Album: East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1990)

“I’ll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I’ve got my pride and I know how to hide
All my sorrow and pain
I’ll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for stormy skies
You won’t know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You’ll never know that I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I’ll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Could never take away my misery
But since we’re not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you’ll never see

Someday when my crying’s done
I’m gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you’ll never see me complain
I’ll do my crying in the rain

I’ll do my crying in the rain
I’ll do my crying in the rain
I’ll do my crying in the rain.”

Bengay!
Nam ta motew shubidhar na. Shune mone hote pare ‘jonab Ben shaheb ekzon shomokami’, ei rokom ekta ghoshona deya hochhe. Bepar ashole ta na. Eta khub shanto vodro dhoroner ekta oshudher nam. Oshudh na bole, cream ba rub bola uchit. Ar khati bangla vashay bolte gele ‘molom’. Jei vabe porichoy dichhi, mone hochhe duniar manush ar konodin Bengay chokhe dekhe nai. Jini ei lekha porchen, 70% shomvabona tini mone mone bolchen “dui diner boiragi, bhat re bolish onno! beta agey bar”.

Oshudh, molom ba cream jetai hok, ei kono drobber upor-e amar khub ekta sroddha nei. Oneke dekhi kichu holei godam kore ek gada oshudh kheye felen, shamanno ektu matha-betha jor jor vab holei tup tup kore ‘tylenol’ gilte thaken. Ar amar mone hoy, oshukh emni ashbe, emni chole jabe. Jodio choto thakte oshukh hoye doctor dekhano take khub anonder bepar mone hoto. Mone hoto oshukh howa sharthok hoyeche, shobai amar jonno chinta korche, tension korche, nizeke besh mulloban mone hoto. Tobe ekta ghotonar por theke doctor der upor theke amar vokti eke-barei uthe giyechilo. Shob bachha der ekta common oshukh thake. Thik school e jabar age age pet e voyongkor rokomer betha. Amaro chilo. Tobe ami buddhi shuddhi te juger theke ektu egiye chilam. Pet betha take bisshash-joggo korar jonno school e jawa chara onno shomoy-o pet betha pet betha bole chitkar kanna kati kortam. Ar amader dui bhai er ektu kichu holei abbu chintay osthir hoye poren. Shutorang amar pet betha take khub gurutter shathe dekha holo ebong amake niye jawa holo doctor er kache. Amader basha theke ektu durei ekta pharmacy chilo. Al-Islam ba Al-Amin pharmacy, ei rokom kichu ekta nam. Shei pharmacy te shoda-hassho-mukhi dui assistant (Bangladeshe tader bola hoto compounder) chilen. Ekzon ya lomba, onnojon gol gal choshma pora nayok type chehara. Tader duijon kei amar khub bhalo lagto. Bhalo lagar ek matro karon pharmacy te gelei free ‘civita’ (orange flavored vitamin C tablet) pawa jeto. Tara duijon jotoi besto thakuk ekta ‘civita’ amar kopale jutbei. To Al-Helal-Amin-Islam pharmacy’r doctor er kache jawa holo. Onekkhon opekkha kore, civita kheye teye doctor er dekha millo tar chamber e. Ebong doctor er prothom proshno ta shunei amar shomogro chikitshok jatir upor theke vokti sroddha uthe gelo. “Khoka, tomar pet betha ta shudhu school e jabar age age hoy. Onno shomoy komey jay, tai na?” Ei kotha jiggesh kore daktar muchki muchki hashchilen jeno birat ek rohossho uni ber kore felechen. Ami nizer kan ke bishash korte parchilam na.

Ami khub iniye biniye bollam “nah! ta hobe keno.. shondhar dike beshi betha kore, bikel belaw betha kore khub.” Shei theke amar dharona holo doctor ra khub e boka prani. Tobe amar jiboner ekta shomoy-e amaro doctor namer boka prani hobar gopon bashona chilo. Shesh porjonto ar boka howa hoye otheni.

Ki likhte boshe ki likhchi. Mul ghotonay firey asha jak. Mul ghotona khub ekta bishal na. Goto dui din dhore bethay ghar narate pari na. Balish theke matha pore giyechilo othoba mathar nich theke balish shore giyechilo. Jetai hok, kal sharadin amake egyptian mummy’r moto ghar shokto kore ghora fera korte hoyeche. Drive korchi, dan e bam e takate pari na, ghar beshi uchu korte pari na, voyaboho obostha :( Amar ek bondhu buddhi dilo, “tylenol kheye boshe thako, shorbo roger mohoushodh”. Ghar bethar shathe tylenol’er shomporko milate parlam na (amar dharona tylenol jor, matha bethar oshudh), tai ar khawa holo na. Ordhek rat ghar bethay ko ko kore ar baki ordhek rat ghumiye katiye uthlam ektu age. Uthe hotath mone holo Bengay er kotha. Ei Bengay niyew ar ek ghotona ache. Amar shudhu ghotonar por ghotona thaktei thake.

Tokhon ami 8/9 bochorer hobo. Amra tokhon dhanmondi te thaki. Mama eshchen USA theke Dhakay. Tokhon nana-nani dujon’e beche chilen. To nanir jonno Bengay enechen mama. Ekta plastic er bag e mora.

Tai bole eto koste joy kora toothpaste to ei vabe chere deya jayna. Ami khub utshaho niye Bengay toothbrush e makhiye dat brush korte lege gelam. Shathe shathei prochondo mukh jolte shuru korlo.

Ghar betha hole, mathay dosh dekha dey, manush ulta palta shopno dekhte shuru kore, ar matha bethar oshudh holo tylenol. Shopno tar kotha boli.

Ebong ami buzhte parchilam ei shob amake kheye shesh korte hobe, jodio roshogollar rosh er kotha chinta korei amar ga ghin ghin korchilo. Bangladeshe thakte shob shomoy shuntam; shopne pawa oshudh, shopne pawa chikitsha! Allah ki amake shopne erokom kono notun recipe’r ishara dilen?
