ্যে, ‘বারো মাসে তেরো পার্বণ’ রীতিটির জন্য আমাদের পূর্বপুরুষদের কাছে কৃতজ্ঞ থাকা তা উচিত বৈকি। আবার এইসবের মধ্যে আলোকসজ্জা নিয়ে বিশেষ ভাবনা চিন্তাও অবাক করার মতো। উৎসব মানেই যে আলো তা আর কাউকে আলাদা করে বলে দিতে হয়না, আর সত্যি তো উৎসব মানেই মানুষের ধনাত্মক শক্তির উপাসনা,…

Mahalaya- heralding good times?

The day started early, precisely around 4am in the morning with the familiar smell of caffeine and a happy feeling. Insomnia has its own benefits, as you can get rid from the coils of the python named sleep, you can look around and watch the sky change it’s colour as dawn approaches and feel the…

O! ROSE

The flower  that bloomed, uncertain in the night .   A traveller, it came in his sight ‘Rose’, the redest and brighest of all.   He fell in love  and so did the flower in less than an hour.   Every morning and night, he would water his flower and caress her curvy petals.  …
