মহারাণীর মহা-কাব্য শুনবেন নাকি ভাই ?
শুনতে যদি চান তাহলে শুনুন বলে যাই ।।
এক দেশে এক রাজা ছিল সঙ্গী ছিলেন রাণী,
এক যুগ কেটে গেল বলতে-শুনতে বাণী ।
রাজা-রাণীর তখনও কিন্তু হয়নি সংসার মিল,
সোসাইল সংসারে তাদের ছিল বড়ই মিল ।
হঠাৎ রাণীর সংসার নিয়ে ঠানা-হেছড়া শুরু,
নতুন রাজা ঠিক করেন ভাই বেরাদর গুরু ।
রাজা শুনে অবাক কান্ড পালঙ্কেতে ফিঠ,
অপর দিকে রাণীর বাড়ী বাজছে সানাই-গীত ।
সংসারের চাপে পড়ে হল রাণীর বিয়ে,
হতভাগা রাজা মশাই বাচঁবেন কি নিয়ে ???
ভাসছে রাজা মহা-সমুদ্রে পায়না তীরের দেখা,

They Gave A Lifetime

Here is another pair of combined UVF memorial stones – from both WWI and the modern conflict. Above, the fallen comrades of 2nd battalion South Belfast are remembered by their fellow officers and volunteers in the Village’s B Company; below, the garden is dedicated to the “glory of God” in memory of the “sons of Ulster” by “all of their comrades in arms who, by divine grace, were spared to testify to their glorious deeds.” 53 more words


In loving memory of Koka (B. N. Gogoi)

A framed black and white photograph of Koka, my maternal grandfather, rests on a circular table in my grandmother, Ahalya Gogoi’s drawing room overlooking the Brahmaputra. 553 more words
