Gora- Gem in Bengali Literature (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: Strong message –‘Humanity’- above all religion is the core of the classic novel. This is citied with references of a poor Muslim’s wife mothering a Hindu child, Anandamoyi a Hindu bringing up orphan Gora irrespective his Irish ethnicity and Paresh Babu believer of Brahmo(Christian) fathered a Hindu girl along with her brother, reflected the very basics of humanity, love for each other irrespective of religion they were born in. The Indian society which seems to be rigidly and orthodoxy divided into different religious beliefs of Hindus, Muslims and Christians when analysed minutely reflected, they actually bind together in a common thread of humanity, which is Above All Religion. And Gora learns this with his experiences and a hidden truth. Go and Get your copy to read, if you still have not read the masterpiece.

Description: No one needs Newton’s intelligence to guess the hidden agenda of Friday evening’s emergency meeting. As usual, the discussion will eventually lead to count on mules interested to work on weekends. Between the devil and the deep blue sea (spoil appraisal or get axed), it’s always wiser to agree to work, with your conditions applied. Unlike everyone, my condition was the approval of a long vacation, once I’m through with post live project test report. Every such passing weekend reinforced my entitlement for a long vacation.

Description: The human spirit, Deemed frail, Often proves, As tough as nails. And given such, incredible knack It fights, resists, And bounces back. Come tough times, And tough blows, The adrenalin, That somehow flows... Signals to, The human will—When all is done, Keep fighting still. -Walterrean Salley
