If you ask a typical Bangladeshi people; Do you like rain? most of them will say Yes! I am pretty much sure they will. That is just because geographically we are living in the continent where you will see the most beautiful monsoon.So genetically we people do love rain. And again the very next question you may ask How do you enjoy the rain? some may say that they wet themselves during the rainfall. Some may say they just enjoy the beauty of rain. Some might say I enjoying walking in the rain. So much versatility! For me! Sometimes I enjoy walking in the rain; sometimes I just sit and enjoy the beauty of rainfall. But who gave me the feelings of that enjoyment?
Full moon? do you love that? Everybody loves that but nobody explains like you before that a bright full moon how it can be?
Have you ever try something lunatic for your friend or maybe your girlfriend? finding rainy flower for your dearest one without any reason?
Who described better my teenage dreams? who before enriched my philosophic inner mind?
Its you Mr. Humayun Ahmed. The person who fulfill my imagination through his writings. Sometimes your makings (films and Drama), Or your characters Like Himu, who taught me how to be just a vagabond in a style or be Logical like Misir Ali; or making me understand those scientific terms through fiction very simply
I can still portray that weep I did for Baker bhai; or May be the song that touches my heart of Ayomoy ( আমার মরণ চাদনী পহর রাইতে যেনো হয়)…. Or Just a line
আমি সিদ্ধার্থের মতো গৃহত্যাগী জোছনার অপেক্ষায় আছি……
Maybe the fiction you wrote is making no sense for some people. But I assure you You were my first entry to the world of Books. Nobody understand us like you did while I was a child. When growing Up I used to see the world through your window.
You are the one who make me cry or feel joy with your writings and other creations of your. No matter where you are, I am sure your books give me pleasure every time I open it. It leads me to a new way of living simple but very strong….
Rest in peace Humayun Ahmed….. Thank you for your creations. You are one who shaped my life in a way that what I am today. and keep going
Dhaka, Bangladesh, Asia, Earth
