As I mentioned Bumba liked playing with me more than with other boys. May be because we did not mix much with the neighboring children.  Park circus, where we used to stay was a predominantly Muslim area and there were more Muslims and white people living than ordinary and middleclass Bengali Hindus Those days there was a sharp division between the Hindus and the Muslims because of the partition of India by the British and the riot following that.

CHAPTER TWO


Daima

Daima was not exactly a maid nor was she a relative but father found her on the pavement of the street of Calcutta begging for alms. Father used to take the bus from his office at Dalhousie  Square ,now known as B.B.D Bag and  got down at Gariahat crossing and took another bus to take him to our place at Park Circus. One day father noticed an elderly woman clad in torn and dirty clothes sitting on the pavement with her hand outstretched and head bent down. She seemed to be a woman from a respectable family and not a typical beggar woman. Father dropped a coin on her outstretched palm and was involuntarily taken aback when the woman looked up at him with tears of humiliation and a hint of smile of gratefulness.  He had a feeling as if she was his own dead mother. That day father came back home brooding and discussed the incident with ma.

মহম্মদগঞ্জ

শুকদেব চট্টোপাধ্যায়, রহড়া


স্টেশনের  নাম মহম্মদগঞ্জ। প্রথম যেদিন ট্রেন থেকে নেমে ঐ স্টেশনে  পা রাখি, ভোরের আলো তখনও ফোটেনি। আলো আঁধারে আকাশের গায়ে কিছু আঁকা বাঁকা রেখা চোখে পড়েছিল। আলো ফোটার সাথে সাথে সেগুলো এক একটা ছোট, বড়, মাঝারি পাহাড়ের রূপ নিল। এর আগে পাহাড় দেখা দূরে থাক কোনদিন সামনে থেকে টিলাও দেখিনি। অবাক বিস্ময়ে ঘন জঙ্গলে ঘেরা পাহাড়ের সারির দিকে অনেকক্ষণ চেয়েছিলাম। আমি ঘুরতে ভালবাসি। জীবনে অনেক পাহাড়ে, জঙ্গলে ঘুরেছি। সেইসব জায়গার অপরূপ প্রাকৃতিক শোভা দু চোখ ভরে উপভোগ করেছি। কিন্তু শিশুকালের সেই প্রথম পাহাড় দেখার অনুভূতি কোন কিছুর সাথেই তুলনীয় নয়।
