Rabindranath

Standard

The impact of Rabindranath Tagore is stupendous. I must admit, I got my strength to fight loneliness, restlessness, every “ness” that brings mess :), from his songs, lyrics, poems even sometimes proses.
My wife Mithu syas “amader ektai thakur, Rabindranath Thakur”(we have one God : Rabindranath). Actually in Bengali, thakur means God.
I know, everyone has their own support to burtress on at the time of distress. Sometimes it may be Shakespeare, sometimes it could be some one else. I’m trmendous admirer of Ernest Hemingway also, there are so many other Literary Icons, Film makers, artists, but my outlook towards Life is so close to his….

From Human to Machine Language

Standard

I am really happy that at this age(nearing 45), at last I find some reasons to keep living on.
Some people adored my style of writing and I feel fortunate and grateful to my Life(I like the word Rabindranath used=Jiban Devata). But there is a limitation. In Bengali language the scopes of writing are getting reduced. It’s unfortunate but true that, literary world shrinks here. You can keep on writing as long as you wish but you won’t get the same pleasure that writers would get 20 or 25 years back.

Any way, still Literature is my first Love.
But I felt that I can’t live only around that. Literature can fill some gap but probably not all.
In this situation, I suddenly discovered there is something called Internet which is Live and Kicking. It gets you connected to the whole world.
My world of Imagination suddenly got a jolt. I found, in this world, there are so many interesting things under the Sun!
One of them is Web Langauage.
So an amazing journey began, from Human to Machine Langauge.
The most attractive thing of technology/science is that, it never lets you sleep. Something is happening. Always. You don’t find time to get depressed!
Technology is the best anti-depressant I found!
It keeps me going. I love it. I live on it now. And hopefully I can do something useful for the children, for the old, for the mentally challenged.
One day, I hope to use technology and the power of word together to find a solution to the faults in the programming of Nature and Life(again joking :)).
