As the time sails down the levee of the river ganges,
I see the citylights grew a little older, while those passionate smiles a bit younger.
You will hear this maajhi singing his life tales, narrating his way of living, and reciting heartfull of pure flavours of history.
Those typical colonial words, that traverse down the nerves to soothe one's heart.
"oh! Kaka, kemon accho go?", and that grin in a wrinkled face, the satisfaction of his daily struggle, to cross shores and take people back to their homes.
From a toddler, to a teenager i grew up seeing him work hard across the ghats.
And, Now its the time of the autumn falls, those bright eyes, with a peppy heart eagerly wait for him to bring Ma durga to our homes sailing all the way from the himalayas to my city.
Kolkata is beautifully dressed in bright red colours as the dawn sets perfectly along the howrah bridge lines.
And as i take a walk along the tramlines, the funicular pathways, the long empty roads, there was a sense of pride, in the people who crossed my way.
A sense of pride for the woman, we all have been talking about. A woman that knows no bounds, A woman who fights with an art of tolerance, patience, love yet a sense of struggle for her rights. A woman, who celebrates literature not just as an artist, but also by being sculpted by a sculpture. A woman who has no limits, no hesitations, a women who is worshipped as a power, a woman as a goddess, a woman as a mother, as a daughter, and as a child. A woman who is an enrichment to this culture, perfectly binds elegance with those detailings of the red and white saree.
And as the majhi, overcomes the hurdles of the chaotic waves, he narrates how Ma durga saved our earth..
While all i felt were the sounds of dhunuchi, and the air filled with the lavender essence.
