The Crucial Moment - A short story by Dr. Ratan Lal Basu

Dr.Ratan Lal BasuTHE CRUCIAL MOMENT

Short Story by Dr. Ratanlal Basu

The crucial moment – lurking menacingly behind the overhanging veil of smog, stretching slowly out its awesome tentacles like a gigantic octopus and waiting patiently to pounce upon its prey. I’m ensnared, would in no time be drawn into the fold of the monster. The horror shoots up my spine, oozes out and encompasses the ambience. It’s there in the pale yellow of the building, wavering against the mellow dusk light beyond the veil of smog. I’m inescapably caught like a fish hooked tightly. Like the poor fish I would writhe, squirm, jump, circle and struggle by all conceivable means to ineffectually let go of the hook and more I struggle more firmly would the hook get riveted in me. As a last resort I might probably try to break the line by running away fast and the demon, like a deft angler, would give line until I wear off all my ability to move any further and then the final pull would drag me along limp into the fathomless horror. I could have dived into it right away and rid the agony of waiting, but the abiding horror failed me. It’s silly, I thought; I’ve brains unlike the fish and I know fully well I’ve to encounter it eventually ...


Environment & Ecology in Kautilyas Arthasastra and their Modern Relevance - Dr Ratan Lal Basu

Dr.Ratan Lal Basu

Recent awareness and in many cases fuss about environment and ecology arose only since the middle of the twentieth century. In fact, the current wave of environment awareness got a fillip only after the United Nations Conference on Human Environment held in 1972 at Stockholm (Sweden), and the matter gained further importance after the Earth Summit held in 1992 at Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). However during the early 20th century Rabindranath Tagore dealt in detail with various aspects of environment (and in a more coherent way than the present day piece meal analysis) in various writings.


পণ্ডিত দূরে থাক সাথে নিয়ে ব্যাকরণ - অলকা সান্যাল (Pandit Durey Thako) - A Bengali Poem by Alaka Sanyal

পণ্ডিত দূরে থাক

অলকা সান্যাল

পণ্ডিত দূরে থাক সাথে নিয়ে ব্যাকরণ
এ যেন কে খুলে নিল ভাষাটার আবরণ
শব্দরা কেঁদে মরে, ছন্দরা অসহায়
একটু যত্ন পেলে হেসে হেসে দোল খায়।
ভুলে গেলে চলবে না ভাষাটা যে মাতৃ
যে দেশেই থাকি নাকো আমাদের ধাত্রী।

তেন্ডং পাহাড়ের অপ্সরা
The Angel of Tendong Mountain

রতন লাল বসু
By Ratan Lal Basu

রোজকার মতই অনিমেষ সাতসকালে কফি খেয়েই বেরিয়ে পড়েছিল সিগারেট ধরিয়ে আনমনে পাহাড়ের কোল ঘেঁষে হাঁটছিল। চারিদিকে কুয়াশার মায়ালোক, আধো অন্ধকারে পাহাড়ের কুয়াশা মাখা গাছপালাগুলোকে ভূতুড়ে মনে হচ্ছে। হঠাত্জঙ্গলের ভিতর থেকে মেয়েটা ছুটতে ছুটতে নেমে এল। হিন্দি নেপালী মিশিয়ে বলল, তোমাকে আজ আমাদের মুলুকে নিয়ে যাব। তুমি বাংগালী শুনে বুবা তোমাকে দেখতে চেয়েছে। গুরু রিন্পোচে বাংগালী থিও। তস্কা লাগি বুবা তোমাদের খুব শ্রদ্ধা করে। ......
