বাংলার ভবিষ্যৎ

  • রাজীব চক্রবর্তী

 

সময় লাগবে শুষে নিতে নতুন পরিবেশ

সময় লাগবে কথা ফুটতে ।

যে ছেলেটা ক্যাসেটের স্টলে  হতাশ সুরে

বলেছিল , “সব বাংলা !”

সেও প্রিয়তর ভাষায় পদে পদে হোঁচট খাবে

যতই গান শুনুক সিনেমা দেখুক

বোকা বাক্সে ডুবে থাকুক ।

যিনি বলেছিলেন , “ বাংলা না শিখলেও চলে ”

আর যে বলেছিল , “ বাংলা শিখে কোনো লাভ নেই ”

তাদের দশাও তথৈবচ

যদিও তারা উল্টোটাই  জানে ।

হৃতবৈচিত্র্য  দেশে ষাট শতাংশ  মানুষ

শতক দুয়েক বোবা হয়ে থাকবে

সময় লাগবে  অন্য ভাষায় কথা ফুটতে ।

The WordPress.com Blog

In some parts around the world, this Sunday is dedicated to the mothers out there. For Mother’s Day, we’ve rounded up sites on motherhood, parenting, and family. On WordPress.com, you’ll discover mothers on all paths: new moms, stay-at-home-moms, single moms, mothers who are full-time writers, and more. (Even mommy men, as you’ll see below.)

We especially want to highlight bloggers with unique perspectives and thoughtful commentary, as well as collaborative blogs with multiple contributors. So, we hope you enjoy this sampling of sites in honor of this special day.

Butterfly Mind

Creative nonfiction writer Andrea Badgley lives with her husband and two children in the Appalachian mountains of Virginia. In the past, she’s caught our eye with thoughtful posts on both family and the writing life: a piece on putting food on the table, and a post on revisiting her childhood diaries.

Every few weeks, we’re sitting down with an Automattician to help you get to know the people who work behind the scenes to build new features, keep Automattic running, and make WordPress.com the best it can be. This week, we’re very pleased to introduce you to Mr. Philip Arthur Moore: Theme Broker, global nomad, and emoticon expert.

What kinds of awesome things do you do at Automattic?

I’m currently the Premium Theme Team lead at WordPress.com. The majority of my waking hours are spent feverishly obsessing over making premium themes a world-class experience for all WordPress users.

An ode to a father, a story of growing up with two mothers, a request for a cloak of visibility, and a reflection on goodbyes. Here are four Freshly Pressed standouts from this week — all quite personal pieces that have resonated with many readers. Go ahead and dive in:

Why I Don’t Diet — An Ode to My Father

My father spent his years fighting his size, wishing he was smaller, weaker, less of a giant. He was taught to hate his body, and he was ashamed of the amount of space he took up. But he passed his strength to me, and I won’t squander my inheritance. I will not let myself be diminished.

Tiffany Kell, a contributor and dancer at More Cabaretreflects on her father’s recent passing, and his long struggle with his weight and health. She describes him vividly — “born larger than life”…

আগেরগুলো কিভাবে কখন মুছল টের পাই নি ।

Why are Bengali ladies portrayed as vamps in Hindi TV serials ? See Anushka Sarkar in Kya Huya Tera Wada on Sony Entertainment. Remember Svetlana Banerjee in Swabhiman, the popular serial on DD about a decade and a half earlier ?
