Morning Candy

Morning Candy

One of the fondest memories of my childhood was stretching out on a chair in the lawn of our Sylhet home on a winter's morning and opening the daily newspaper. The crisp feel and smell of the paper enhanced the experience. I had waited eagerly for the hawker to throw the bundled paper over the gate. While I usually encountered many unknown words – for example, thinking “ratio” was a mis-spelling of “radio” – that never diluted my enjoyment of reading the news. My childhood days - late 1960s - were days of global volatility. Wars were major news, often reported with large, melodramatic headlines. I was too young to...

The Sweetest Water

The Sweetest Water

You could say it was the fault of my insomnia. Falling asleep late I awakened at 4 am. I was thus able to start my Srimongol trip three hours ahead of time. When I approached Habiganj on the Dhaka-Sylhet highway, extra time on my hand afforded me an opportunity for a detour. At a roundabout I headed east towards Chunarughat. This pretty road meanders through several tea gardens, cuts through Shatchori National Park and leads you to a smaller road that connects back to the Srimongol Road. The approach to Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary is also off this road. But Rema-Kalenga, though tempting, was too far. Instead I decided for a quick...
