A DIARY OF A GIPSY
This is a white board where I want to decorate some gems of words which I have received from Indian culture and from spiritual wealth of ancient sages . I have been trying here to depict the critical life journey of a village boy who in course of time and actions walks from native village to town and then one city to another in India for enjoying to have education, service and livelihood through a jig jug way .
ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE IN LIFE
I have experienced a lot , good or bad, but was enriched and try to enlightening myself . In my boyhood days I was not shy or shaky, but vibrant. Perhaps I wasn’t bold and haven’t healthy physique, but everyday I used to go high school in a remote village by walking which was 4 kilometres away from my home. There’s river Ganga ( Bhagirathi) in between our village and the village where the school is situated. After returning home in afternoon and getting some foods I regularly joined in the football or cricket team to play minimum one to one and half hours. We had to return home before dusk . From 7 to 9.30 pm was our reading time . At 9.30 it’s dinner time. Generally we have no task afterwards. Sometime we used to play indoor games Ludu with my elder brother or sister.
STUDY TIME :
But on the eve of half yearly or final exam we were to continue our studying after dinner. We had to get up at 4.30/5.00 O’clock in the morning for revision our study material for preparation. During holidays sometimes we used to sing music in our Boithakkhana along with my elder brother’s friend. Sometime we have played Ha du du , Nunthari , Badminton and also freehand exercise with Yogasana.
DURING DURGAPUJA :
We enjoyed a lot during our Durgapuja festival. Everyday I used to visit Durga Mandir to see the mud built statues of the deities. I also then used to collect Shiuli flowers
HIGHER EDUCATION :
I have been shifted to our town house for college education. There was no college near to our village home . Now there’s a college. From then I have spent almost all the time in Berhampore Murshidabad. After graduating from Krishnath College, I studied in The University of Calcutta for post graduation and Ph.D . Almost 5/6 years I had to spend in Calcutta ( now Kolkata) in West Bengal. Here I want to express some words about my health. I wasn’t sound health during this period. I was brunt severely with hot oil accidentally just before part one Honours degree exam . And was being admitted to hospital for treatment. From then I was not stable at all. However, I have got my M. A and Ph.D digress without any break.
BEGINNING OF MY SERVICE LIFE :
Just one year after I was posted in a college as a guest professor for some months. But it wasn’t permanent job. Then after some months I have been given a service as faculty member at Krishnath College in lien vacancy . But the employee didn’t return there as he was selected for Principal post somewhere in Bengal. So I was given the vacant post . There I have been teaching for 33 years .
WHEN I WAS IN KOTA :
Next I had to take a service in the department of English of Rajasthan Technical University as a guest professor and at the same time I have furnished my duty as an Associate Professor in English department at Dr. Modi Engineering College in Kota. I went there for my daughter, Sumedha’s coaching purpose and Stayed two years in Kota. This was a great experience . We joined there in Bengali Association . During Durgapuja we have been participated in music and drama . Very beautiful city . Rajasthan Technical University, where I taught is a mother University . I enjoyed immensely there.
RETURNING TO MY NEST :
Returning Bengal, I decided to stay in Durgapur City in West Bengal for my daughter’s higher education. In the meantime, I have retired from my service. After that I have taken a service in a B.Ed college as a Principal. It’s 20 km away from Durgapur City . I was there for sometime. When I have abled to manage a service near to my present resident I took resignation from the service of Principal. At present I am furnishing my small duty as a guest professor in Michael Mashusudan Memorial College in Durgapur. I want to live here with some works .
WRITING AS MY HOBBY & OTHERS THINGS :
Writing is my one of the hobbies. I authored 12 books and it has been published from Kolkata publishing company. Swami Vivekananda and Rabindranath Tagore both are my subjects of discussion. I am very fond of music. I can sing Rabindranath Sangeet and Bengali modern songs. I am also foodie. I love sweets, misti doi and Hilsa fish. Dislike meats.
