An Equal Music...






And into that Gate they shall enter,
And in that House they shall Dwell,
Where there shall be no Cloud nor Sun,
No Noise nor Silence, but one Equal Music,

No Fears nor Hopes, but one Equal Possession,
No Foes nor Friends, but one Equal Communion and Identity,
No Ends nor Beginning, but one Equal Eternity...
--
From the book 'An Equal Music' by Vikram Seth
The poem is written by John Donne


I Do Not Know How the Old Parsi Land Lady of Marine Lines, Ms Emy Mistry is doing these days... Or Whether She is at all alive... I lost touch with her... the above poem I found in the closet of the room where I was stuffed in as a Paying Guest for a little over  a month's troubled stay in Bombay in 2011 where I had gone for a job with IRCTC which didn't last long. The Poem was inspiring so I kept it without asking anyone. Because it was lying there unattended and I was sure it would have gone down the drains in some time...

Changing faces of the Historic Town I have Lived in... Chandannagar

Some changing faces of my beloved town of Chandannagar clicked on, 9th April, 2017. Ram Navami procession comprising of armed men, children and even women erupted in the streets dancing and dangling weapons violently while Sound Boxes with DJ impacts and chants "Jai Shri Ram" intoxicated the air.  Hinduism definitely doesn't portray a militant Religion rather it depicts Universal Love and acceptance. It depicts tolerance. Hinduism never proclaims to be the only path to be followed and is widely regarded for the same. In the land of Sri Ramakrishna, Swami Vivekananda and Sri Chaitanya, these sights were not very pleasant. Lord Rama did take up arms to fight and establish Dharma against Ravana however there are a lot many other facades to his personality. Sadly even today, Religion is so Politically motivated...

















আমার নামমাত্র দেশের বাড়ির স্মৃতি।

আমবাগান, পূর্বপুরুষের ভিটের ভগ্নস্তুপ, পুকুর,মরাই, জমি জায়গার রেষারেষি। এই নিয়ে আমার নামমাত্র দেশের বাড়ির স্মৃতি।
