One man who’ll dependably be associated with making Mahalaya huge to every last one is Birendra Krishna Bhadra, the mysterious voice behind the “Mahisasura Mardini.” The unbelievable storyteller recounts the sacred verses and recounts the plummet’s account of Durga to earth, in his matchless style. Bhadra has since quite a while ago passed away, however his recorded voice still structures the center of the Mahalaya program. In a resonating, resounding voice Birendra Bhadra renders the
As we are about to celebrate 71th years of our Independence, I pay my tributes to all those people, who had laid down their lives during partition of India in 1947. The Partition of India has been one of the most tragic of all political events to affect India. The British left, dividing India into two. The nation was divided along religious lines, Pakistan as an Islamic state and India a secular one. [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2j2pSBHAOU&w=560&h=315]

The common mistake that bullies make is assuming that because someone is nice that he or she is weak. Those traits have nothing to do with each other. In fact, it takes considerable strength and character to be a good person. -Mary Elizabeth Williams
We cultivate love when we allow our most vulnerable and powerful selves to be deeply seen and known, and when we honor the spiritual connection that grows from that offering with trust, respect, kindness and affection. Love is not something we give or get; it is something that we nurture and grow a connection that can only be cultivated between two people when it exists within each one of them – we can only love
In your search for love, be cautious. The miserable truth is that predators can be extraordinary fakers, and they are out there searching for their next victim. Look inside than the words they say to you. Try not to overlook warnings or any inclination you have that something is not exactly right.
Be kind for as much as you can, but when you feel your limits are being pushed, and the thing inside you begin to stir. Warn them once about it and if they still do not listen. Then, unleash the dragon they pinched. -GK Dutta
You are wonderful like annihilation. Simply the possibility of you draws my knuckles white. I needn’t bother with a divine being. I have you and your excellent mouth, your hands clutching me, the nails leaving unfelt wounds, your hot breath on my neck. The essence of your salivation. The obscurity is our own. The evenings have a place with us. All that we do is mystery. Nothing we do will ever be comprehended; we will
When you drop a glass or a plate to the ground it makes a loud crashing sound. When a window shatters a table leg breaks or when a picture falls off the wall it makes a noise.

এক-একজন মানুষ আছে যারা কোন কিছু না করেই অনেক কিছু করে যায়। “তুমি” সেই দলেরই লোক। তুমি যে আমাকে খুব বেশি ভালোবাসবে, সারাটা সময় আমার সাথে কথা বলবে বা আমাকে বিয়ে করে সারাটা জীবন আমার সাথে কাটাবে- তা যেন আবশ্যক বলে মনেই হয় না- মনে হয় কোন কিছু না করেও তুমার মধ্যে একটা চরিতার্থতা আছে। এক তরফা ভালোবাসাটা যদিও প্রকৃত ভালোবাসায় শুভা পায়না। তাঁতে এক পষ্কের অপদার্থতা পরিস্ফুট হয়ে ওটে। কিন্তু তুমার মতো কিছু লোক

