সাহিত্যে  আধুনিকতা

পলাশ দে

      আজকাল সাহিত্যচর্চাটা খুব একটা দেখা যায় না।বিশেষ করে আমাদের বাংলা সাহিত্যের উপর।কথাটা বলতে দেরী হলেও এর একটা সুদীর্ঘ পরিকল্পনা আছে ভিতরে ভিতরে।বাইরে এর প্রকাশ না ঘটলেও নয়।বাংলা লেখায় আজ যে সমস্ত কবিতা ও গল্প দেখা যায়,তাতে আধুনিকতার ছাপ যে লেগে গেছে,তা বলার অপেক্ষা রাখে না।গল্পতেও তাই।কিন্তু এর রস ও কাহিনীগুলো যেন কোথাও হারিয়ে যাচ্ছে প্রতিটি লেখার সৃষ্টির সাথে সাথে।আজকাল বিভিন্ন সাহিত্য প্রেমিকের মনে এ বিশ্বাস প্রচুর ভাবে জমে উঠেছে যে কবিতা লেখায় কিংবা গল্প লেখায় যদি প্রতিকী শব্দের সাথে রূপকের কথা দিয়ে ঘুরিয়ে পেঁচিয়ে কিছু লেখা যায় তবে সেটাই হবে আসল আধুনিকতার কবিতা এবং গল্প।এর সাথে পাঠকের মনের কিংবা রুচির কোন মিল কিংবা সম্পর্ক থাকুক বা নাই থাকুক তাতে সাহিত্যিকদের কোন যায় আসে না।

Tamilnadu (India)

We were on the second leg of our fortnight long trip to Tamilnadu. This southern state of India had already given us an extensive idea about the grand structures that this region could boast of. Now it was our turn to visit the mountains, the Nilgiris to be precise, and experience the beauty of the verdant hills, lush green tea gardens, magnificent wild life, rivers, dams and peaks…..to put it in one word…the scenic splendor.

WE ARE HAPPY - A Short Story By Dr Ratan Lal Basu | WBRi Online Magazine

‘Oh that’s the tree,’ gaunt Prabhu cried out in ecstasy. Fat Prabhu nodded to indicate that he too had seen it and they climbed down the slope of the embankment and made for the tree. The path was strewn with thorny thickets, titillating bushes and furthermore snakes could be lurking in the thick bushes. They battered down the bushes and thickets with the long bamboo clubs they had brought along and advanced slowly toward the tree and reaching at the bottom of the tall old sal tree they started to examine the trunk of the tree closely and were elated to find the red vermillion mark at a height of five feet. It was an asterisk drawn neatly by vermillion dissolved in oil so as to save the marking from being distorted by rain water. They removed the creepers from beneath the red marking and were reassured to find the x-markings edged out deeply in the trunk. Both of them smiled jubilantly.

This is a romantic suspense thriller involving the MITTER family household based in  Kolkata, a city in eastern India. The author, who in his role as the protagonist Mr. Drayton Corvick, a person of Indian origin and of Hungarian descent and  who after solving the Newark Bay Railway disaster in New York (as in the first book NIGHT OF TEN), visits the  MITTER household to look for a rare material that has been kept by the family. The family comprises the head Dr. Mitter, his wife and their beautiful daughter, all of whom are of very mysterious characteristics. The young couple (the protagonist and the young daughter) develop a strong attraction towards each otherbut while generating hope to get hold of the material, she betrays the protagonist in a mysterious circumstance. But the undercurrent of the novel shows that the old British-era MITTER family is still maintaining the older values and characteristics in their lifestyles while interacting with Mr. Drayton Corvick even though the city has undergone vast changes in its name as well as demographically and in lifestyles and characterisitics in this modern era.

But above all, the author has maintained the tension and thrill from beginning of the novel to the end.  And has been able to universalize the style of writing while limiting the story within a city.
