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। ......

THE HAND THAT ROCKED THE CRADLE RULED THE WORLD
by Shoumika Ganguli

Shoumika Ganguli - Poetess - Washington Bangla RadioThe poem is dedicated to all the mother's around the world. Ma is the first word spoken by a new born baby. If there is anyone in the world whom a person should go to when he or she is hurt the most it's mother. The solace and the peace which she always brings is divine and unparalleled. She knows your dilemma and your unspoken words even before you utter them. Why then at times we forget that we owe her our full life, we are indebted to her. Why then does she cry at times when she is the one who wiped out all our tears? It's hard to believe that today we have old homes where we leave our parents into the hands ofsolitude whereas its was she who befriended us when even our voices were drowned in oblivion, when our highest pitch was subdued, when our heart was torn apart and there was no one to even see the pain. Why then do we forget her unbiased and non demanding love. Is it not true that by hurting her we hurt ourselves, our moral values, our ethics ?
Through this poem Shoumika targets not just the youth but also every parent just to make every individual realizes how special this relationship is.
It's divine and is probably the most purest ever seen in the world.

BIDDING ADIEU
by Shoumika Ganguli

Shoumika Ganguli - Poetess - Washington Bangla RadioShoumika dedicates this poem to all students who are on the brink of leaving their eventful college life and now stepping onto a world of taking up not just responsibilities but challenges too. "Time and Tide waits for none” so new colleagues will replace old friends and bosses will replace hard-line and strict teachers. But amidst all these life like changes that’s every human being is destined too we all share something in common, from the worlds richest man to the poorest runs a chain i.e. the chain of emotions. Shoumika sees herself as just an apprentice so she may not very vividly and correctly justify all the emotions that run through one’s soul during farewells but she can surely feel a world loosing away from her and thus pen it down in a way that most of us would feel.
