The Friend

You know, when you travel the path of your life you meet some people you would like to be like. For me there were very few such people. I am not a sort of person who bestows her heart easily. So I have loved very few people in my life, I have respected even fewer and even fewer have I wanted to be like someone. But I have a friend of a character quite opposite to mine. She is not an indulgent person , a character like mine. But in all other traits she is different. She wakes up at 4:45 in the morning, takes her morning walks, exercises, eats a balanced diet, avoid junk food but yet her body has yielded no result. No trace of weight loss after so much hard work. But she goes on in this routine never losing hope on her beliefs. Unbelievable grit and determination!

She yields up designs that could glorify mansions. Her work to the last is neat, beautiful and perfect. She is never too much of angry or too much of happy to make her a serious problem. I love her neutrality, her patience, her understanding. She has every quality that I lack. She has every quality I will want to have. It saddens me to say that her nerves are not as stable and all her problems are the problems created by nervousness. But we all know that some day this nervousness that acts as a barrier in her path shall yield and that day her determination will be awarded. She will reach the goal that she works for so determinedly, a goal that is of a greater dimension then a small problem with the belly.

25th of Baishak

Kabi Guru Rabindranath Thakur

Hello guys! Today we celebrate ‘Pachise Boishak’. This really is a very important day as is it the birth day of a most unique man- a poet, a lyricist, a writer, one of the most brilliant men who set foot on the Earth- the bday of Rabindranath Tagore. Today even the hot Sun, raising temperature in Kolkata to 40 degree Celsius, can not lower the spirit of men and women. From dawn till dusk I can only hear the Nightingale like voices sing Rabindranath’s songs, recite his poems, love, respect and adore him. Tagore did not only start a new school, wrote brilliant poems and songs, won the Nobel Prize but also started a new culture- a culture of love, brotherhood, freedom and equality. Today I pay my respects to this Bengali legacy by only saying that we are trying to build, we will build the country where-

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by Thee to ever-widening thought and action.
