The stirring string of a Native Tongue.

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart."
---Nelson Mandela---

As we celebrate International Mother Language Day, with much reverence and fervor we do travel back to our roots, our heritage, lineage and culture and hope to preserve all the glory and richness of our ethnicity contributing to the melting pot that the world is Today. One can feel strongly about his ancestral land and language even though he is continents and oceans apart from his native land. Here is how a string of words stirred a soul in the heart of Manhattan, New York. It didn't have to be through a speech in a seminar, in a symposium or in a literary convention of a forum. It was through a heart- to- heart talk.

A FRUITFUL ESCAPADE‏

The merry Christmas and Happy New Year signs are quickly replaced by Happy Valentine's Day signs that lures You to some more chocolatey sins, as if all those cookies and Christmas Cakes have not made you a sinner enough. But then you come across some reality checks with signs that makes you laugh out loud as you read ‘God if you cannot make me skinny this year please make my friends fat’. Suddenly the sugar rush gives way to a sugar crash. Now everyone wants to shed the extra pounds they have blissfully gathered from those cakes in the last couple of months. One after all has to get ready for summer and for the much sought after thin and lean look. It's funny to find people carefully reading every label before they even open a bag of chips.

শরীর

এবং মন মেপে কথা বলছেন সুন্দরীরা।
কিন্তু সত্যেও নির্জনতা ঘাসের মত থাকে। 

অপরিচিত

কাছের মানুষের সাথেই অপরিচিতের মত মিশছি

LOSS OF INDIVIDUALITY

Pick up ‘vegetables and women’ in the same breath, that’s your job

Subservient. Sidekicks all and sundry.
