কবি ও লেখিকা

কবি, ছন্দে, গানে, আর শব্দ ফাঁদে লুকিয়ে তোমার রহস্য- আর তোমার লেখায়, তোমার কথায় আমার রইল সর্বস্ব । উঠবে জেগে ভাঙলে ঝড়ে? বাঁচব আবার বসন্ত পরে? তুমি নয়, তোমার-আমার গল্পগাথার আমি লিখব পুনশ্চ ।। N.B. Not perfect, but still my … Continue reading

Catharsis XIX: I am NOT a klutz!

People are unkind. All of them. The best of them, the worst of them- every last one of them, given the slightest provocation, the merest leeway always end up being merciless and brutal. It’s that dratted, messed up, so-called human … Continue reading

অন্য ছেলেমেয়েদের মতন করলি আমায়, নতুন নতুন নখরা সবার মতন আমিও শেষে, হলাম সোশ্যাল-মিডিয়া বকরা। ফোনটা খুলে check করি আমি status বারংবার- নতুন কোনো ‘like’ বা ‘comment’ পেলাম কি আবার? ‘Groupfie’ তুলি, ‘Selfie’ তুলি, প্রচুর ছবির ভান্ডার- Online প্রমাণ থাকলে পরেই … Continue reading

দাঁড়িপাল্লায় ওজন করেও, পায়না খুঁজে কূল যেই নম্বর বলি না কেন, সবই বলে ভুল | বলছে ব্যাটা, হচ্ছি মোটা, দৌড়ে আয় বাইরে- আমিও জেদী, বলছি মেকি, তোর বাজে কথায় কাজ নাইরে! আমি রোগা, এক্কেবারে প্রায় শুঁয়াপোকা, দিবিনা নজর, খাওয়ার-পাতে; একটাই … Continue reading

I have dreamed of you every night that we have been apart… Tossing and turning in a fitful, restless sleep, jolting into tired wakefulness only to relive those unfathomable, treasured eyes looking at me, and beyond me, unsmiling and saying, “It … Continue reading
