TIme to Clean the Lens...

Roam is in the air...
Rome is in Italy....
But I can give a D and an I and a G and a H and an A and put a NEW infront of the whole Cheer Word and move ahead towards the place, South of Bengal, the coming week end...just to chillax with my friends!!! A brief and surprising get away...just going Saturday and docking back on Sunday, coz all of us will be engaged in our daily weekly routine of Work.
New Digha, a relatively quite place, placed on the coastline of Bay of Bengal, is serene with the lining of casuarina trees along the sandy banks... Relatively less crowded, this place is apt for its warmth and beauty...
So, I cleaned my lens, making it ready for the tough salty air ahead...long time (since Jan 2010), did I have a good photo session with my camera...so it awaits the fun!!!
New Digha, here we come!!!

“আমাকে আমার মত থাকতে দাও।”
জীবনে এটাই খুব দরকার, কিন্তু লোকেদের ন্যাকামি দেখলে সারা শরীর জ্বলে ওঠে! কেন ভাই, কাজ় নেই? যেখানে যাও, এই হারজ্বালানী, ন্যাকামির ডীপোগুলি এসে ঠিক জুটে যায়! নিজের terms and condition গুলো কেম্ন যেন হারিয়ে যায়। মন খুযে বেরায় সেই সং সাজবার নাট্যমঞ্চ, যার নাম সংসার! তাই যতই গান লেখ র গাও, জীবনের আসল উতস্য হল, জীবন  দেওয়া মন্ত্রঃ কাউকে তয়াক্কা না করে এগিয়ে চলো! আসল উতস্য প্রবাসি... সনগ্রাম কে মনের ভীতরে স্থান দিও না, তার জন্যে তাহা প্রবাসের সমতুল্য, অন্য দিক থেকেও তাই... দেখা হবে!!!

Independence to Childhood: Soccer with School-mates, 2010.

.... and the tradition continues. An annual saga since 1998, this soccer match has had its own course of atrophy, moving through the serpentine lanes of childhood into the open canyon of youth and now dropping into its middle ages.
The "Schoolies" of mid twenties, accumulated yet again, under the arches of the 132years old institution, Calcutta Boys' School, to celebrate the spirit of ReUnion, with the most enjoyable activity of school days (be it bunking classes, to reaching late at tuition); Soccer has always been an integral part of a CBSeans' life. We behold the tradition laid down for so many years- the numbers might have less, but the spirit was un-putdownable. The veterans that reached the field were: Suvadip (Shyamla), Aniruddha (Ani), Arnab (Mukherjee), Arnab (Chow Chow), Debashis, Aritra (Bhowmick), Avirup (Sarkar/Robin), Sourajit (Mama), Satadru (Hata), Premjit and three more of Shyamla's pal...and me as well.

Independent Views...

I accumulate certain viewpoints of people I know, expressed either through sms or through the social networking sites regarding the phenomenon we enjoy every year since 1947A.D, but every year, certain notes always get shared and certain interesting notes develops (some say as conspiracy).
Its not always that the inspection regarding Netaji's death and dis-appearance along with the aversion that the Union government shows towards the proceeding of the findings remains as a disgust in our mouth. Atleast I expected some justice from the chairs at Delhi, this time; as the Dr. Manmohan Singh's cabinet has some well educated ministers heading and more so, a Bengal Party is second best in the coalition. But, scenarios seems not to change! Let it be, coz its better not insult that great man who played an immense role in making the nation free. The principles of Mahatma Gandhi wouldn't have counted at all, hadn't it been for the aggressive revolutionaries like Netaji Subhash Ch…

Where are my Friends?!!!

Friends...! Where are you all??
Suddenly, I realized this insecurity while browsing Facebook and less frequently Orkut. All my friends have started vanishing from their frendsible nature!!! It seems that all their mind have undergone a nuclear meltdown and being a biologist, would term it as an atropy, all speaking in the same tone.
Facebook and Orkut and also Tweeter are made to express the nicks and bits and be in touch. But when ever I find time to browse through the pages, I find people busy writing some Gyaan or Intellectual Cheesy Quotes or making some quotes of their own. Even if I support the latter part, being part of creativity, the former to me seems too boring... Friends, the sole reason I joined orkut (first) and then Facebook was to be in touch with my childhood and adulteration years (college/university). I am not here to meet Alfred A. Montapert (as quoted by Arpan;CBS -Do not confuse motion and progress. A rocking horse keeps moving but does not make any progress)... I …

The Cage Called...

Marriage....
Ya, its a cage that comes in all flowers, and for many it becomes a space (dedicated to limited access). The Best example these days: Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who after marriage with Mrs. Shakshi M.S. Dhoni have turned numb in his batting powerfulness and his "blasting form" seems to continue everywhere, except the turf!!!
Then we have another cage called Maze.
Its confusing and makes people more confused when others seem to play act of being within one. Maze, the place where the organizing committee of the Common Wealth Games, 2010 are in at New Delhi. They bid to showcase national pride in front of an international arena. Now they play with leaky roofs and patchy fields, that led two sportman great speculate. One bashes, the Indian Soccer captain, Mr. Bhaichung Bhutia commenting the CWG shouldn't have been bid for and then we have the Former Indian Cricket captain, Mr. Sourav Ganguly hoped that the CWG would be pulled off properly. We also HOPE!
And the last cag…
