শ্রী অরুন কুমার চক্রবর্তীঃ একটি পরিচিতি

কবি ও বাউল শ্রী অরুন কুমার চক্রবর্তীর জন্ম ১৯৪২ সালে। পেশাগত জীবনে তিনি ছিলেন হিন্দমোটোর গাড়ী কারখানার ইঞ্জিনিয়ার।

এই সময়কার কবিদের অগ্রজপ্রতিম এই মানুষটি এখন হুগলি জেলার চুঁচুড়া নিবাসী। নিবিষ্ট আছেন কবিতা ও বাউল গানের চর্চা আর সংরক্ষনে। কেঁদুলির বাউল মেলায় প্রতিবছর তাঁর দেখা পাওয়া যাবেই তমাল তলার আশ্রমে। অধুনা বিখ্যাত “লালপাহাড়ির দ্যাশে যা” এই গানটি তাঁর এক অনন্য সৃষ্টি। বাড়ির পাশের এক মহুয়া গাছ কে দেখে তাঁর মনে হয়েছিল – এই গাছের উচিত স্থান লাল মাটির দেশ। এই অনুষঙ্গেই এই বিখ্যাত গান লেখা হয়েছিল।

বাউল গানের নিবিষ্ট এই সাধকটির অন্তরমহলের কথা জানতে এক অন্তরঙ্গ আলাপচারিতায় মুখোমুখি হয়েছিলেন আমাদের বন্ধু শ্রী তপন সান্যাল।