“মানুষ” কি লোহার কল যে ঠিক নিয়ম অনুসারে চলবে? মানুষের মনের এত বিচিত্র এবং বিস্তৃত কান্ড-কারখানা, তার এতদিকে গতি এবং এত রকমের অধিকার যে, তাকে এদিকে-ওদিকে হেলতেই হবে। সেই তার জীবনের লক্ষন, তার মনুষত্বের চিহ্ন, তার জড়ত্বের প্রতিবাদ। এই দ্বিধা, এই দুর্বলতা যার নেই তার মন নিত্যান্ত সংকীর্ন, কঠিন এবং জীবন বিহীন। যাকে আমরা প্রবৃত্তি বলি এবং যার প্রতি আমরা সর্বদাই কঠু ভাষা প্রয়োগ করি, সেইতো আমাদের জীবনের গতিশক্তি। সেই আমাদের নানা সুখ-দুঃখ, পাপ-পুন্যের মধ্য
India gained her independence in 1947 but do the women in India feel free? Women have been subordinated across the globe throughout history. It’s paradoxical that on one hand, the world was experiencing enlightenment but on the other hand, women were still subordinated. The Encyclopaedia, a collection of articles produced during the Enlightenment Period by scholars like Voltaire, Denis Diderot etc., was originally written under the shelter of salons run by educated women in 1780s
Politics is perhaps the most commonly used word in every sphere of life these days. Now, when independent India has reached the age of 60, why not have a look at the youth and their perception of politics? Independent India has completed a journey of over 60 successful years. During this period, we have witnessed the worst and the best. The changes our country went through have helped it to evolve as a stronger and
“You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind” – Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi Independence is the freedom of the soul, a perception of the mind and a feeling understood by the heart. This freedom, perception and more importantly, this feeling is that of liberation, patriotism, self-dependence and other such things. When all such terms are put together and imposed upon the majority, it
Essentially, “young people” fall into the period of life from the beginning of puberty to the attainment of adulthood. This period is usually concomitant with problems as they “struggle” to fit themselves into society. The word “problem” doesn’t necessarily imply that youth is assumed to be a period in which storm and stress predominate; it can be a period marked by good health and high achievement. Nevertheless difficult decisions and adjustments face young people in
Approximately 36 million (35% of the total population of 1025 million) in the country, consists of youth (between 15-24 years as per WHO definition). In 1981, the youth population was approximately 125 million and 171 million at the beginning of 1991. It was over 230 million at the beginning of 2001. Keeping in view the important role which the youth can play towards national development as well as the emerging health problems of the youth,
Have you ever considered what life would be like if you could overcome your limitations? Essentially, there are three things that truly inhibit man’s potential to succeed and grow beyond himself… 1. DEATH: Obviously, death would be the first problem in humanity. Statistics show that approximately 150,000 people die everyday. The annual death rate is 56 million. Logically, that is an economic waste. Bostrom explains that, if one person equaled one book, we would lose
Imagine that on an icy moon of Jupiter – say Ganymede – the space station of an alien civilization is concealed. For millions of years its scientists have closely watched the earth. Because their law prevents settlement on a living planet, they have tracked the surface by means of satellites equipped with sophisticated sensors, mapping the spread of large assemblages of organisms, from forests, grasslands and tundras to coral reefs and the vast planktonic meadows
What does it mean to state that humanity is expanding beyond comprehension? How does that affect your day-to-day life while you participate in creating the reality you call your world? Since every aspect of your conscious existence is experienced through your perception (all of your senses) and it is that comprehension creating your next experience, it follows that what you will encounter in the next moment is based upon your perception in this moment. What
A lot of thought, advice and guidance must have gone into your choice of a carrier-be it, Medicine, Engineering, Computers, or any other related discipline. That was just the first step in concertizing your life time, ambition, what remains to be done is detailed planning, hard work, disciplined and above all, perseverance in achieving your target. And it is no easy task,-believe me. Having chosen your goal, you must take one step at a time.
Force, energy, strength, might, influence. The many faces of power. The English dictionary has several meaning for power. Like:- a) The state or property of being strong. b) The ability to resist attack. c) The resilience to stress. d) The ability to do something. e) The capacity to influence people. And so on… However, the most telling interpretation of power is: a position of control, which explains to some extent, why power remains one of
Become God to each other. Do not look for God somewhere, in the sky, but see God in every pair of eyes, in the mountain, waters, trees, and animals, HOW? Only when you see God in your self. Only Gods can worship Gods. To recognize divinity, there are three dimensions:- “TIME”, ‘SPACE”, and “MIND”. For a seeker, it is necessary to honor time and space. So, he or she can experience sacredness in his or
Your success and happiness, no doubt, depend a great deal on your thought and actions. At the same time we must also remember the fact that others especially good-friends can significantly contribute to our success and happiness. In others words, our success and happiness are closely linked to the attitudes and action of others towards us. Basically such attitudes and actions turn out to be a reflection of our own attitudes and actions towards them.
