Remembering Steve Jobs

Today is Bijoya Doshomi, the day Ma Durga goes away from her children for a year - a pang every Hindu/Bengali feels... But I can't fathom more a loss than losing Steve. My humble way of saluting my Guru!

Mind races back to the day I got to shake your hand at the Cupertino meeting, that was a blessed day. Rest in peace, my Hero.

রবিতরু (RobiToru)

Mixed Media - This is a homage to the eternal Bengali Poet, Kobiguru Rabindranath Tagore (Bengali: রবীন্দ্রনাথ ঠাকুর, Robindronath Ţhakur) [7 May 1861 – 7 August 1941].

My personal belief is no-one can truly realize "Bengalis" without reading Tagore, please encourage youngsters to read the poets works.

বিগত ২৫শে বৈশাখ

সকালে উঠে থেকে শুনতাম দাদুর রেডিওতে,
স্কুলের দুপুরে ঘুমের ভান করে মার ক্যাসেটে|
লোঢসেডিং এর আঁধারে  ঠাম্মুর গুনগুনানিতে,
চোখ বুজে আসার আগে ছাতে কাকুর সেতারে!

শুধূ তোমাকেই শুনেছিলাম,
তখন বুঝিনী হয়তো!
আজ তোমাকে লেখা পাতায় খুঁজি,
পেলেও বা, সেই সময়ের তোমায় নারি!

তোমায় যারা পুজো করতো
আজ তারা নেই,
যারা আছে, ছায়া মাত্র;
কায়ায় কথা আছে, সুর নেই !
