A Conversation.

“Hey there” “Hello?” “How are you” “Well I’m okay, but why are you laughing?” “I always laugh” “Laugh at what?” “At everything going on around” “What’s special is going on around? To laugh at?” “Everything is to laugh at, don’t you see?” “No, that’s ridiculous, I can’t fathom everything around is to laugh at” “Then…

Joychandi Pahar – a Recollection

Amongst many other things, those days we were just vagabonds, and haphazardly wayfairing. This memoir is one of those many occasions…. It was a stormy late summer afternoon. We two got into the Howrah station (our most bourgeois starting post), already mostly wet by then. Wontedly, we commenced our contemplation about our destination then. There…

Still standing there

He was standing there. Quiet, motionless, still. He didn’t know why he was standing there. Didn’t know what he wanted, didn’t know what he was looking for. Didn’t know what he was waiting for. He was just standing there. His eyes were wordless. His lips were mum. His face pale. His body, crumbling. He was…


A hanging needle. Still. Stagnant. Meaningless. Valueless. But the same needle, when vibrates, leaves its stationary state, may signal an earthquake. May signal an apocalypse.

পূজো এসে গেলো । এসে গেলো বষরের সেই দিনগুলি । পূজোর সেই দিনগুলি ।   শিশির ভেজা ঘাসের দিনগুলি । ঘন নীল আকাশে সাদা সাদা পেঁজা তুলোর মত মেঘের দিনগুলি । সবুজ ঘাসের চাদরে সাদা কাশফুলের দিনগুলি । সকাল সন্ধে মিষ্টি ঠাণ্ডা হাওয়ার দিনগুলি । প্রখর দাবদাহের পর শীতল পরশের দিনগুলি । শিউলী ফুলগুলোর মাদক গন্ধের…
