Charaibeti (Bengali)

 “Om …..”The deep resonant sound seemed emanating from deep inside his guts … ascending along his spine … gradually reaching the base of his skull … entering his brain….
It seemed to him that Time had become stationary … it had lost the meaning of direction, the past … the present … the future …. It’s a totally eerie feeling. Was it the Alpha point? Or, the Omega? 
Suddenly he felt a peculiar tremor in his lower belly. It seemed to take its origin at the end of his spine. Then it entered his pelvis. It ran along his Auerbach’s plexus, then along the Pelvic splanchnic nerve … to the Nervii Erigentis … & touched the base of his organ. At that moment his whole body shivered by an unknown sensation as if he had touched a live-wire. His flaccid organ, which hitherto never knew the meaning of the word erection, now leaped into a fully aroused state. The sensation, the discovery was so sudden, so unexpected, so novel, that he just could not fathom his feelings. The long standing helplessness, the inferiority complex, the deep sorrow inside him just opened like a lock gate, & his gratefulness to the Almighty ran down as a flood of tears …. 

This is a story of an impotent man.
Soumya is impotent. But he is a man. Like every other man he has his likings, his love. But the cruel society has failed to accept him as a man. He has become a fugitive, always on the run from the society, carrying his impotency with him. But he loves the life, & he lacks the mental strength to deny it. His love of life is expressed through his poems, through his camera. This love has lead to him into an improbable marriage knowing fully well his physical incapability. But hard life with its iron hand has stricken him with vengeance, injuring his body, his mind, his soul. Shattered as he is, Soumya runs away from his home, his poems, his love. He runs from place to place, from temples to temples, from sacred places to sacred places. He never wanted to be a pilgrim, but fate makes him one- a pilgrim to the monasteries of virtues, & of sins. 
This is the story of the journey of Soumya, a journey inwards. “Charaibeti” - the eternal teaching of the Upanishads – to march forward to the ultimate goal of life – has become a reality in his own life. Walking along the road of life, unlike most of us, he has reached the gate of the Truth. But can he enter through it?

কোনদিন ভাবিনি ছড়া লিখবো। ছড়া যে নিতান্তই ছেলেমানুষী ছন্দ মিলানো নয়, সে কথাটাও কখনো সিরিয়াসলি ভাবিনি। এই অজানা রাজ্যে অ্যাডভেঞ্চার শুরু করার মূলে রয়েছে একটি ছোট্ট মেয়ে বৃষ্টি রায়, যার আবদার মেটাতে গিয়ে অনভ্যস্ত হাতে ছড়া লিখতে শুরু করি। সে প্রায় দেড় বছর আগের কথা। প্রথম প্রথম ছন্দ মেলানোতেই বেশী নজর দিতাম, কিন্তু ক্রমশঃ ছড়ার অন্তর্নিহিত শক্তির আভাষ পেতে শুরু করি। একসময় বুঝতে পারলাম ছড়ার সহজ ছন্দের আড়ালে লুকিয়ে রয়েছে একটা প্রচণ্ড ক্ষমতা। কখনো তা তীক্ষ্ণ স্যাটায়ারের, কখনো তা চোখে আঙুল দিয়ে সত্যকে দেখানো প্রচারকের, কখনো বা বাচ্চাদের সরল প্রশ্নের আকারে আমাদের অন্ধবিশ্বাসের বিরুদ্ধে ছুঁড়ে দেওয়া উদ্যত চ্যালেঞ্জের। এটা বোঝার পরই ছড়া লেখার মজাটা পেতে শুরু করি। বিগত দেড় বছর ধরে বিভিন্ন ধরণের ছড়া লিখে গেছি, যার অনেকগুলোই ফেসবুকে প্রকাশিত হয়েছে। সেই ছড়াগুলির সঙ্গে আরো কয়েকটি নিয়ে বন্ধুবর স্বনামধন্য প্লাস্টিক সার্জন ও ঔপন্যাসিক অনিরুদ্ধ বসুর আগ্রহে এবং স্মৃতি পাবলিশার্স-এর কর্ণধার শ্রীমতি স্মৃতি বসুর ঐকান্তিক সহায়তায় একশোটির বেশী ছড়ার একটি সংগ্রহ এই বইটির আকারে প্রকাশিত হতে চলেছে ।
