পাণ্ডা বলতেই আমাদের চোখের সামনে ভেসে ওঠে সাদা কালোর মিশেলে প্রকৃতির এক অপূর্ব সৃষ্টিকে। ভালুক গোত্রের এই নির্বিবাদী শান্তশিষ্ট প্রাণীটি কিন্তু নিজ গোত্রের অন্য প্রাণীদের মতই শক্তিধর, কিন্তু অহিংস নিরামিষাশী (বাঁশখেকো) পাণ্ডাদের শক্তির প্রকাশ দেখা যায় না বললেই চলে। এহেন এক নাদুস-নুদুস প্রাণীকে নিয়ে একটি তুমুল এ্যকশন ভিত্তিক ‘কুংফু’ চরিত্রে উপস্থাপনের আইডিয়াতে চোখ কপালে উঠেছিলো তাই অনেকের। শেষ পর্যন

The title carries the chapter’s intention. Intention to make us understand the forces or faces the dangers of being in front will hold. Most of the times when you are trying to do something good (in your own sense), the obstacle comes from some place we barely give a thought about.

I was reading a write-up by a friend on Falgun (the Bengali month that marks the beginning of spring in Bangladesh) where he compared the season and the festivity around it with Vincent van Gogh's "Wheatfield with Crows." A prolific writer, my friend's writing carried me back to the Falguni days I left behind in Dhaka.

That eighteen hour long journey chocked me like death! Billions of nightmarish thoughts have been creeping across my heart for the last eighteen hours! Pursuing higher education in an alien country where I have NOBODY was an ignorant, douche-like decision. (Didn’t listen to Mom as I was adult enough to make all the horrible decisions I want).

Fear of losing relations, money, freedom, civil rights and mostly losing stability from their life. They also could lose everything.

Theater artist and cultural organizer; Deputy Registrar, University of Rajshahi, Rajshahi

“Ask them to shoot you right in the middle of your forehead”, I looked up into the eyes of the speaker who prescribed such an advice. “That’ll be a painless death, absolutely painless”, said Dr. Syed Sajjad Hussain, my professor in the University of Dhaka. Incidentally, he was the Vice Chancellor of the University of Rajshahi at that time and I was simply a staff member there. So, he could crack a joke in front of me, even if it was about as serious a matter as life and death.
