Sritir Shorolipi

It was after dusk and a boy had just returned from playground,still soaked with sweat.

It was time to study and just then,the electricity went off.Complete darkness fell in the home.There was none to be seen...

 

Afraid,the boy called his mother.She came immediately and told him to sit tight on the bed.She then went away and came back with a lit candle,her harmonium and her music diary.She started singing songs,one after another from her diary and the boy kept listening to them in silence.He could not understand all the words yet he loved those.The melancholy-happy melodies and that heart rendering voice breaking the fear of the dark.

 

After an hour or two,lights came.It was time to put away the harmonium,for that day.

The boy from that day,has been haunted by that little pursuit till this very moment.
