A Fleeting Memory

Posted in

When I was a little girl, living in the same house with aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents, life followed a different rhythm. During the hot summer nights we used to lay down beside Thakuma, and listen to her singsong voice telling us a story of some Raja and Rani. Often there was no power, and Thakuma used to fan us with her hand-fan made of palm tree leaf.

A Visit to a Danseuse

Posted in

 The Ohio State University (OSU) is the melting pot of cultural activity in Columbus, Ohio. Students across the globe come here to fulfill their dreams. A Kolkata-based danseuse is presently at Columbia University. She is perusing her PhD here on the art of dancing while being an Odissi dancer herself. A drive down to OSU campus was all it took for me, to talk to her about her life as well as her dreams and aspirations. Dance for her is a very important part of her life and she would like to grow in that art.She narrated to me glimpses of her childhood and all the memories which lead to her passion for dancing.

Durga Puja on Foreign Soil

Posted in

Duga Puja and Bengali are almost synonymous. The festive celebration of Durga Ma’s decent from Kailash to visit her mother’s home usually comes during the fall season, with nature changing colors and the wind picking up a cooler tone. For the thousands of Bengali folks now living across the border of their mother-land, this celebration is also well awaited.

Vanishing Childhood

Posted in

My best friend called me, when I was grilling my younger son on his Geometry test for the next day. I told her that I will call her later, as I was in the parking lot of the music school. My older child was in his music class and the younger one finishing his home-work in the car with me.

Today ladies, I am harping on an ever persisting issue of moms working form and out of home. This post is not about what is good and what is not. It is about the different viewpoints and the choices we moms make to adjust our roles. There are many fathers involved in this process of adjustment, as I have seen among many of my friends who have full time working job.

Been married for some time now, I wanted to know the different views all hold about this institution. In today’s supersonic world the system of marriage and its value has taken a new meaning. For the good or bad, I really cannot say, as one who lives it knows it the best. During my visit to India, I asked few ladies their views about marriage.

The Changing Face of Education

Change is the only constant factor in life. The education system of India is also following that trend. Since I went to school, times have changed and so has the way of imparting knowledge. Now days the primary schools of India follow the system of ‘no child left behind’, in which children get promoted to the next level without any half term or annual exams.

The Home Coming

Posted in

The sky was still dark, as the Lord of the day had not made his grand entrance. I peered from the oval window of the plane, tiny yellow and white lights winked at me in a hap-hazardous fashion from the ground below. Had seen it so many times before, and had gone through this scenario several times, but it never fails to take my breath away.
