Quite elementary, my dear readers !

Today was one of those days which I fear the most. It was a day of unnecessary waiting for a 15 minute appointment with my doctor for a routine checkup. Going to the checkup driving more than an hour is something that is not strenuous, but waiting there for more than 2.5 hours is something… Continue reading Quite elementary, my dear readers !

When dogs bark

কুকুর হল মানুষের প্রিয় বন্ধু। কুকুরের মতন এত বিশ্বাসী জন্তু পৃথিবীতে হয় না - এমনকি মানুষ জন্তুটির থেকেও বিশ্বস্ত। শেষ দিন অব্দি তারা নিজের মনিবের জন্য প্রাণ দিয়ে যাবে। বহু বছর পরেও যদি তার মনিব ফিরে আসে, কুকুর কিন্ত কোনদিন তাকে ভুলবে না এবং একদম নতুনের মতনই তার মনিবের কোলে ঝাঁপিয়ে পড়বে। নতুন কিছুই আপনাদের… Continue reading When dogs bark

Kitchen

কলকাতা তে শুভ আসে চাকরির সূত্রে। তাদের আদি বাড়ি জলপাইগুড়ি - কিন্তু দুর্গাপুরে পড়াশোনা করে কলকাতায় আসে সে প্রায় ১২ বছর আগে। প্রথম প্রথম শহরের ধাক্কাটা ভালো লাগেনি - সবাই খুব ব্যস্ত - কেউ ভালোভাবে কথা বলে না, এবং তার চেয়ে বেশি ভয়ঙ্কর হলো গিয়ে যানজট। ঢাকুরিয়াতে বাড়ি ভাড়া করে থাকা - কিন্তু সেই সল্টলেকের… Continue reading Kitchen

London

London.. The headquarters of the erstwhile superpower of the world, the center of power in a small island which almost controlled the entire world by its own,  the city with rich history brimming in the foundation of power, wealth and politics, the city which has transformed itself into a living delight into the modern world… Continue reading London

Champions League 2014 Final

At the outset, I was totally pessimistic on today's final between Atletico Madrid (AM) and Real Madrid (RM) - simply because Real Madrid was a much superior team in terms of individual players, experience and style of play. This effectively meant that Atletico Madrid as the "weaker" team will play to a strategy that will… Continue reading Champions League 2014 Final

At the end of the day, when sleep beckons ….

At the end of the day, when sleep beckons The delicate silhouette takes away my senses Which emotions breaking the darkness, silences my work ? Come and take me away ….. They walk with their heads down And happiness blotted up Never turns back to imagine their return I need to go to them at… Continue reading At the end of the day, when sleep beckons ….

I, me and Sachin

Those who know me well will vouch with full conviction that I hate waking up early in the morning and I prefer to be a late-night person. So, when I had a grueling three weeks in office including some of the weekends as well, I had looked forward for a day off yesterday when at… Continue reading I, me and Sachin

One incident …..

Thirty years ago..... It was a normal school day. All the kids were playing during the lunch break. The entire place was filled up with the pleasant cacophony of the innocent. There was this 9 year old boy playing with his friends. His structure of only skin and bones with no flesh did not match… Continue reading One incident …..

The art of telling stories in 30 seconds

Is there an art of telling stories that will remain in your mind for months and years ? Of course yes.

Well, that's what advertising in television needs… Continue reading The art of telling stories in 30 seconds
