Prayers for Japan II (Tokyo)

Michigan, March 22, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): The strict self discipline and Japan’s hi tech infrastructure has prevented Tokyo from being affected by the recent earthquake and the Tsunami.

Trevi Fountain (Rome, Italy)

Michigan, March 03, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio): The Trevi Fountain Square in Rome reminded me of the college common rooms; young people generally roaming around, friends talking, gossiping and munching food.

নিউ ইয়র্ক (New York City, United States)

Michigan: 01st March 2011: আজ বহু বছর আমি কলকাতা ছাড়া......খুব ‘মিস’ করি আমার এই প্রিয় শহর কে। হোক না ভীড়, তবু ভীষন সুন্দর। তাই যখন নিউ ইয়র্ক শহর কে প্রথম দেখলাম, মনে পড়ে গেল কলকাতার কথা। আর মনে পড়ল ‘রাস্তা চলেছে যত অজগর সাপ, পিঠে তার ট্রাম গাড়ি পড়ে ধুপ ধাপ, দোকান বাজার সব নামে আর ওঠে, ছাতের গায়েতে ছাত মরে মাথা ঠুকে......ট্রাম গাড়ি তো নেই, তবে বিশাল লাক্সারি গাড়ি আর বাস, সব যেন ধাক্কা ধাক্কি করে চলেছে...গায়ে গায়ে সব দোকান, নানা দেশের লোক নানা জিনিস বিক্রি করছে আর গগনচুম্বি সব অট্টালিকা, যাকে নাকি আমরা বলি ‘স্কাইস্ক্রেপারস’...নীল আকাশ প্রায় দেখাই যায় না।
