Swagata Sings to Eternity

December 29th, 2013 by Jashodhara Purkayastha



Swagata enticed us into Bliss with two songs at the Engagement of Bonny & Diya on 24 Feb 2012 …. But the cruel embrace of cancer separated us from Her and she breathed the last moment on 28-12-2013 @ 11.50 am, leaving us with a Memorable occasion on Song … “Yeh Hai Reshmi Zulfo …” and ” Lag Jaa Gale Ke Phir Yeh Hasin ..” This is a small Tribute to her …

He the cruel cancer … !
” .. the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, ”
…. Wilfred Owen

Swagata no more in this world with us … but her songs will be forever telling us her story

Power is powerful–

December 13th, 2013 by Jashodhara Purkayastha

Every day I watch from my window and wonder how crows return to their own nest at dusk. How do they recognize their own tree and nest? Alternatively, aren’t they bothered of taking shelter anywhere before dark? During twilight, if you observe, crows start caw-caw and go to their nest. Then answer comes from my mind that the Creator is so powerful and so talented that the Supreme Being has given the special ability to all THAT’S creation to go to their own nest and at sunset.

Siberian cranes come from Siberia in winter and go back to their destination during summer. They never miss the way. Do they have some kind of intelligence? On the other hand, God must have given them the potential ability to perform their specific deeds.

We all know the Power of the Divinity but trying to find out who that POWER IS.
