WAITING

Relationship, that happens to us with any person. Human to human or with nature. When the relationship broke down, then it is joyful to someone or is tragic. Binod da’s (Ghoshal) Story, “Subho, Ekti Meyechele O Koekti Mukto” such a relationship breaking story. The husband and wife or a boyfriend-girlfriend. This is bad for both, somebody can reveal and somebody are not. End of relationship is not only give a way of suicide or finish a life. Same story here, the main character in the story is planned to be finished himself. But he can’t do so, maybe he was waiting for someone to come back. According to the tone of voice Binod da "After the collapse of the love, people actually want to live their lives on any ground, he is waiting ... waiting for someone to come back or ...”

I took this story because of the Relationship status in society. Now Divorce rates are much higher. Suddenly it is going good so we got married or we love each other. But after some days it is not going good so we divorced or finish our valuable life. Remind a story of famous writer Sunil Gongopadhay, “Sob Bhalolaga Bhalobasa Noy”. (Like Is Not love)
