As I read through my mother’s status about my grandmother’s beauty and her elegant behavior. I immediately look at my mother and wonder she is no less, exquisite and appealing. How well she dresses and her deeds really influence me. I hope one day or someday, I can be that dainty young woman, just like my mother

I recently joined a workshop, in my college- a public speaking course. I was told by my political science teacher, to join the course, which would help me in the long run. Initially, I was extremely happy and curious. But then the wind blew in a different direction. Indeed, it is a very good workshop, organized by experienced people. The only thing, which disappoints me, is the schedule.  HA HA!  I am a lazy girl. As per the time table of my college, “Thursdays and Sundays “, are the non working days. Despite this, I have to attend this course on every Thursdays. This is the month of April, really hot in Calcutta. Under this scorching heat, I have to travel. Tomorrow (10th of April, 2014), I have to make a prepared speech on “Eve Teasing “. From the morning till now, I had to mug up the entire speech, just for inspiring them.   On the other hand, it’s very interesting to note that, I am overcoming my stage fright and now I can face the audience with confidence. The motive is not to win a match, but to learn and experience. So that I can understand my mistakes and know from it.
  A tough call is coming at the end of the session, which is the main showcase on 26th of April.  . A show, where all the parents, relatives and friends of each student’s, will come to see our performance.  For the first time, in my life, I am getting an opportunity to take a part in a competition. I am excited as well as tense to face this tough call. I hope, with full confidence, I can give a speech, which would inspire each and every person in the audience. Specially my family and relatives.

Finally I got what I wanted to achieve. The show case went very well and at the end, I got a trophy, for outstanding improvement in public speaking.  My parents and relatives were amazed and since then, I believe that, anything which you want to achieve is easy to get, only if you work hard.

Remember the day, when you took me to a place, away from the cramped city. I remember of sitting by your side, under the moon-light, right beside the ultra marine sea . The softly lit blue lamps and  the dinner under the blue tent, stirred up my mood. Also the blues, which created a jazzy background for the evening. Since then i have fallen in love with the color, blue. This is because it reminds me of you and the evening, we spent together. I still crave for the serene blue ambience of that day, created by you and your love.

I wait for the night, to see the beautiful silver light, exposed by the moon lady. Under the moon-light, I am standing by your side, holding those big strong hands, tightly. This is the time , which I’ve been waiting for many years, to ask me to dance. The moon-light makes me feel crazy and your presence by my side, makes me feel shy. Maybe because of your love, which creates a beautiful evening.  I want to keep on dancing and hold your hands, until we grew old . The world needs us to grow old together but somehow, there is a big distance, which is being created. Please my love, try to avoid this distance and be with me, until I shut my eyes till the end of life.

When I was 10, I had a best friend called Reemi. She was bubbly, charming, adorable and enthusiastic. We used to play and used to stay together, quite often. Each time, I used to spend with her , was memorable. Both her parents used to take us, to a play ground, next to my home. Suddenly there was a bad news, which took place. Since then the entire situation changed. The parents got divorced and the marriage fell apart. My friend then became, sad, lonely and an introvert. The beautiful smile which I used to see on her face went away.
Now, when I was 18, there was a little boy, named Rahul. The boy was 10 years and resided, next to my home. Most of the time, he seemed to be anxious. Both his parents, was busy. The little boy was left under the supervisation of the ayah. Almost every day I used to see him, walking with the ayah, to his school and for an evening walk. But when this child, was left alone with his parents, at night. He felt lonely and couldn’t communicate.  No matter, how he tried his best to capture their attention, he failed miserably. Slowly, he then engaged himself in delinquent activities.
When I turned 21, one day I saw a little girl , with her maid , in the park. They were enjoying a great time together. The maid frantically showed her a butterfly. She told in Bengali “dekho dekho, ekta projapoti”, but there was no response. The child was blank and couldn’t associate, with the Bengali term.  I was actually shocked to see that, because she was not being able to identify, her mother-tongue.
So, when someone reads the above stories, it can be analyzed that these children are suffering problems, arising from broken homes, loneliness, and neglect.

This is a result , due to the emergence of nuclear family Then they become delinquents, arrogant, self-centered and suffer from learning disabilities and identity crisis.  Therefore, those who are young and will be parents , at sometime and those who are already parents , should create a balance between a professional and personal life.. The child’s personality development starts from the family, where he/she is being nurtured, taught values and the meaning of love and belongingness.  Today, our children are the investment of future, for the development of mature  citizens , they require their family’s support .

spring's benevolence..

 I went out with my relative to buy something  and on my way i could feel the fresh air , blowing around me. It is the spring season, one of my favorite . It is neither hot nor cold and i reckon that the rainy season won't disturb by knocking the door of this beautiful mixed weather . Another beautiful thing about this weather , is the festival of holi in India.

This is a festival , in which people play with different colors . It is the time during which there are no discrimination between caste, religion,etc. Yes, there is an  unity in this festival, which brings happiness all around India.

I am now sitting and writing my blog in my room , where a window is open and  i can feel the air passing through it . It is an amazing feeling , right now. At times , i go up to my rooftop with my i-pod , whenever i want to stay alone . That is the best time, during which i  can drown  myself totally into the music  and then imagine myself ,  going somewhere far far away . Yes , an utopian feeling because that is beyond  reality. But ,  i love that feeling of mine, anyway !

While listening to Leonard Cohen, it gives a chill all over our mind and the body. His songs comprises of less instrumental music and more of the words. The only instrumental music one can hear is the “VIOLIN”. Every song of his is like a story. Just like an author who narrates his entire story through his writings, likewise Cohen   narrates the scene through his songs. This differentiates him from other singers. Listening to his songs it feels like he himself is narrating his life.
Leonard Cohen is a songwriter- singer, a poet, novelist and a musician. He was born on 21 September, 1934. His works explores the significant areas like religion, love, sexuality, and personal relationships. He dealt with American “ROCK AND ROLL”, “HALL OF FAME”. He is also a companion of the order of Canada. One important feature which can be studied from his work is that his entire career deals with poems, stories about real life, religion and love life. It sounds all real. Hence, this enriches his music work. There was one failure in his career of becoming an efficient writer because of financial crisis. Hence, he had to travel to United States to pursue his career as a folk music singer- songwriter. One of his famous songs is “SUZZANE” which became a hit of Judy Collins who is also an American songwriter and a singer. His couple of famous albums was “SONGS FROM A ROOM” and “SONGS OF LOVE AND HATE”, produced in Nashville by the producer called Bob Johnston who had helped Cohen to achieve the spare sound that he’d been after in his first album.


This song is associated with Cohen’s life. At first the song was a poem in 1966 which was been translated into a song by Judy Collins and further it was being recorded by Leonard Cohen for his album called “SONGS OF LEONARD COHEN”.   In this song, Cohen had a “PLATONIC RELATIONSHIP” with Suzanne Verdal who   was the girlfriend of a Quebec sculptor, named Armand Vailancourt.    The lyrics of the song describes about rituals that they used to enjoy whenever they were together. Suzanne used to call Cohen at her apartment by the harbor at Montreal.


The entire song has been set up in the harbor in Montreal near Suzanne’s apartment. She used to serve tea and oranges to Cohen, which was brought from China.  They used to walk around Old Montreal past the church of “NOTRE-DAME-de-BON- SECOURS, where sailors were blessed before heading out to the sea.   


Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
Therefore, each of his song revolves around his real life. Hats off to this person, who beautifully shares his personal life through each of his work of songs.   I love all of his songs, specially “FAMOUS BLUE RAINCOAT” and “HALLELUJAH”.
